When a local's troubling death is linked to a Russian oligarch and his multinational conglomerate, Bruno faces one of his toughest cases yet, one that brings together a French notary and a rock star--and, of course, Bergerac red and white. It's summer in the Dordogne. The heirs of a P rigordian sheep farmer learn that they have been disinherited, and their father's estate sold to an insurance company in return for a policy that will place him in a five-star retirement home for the rest of his life. But the farmer never gets his life of luxury--he dies before moving in. Was it a natural death? Was there foul play? Bruno begins the investigation that leads him to several shadowy insurance companies owned by a Russian oligarch with a Cypriot passport. The companies are based in Cyprus, Malta, and Luxembourg, but Bruno finds a weak spot in France: the Russian's France-based notaire and insurance agent. As Bruno is pursuing this lead, the oligarch's daughter turns up in the P rigord, and complications ensue, eventually bringing the action to the ch teau of an aging rock star. But, as ever, Bruno makes time for lunch amid it all.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Martin WalkerPublisher: Knopf Publishing GroupPublished: 05/26/2020ISBN: 9780525656654Pages: 320Weight: 1.05lbsSize: 8.40h x 6.10w x 1.30dReview Citations: Publishers Weekly 03/16/2020Kirkus Reviews 03/15/2020Booklist 04/01/2020 pg. 28
