About this deal

Enzo, our sleuth, an ex-pat Scotsman living and teaching in France, has wagered that he could solve a cold case crime. Twenty years later, a wager throws him head first into a 10-year-old mystery involving the disappearance of a well-known, highly intelligent, and very popular man with connections in high places in government.

She then wrote 'cliched' on the board and drew a circle around it, from this she drew an arrow to the word 'this book'. However, having said that, I do expect to see more maturity and depth to this character as the series progresses, and I look forward to the next one with great anticipation. They want him off the case; the “powers that be” are embarrassed that Enzo Macleod has turned a convenient disappearance into a confirmed murder.The book would also be completely impossible in a world in which criminals were not compelled to leave full confessions in the substance of their crimes. The mystery and clues were very well done and indeed as remarked near the end without the internet would have been difficult if not impossible to solve. Yes, Macleod comes with a lot of baggage that includes his personality, living arrangements and a tendency to rely on alcohol for peace of mind. Entry Island was an interesting read, and whilst not up to the standard of the Lewis Trilogy it was still an enjoyable four stars.

Enzo finds that beneath the tranquil facade of French viticulture lurks back-stabbing community riddled with rivalry - and someone who is ready to stop him even if they have to kill again. For forensic expert Enzo Macleod, the key to this unsolved murder lies in decoding Petty's mysterious reviews - which could make or break a vineyard's reputation. The early exchanges find our hero solving a crime that has left the Parisian gendarme flummoxed for the past decade. Full details of your rights under the Distance Selling Regulations are available in the UK from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or your Local Authority's Trading Standards Office.We are given to understand that he has recently accepted a bet with the local Préfet’s that he could be able to solve a ten year old cold-case. very naive of me to think that a book set in Paris by a Brit would have similar themes running through it. He hates his daughter's boyfriend (who, in the end, saves the day and turns out to be a stellar guy despite the piercings). If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation.

It’s not my normal fare when it comes to crime teccy but Im sure it’ll appeal too many with its easy going ways. Unfortunately it appears as though I’m working on a ‘read a Peter May book or series every twelve months’ schedule, but it is better late than never. The unsolved crime here revolves around Jacques Gaillard, once a prominent government figure lecturing at an elite institute that turns out presidents, cabinet ministers and captains of industry. He seeks the input of journalist Roger Raffin, who has recently published a book on the case and, together with Raffin's ex-partner Charlotte - a forensic psychologist - they team up to follow a series of tantalising but grisly clues. EXCERPT: Moonlight glances off the shiny surface of the cobbles worn smooth by the feet of holy men.His life might be unduly complicated, but his mind is more alive than it has been in a long time, and the chase is becoming as beguiling as the charms of the alluring Charlotte. This review and others are also published on Twitter, Instagram and my webpage https://sandysbookaday. Divorced in Scotland and widowed in France, he has an estranged Scottish daughter and a French daughter he has raised by himself. The first in the series was an easy five stars, with the second and third book being strong four stars. This is not intended to be a full statement of all your rights under the Distance Selling Regulations.

To say the investigation is cold is an understatement, but the challenge might be exactly what he needs to get his career off the side track and back on the fast track. I enjoy reading Peter May's work and decided to start this series which are the only books I haven't read by him. I kept having the odd feeling with this book that it was not the first in a series and that I had missed out on some important character development in a previous book. The truth is, Macleod could use the money from the bet, and he has another reason to want to come to Paris to work for a while.By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions.
