Smile Bruno recommendation

Discovered, almost accidentally, an excellent read - "Bruno Chief of Police" by Martin Walker - the trials and tribulations of a policeman in a small town and surroundings in the Dordoigne area of France. Fascinating, and - to my eyes anyway, authentic, and truly gives a whiff of small town France.

Very enjoyable.

Yup, very enjoyable, and highly recommended. I first recommended Bruno here. And the second book in the series is at least as good. Holding off buying more, but only because I'm really trying to be good about buying for a while.

Thanks very much for the recommendation. I'm now halfway through #3 ("Black Diamond") and enjoying it at least as much as nos 1 and 2.

The Resistance Man was released today, in the UK.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Resistance-B...mm_kin_title_0

It is not due to be released until February 25, 2014 in the US.
If you have not read the series give it a try.

Children of War is set to be released on May 22, 2014 in the UK.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Children-War...=Martin+Walker
There is not a release date for the US yet, that I could find. Another reason to love Amazon UK.
