This is a new mystery series I found. The books are written by Martin Walker, a foreign policy expert, who lives part time in Washington, DC and part time in the Dordogne region of France, where the books take place.
Bruno is the policeman in the small hamlet of St. Denis. He’s a veteran of the French Army and their peacekeeping force in the 1990’s in Bosnia. After what he dealt with he enjoys playing Rugby and teaching Rugby and Tennis to the local kids. The Mayor likes him. People wonder which woman he will end up with.
You have to read the books, I am not giving it away. I will leave you with the fact, that he solves cases with a great deal of tact and common sense.
