Good for summer, or any other time: a new installment in Martin Walker’s popular, pleasantly heady France-set ‘Bruno, Chief of Police’ novels. He is here tonight with the newest, The Templars’ Last Secret (Knopf), this once again in and near St. Denis, France.
“My admiration for Martin Walker’s novels featuring the unflappable Bruno, Chief of Police, grows with each new book in the series. Whether Bruno is solving a crime, creating a soufflé, charming a newcomer to St. Denis, or yearning for a past love, Walker brings it all together, educating us about the region, food, wine, and moving carefully toward a satisfying conclusion. I’m ready for the next one!” —Diane Rehm.
“Just the thing for readers hungry for a banquet of epicurean pleasures, ancient history, international terrorism, and holy matrimony.” —Kirkus Reviews.
