Frequently bought together
"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)

I recognised France, the French and their customs. This is a well written book which brings the land, the sea, and the people to life. I learned about art and Gauging without being lectured. Nothing is overstated or overwrought, and the story is all the more enjoyable for that.
I have given this 4 stars simply to have somewhere higher to go with subsequent reviews of this author and this series. I won't quibble with anyone who gives this 5 stars.
Great story however, very enjoyable. Very cross to have two books exactly the same!!!
Amazon is helpfully suggesting you buy both of them together with a third title "Murder on Brittany Shores" by the same author, which as least a different book. Beware! And Amazon, get your act together.
