Product description

Review

"Jean-Luc Bannalec is the pen name of a German author who has channeled his affection for the westernmost region of France into a charming first mystery. Death in Brittany is a traditional whodunit featuring an eccentric detective full of Parisian scorn for superiors and subordinates alike... before [he] can solve the case, he finds it absolutely necessary to gas up his Citroën and visit as many picturesque villages, with their pretty harbors and quaint stone houses, as he possibly can." --New York Times Book Review

"Roll over Maigret. Commisaire Dupin has arrived." --M. C. Beaton

"Francophiles and art lovers will welcome Bannalec's good old-fashioned detective story set in Brittany... Like Simenon's Maigret, Dupin is a loner, who relies on thorough data and objective analysis to make his deductions. Bannelec excels at plotting and pacing, as well as vivid descriptions of the Finistère countryside. Readers will look forward to seeing more Dupin books from this talented author." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A setting to die for... The star of the mystery, though, is Brittany. Bannalec feeds the reader with intriguing bits of history (for example, Bretons are descended from the Celts, who fled Britain during the Anglo-Saxon invasions) and culture, along with bracing glimpses of centuries-old stone buildings, river banks, and the sea." --Booklist, starred review

"Dupin's debut, published first in Germany and then in Britain, holds the promise of more pleasant puzzlers from the scenic north of France." --Kirkus Reviews

"Dupin is a quirky as his Italian counterparts Montalbano and Brunetti--a cheerful, sun-drenched, stress-free whodunit thriller." --Der Spiegel (Germany)

"A love letter to Brittany." --Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (Germany)

"Bannalec manages to create an incredibly intense atmosphere." --Mannheimer Morgen (Germany)

"Deftly wrought and suspenseful." --Good Book Guide (UK)
