Author: Martin Walker Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/03/2016

The Dordogne town of St Denis may be picturesque and sleepy, but it has more than its fair share of mysteries, as Bruno knows all too well. But when Bruno is invited to the 90th birthday of a powerful local patriarch - a war hero with high-level political connections in France, Russia and Israel - he encounters a family with more secrets than even he had imagined. When one of the other guests is found dead the next morning and the family try to cover it up, Bruno knows it's his duty to prevent the victim from becoming just another skeleton in their closet. Even if his digging reveals things Bruno himself would rather keep buried. Meanwhile, very modern battles are being fought in St Denis between hunters defending their traditions and environmentalists protecting local wildlife. Neither side, it seems, is above the use of violent tactics. At the centre of it all, Bruno must use all his cunning and character to protect his community's future from its present - and its past.

Police Captain Bruno Courreges supports their resistance. Although, here in what was once Vichy France, words like 'Gestapo' and 'resistance' still carry a profound resonance. When an old man, head of an immigrant North African family, is found murdered, suspicion falls on the son of the local doctor, found in flagrante playing sex games surrounded by Nazi paraphernalia. But Bruno isn't convinced, and suspects this crime may have its roots in that most tortured period of recent French history - the Second World War, a time of terror and betrayal that set brother against brother. Now it's up to him to find the killer - but will the people of St Denis allow him to go digging through the past in order to do it?

As President of the one true superpower Bill Clinton is recognised from Beijing to St Petersburg, from Caracas to Johannesburg; the ruddy face, the bear-like hug, THAT hair are instantly identifiable, triggering a series of other images that have attached themselves to him during his period of office such as the smirk of alleged adulteries, the whiff of financial impropriety, the buzz of drugs for which Clinton bailed his brother out of jail. Each of these incidents has been the subject of intensve press scrutiny and speculation, and the media has heaped opprobrium on Clinton to a degree unknown previously in global politics. More than any other President, Clinton is both a product and a manipulator of the media that is his constant companion. In this biography Martin Walker interprets the media with the expert eye of a vastly experienced member of the political pack. He sees inside the tactics and the deliberate representations that both Bill and Hillary have adopted to sway opinion in their favour.
