The Resistance Man A Bruno Courreges Investigation by Martin Walker

Lovereading view...

The sixth in the Bruno, Chief of Police in St Denis, South of France series. You should read them all. Here his girlfriend problems continue and more local crime erupts, plus possible money from a 1944 bank robbery when the Resistance stole the reserves of the Banque de France. The money was never recovered … until now? This is gentle crime with Bruno knowing all the locals in his small community. They are lovely books.

The Resistance Man A Bruno Courreges Investigation by Martin Walker

In St Denis, Bruno, chef de police, can't get a moment's rest. Some rare bank notes have come to light that may have links to the legendary Neuvic train robbery in 1944. The investigation is fraught with issues. Bruno is also dealing with a wave of local burglaries, which have brought his old flame, Isabelle - and their complicated history - back to the town. Worse is to come. Tasked with piecing together these past crimes, Bruno now finds he has the more pressing matter of a body on his hands. He must now trace the links between past and present to restore peace in St Denis.
