Death of a Master Chef: A Brittany Mystery (Brittany Mystery Series #9) (Hardcover)
Jean-Luc Bannalec's internationally bestselling series starring Commissaire Georges Dupin returns with Death of a Master Chef.
These first beautiful summer days in June would be perfect for a fun trip to Saint-Malo. But, to his chagrin, Commissaire Georges Dupin has to go there instead to attend a police seminar dedicated to closer collaboration between the Breton départements.
During a break, Dupin goes wandering through the market halls in the old city, and a murder takes place right before his eyes. The perpetrator flees. She is the victim’s sister; the women used to be competing chefs from the region. It soon becomes clear that this is just the beginning of an insidious series of homicides. In a race against time, Dupin begins to investigate, together with the commissioners from the other départements. In the process, they stumble on hair-raising family secrets, tragic upheavals, and incredible stories in the oyster city Cancale, stately seaside resort of Dinard, and Saint-Malo’s unique restaurant scene.
