The Body in the Castle Well: A Bruno, Chief of Police novel (Bruno, Chief of Police Series)

We rated this book:


Claudia Muller is an American art student who has come to the Perigord region of France to study the collection of a local notable, Monsieur de Bourdeille. She is welcomed by the collector and everyone else in the area and well-liked by all. But when her body is found at the bottom of a well at the local castle Bruno, Chief of Police is tasked with finding out what happened.

The Body in the Castle Well is a mystery rich in detail, full of historical information which provides an added layer of intrigue. The magical atmosphere full of food, friends, and the glorious French countryside will no doubt leave readers wanting more. Even when there is a murder to solve there is still time for a hearty lunch and a ride through local trails on Bruno’s favorite horse, Hector, with his basset hound, Balzac, trotting eagerly behind.

This is a series that I have come to know and love over the last few years. It’s as satisfying as a good glass of wine, and I always find myself waiting for the next installment. For those wanting a good mystery and a taste of France, this is an excellent place to start.
