Product description


"A charming French village, great food, eccentric characters and a mystery to nudge things along.... Savory indeed." --The Seattle Times

"Deliciously good.... An enticing mix of the savory and suspenseful, a recipe for a great read." --Christian DuChateau, CNN

"Walker's series is ... a potion to convert remaining skeptics to the joie de vivre that infuses French life.... Everyone needs a friend in southern France to go spend some time with, and Walker has opened Bruno's door to anyone who has a few hours to join him in the simple joys of la vie en rose." --The Washington Independent

"Beneath the Gallic charm that Walker conjures so effortlessly are modern mores and characters more convincing--and cruel--than you might at first assume. . . . Beguiling. . . . So likeable is Courreges, and so convincing his milieu, that I was desperate for more Bruno as soon as Black Diamond's brisk and brutal conclusion came." --Rebecca Armstrong, The Independent (London)

"In Walker's hands, Black Diamond becomes a savory mystery, a light concoction with tantalizing ingredients." --Associated Press

"Like the aroma of amateur chef Bruno's venison stew, which virtually leaps off the pages, Walker's unmistakable affection for the 'enchanting Périgord' makes every morsel of this cozy-cum-crime novel a savory delight." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Martin Walker's delightful Bruno series makes you want to buy a ticket and immerse yourself in la France Profonde." --The Irish Independent

"Consistently charming. . . . Bruno Courrèges may be a small-town cop, but he's anything but small-minded. Walker . . . has created a character who's endearingly human and worldly wise." --Booklist

"Mouth-watering . . . Walker's fluid writing keeps getting better." --Curled Up With a Good Book

"A paean to the truffle. . . . This political thriller is supplemented by a glorious foodie's delight, from an author who knows his way around the French passions." --Kirkus Reviews

"Wonderfully rich. . . . A delightful basset hound and his charming girlfriend round out Courrèges's private world and offer him an oft needed respite and someone with whom to bounce ideas." --The Mystery Reader
