Martin Walker (Bruno Series)

Bruno, Chief of Police

Posted October 5, 2015 By jviescas

In my spare time (lots now that I’m retired), I really enjoy reading what in France they call “policiers” – crime novels. This series is especially apropos if, like me, you love the Dordogne – Perigord region of France and all the good food that comes from there (truffles, foie gras, confit de canard, etc.). In quite a few chapters, he has the main character whipping up regional food to serve his guests. You can find the complete recipes for many dishes mentioned at the Bruno, Chief of Police website.

The author is an internationally acclaimed author of many in-depth non-fiction books in political science and history. He lives in the Perigord much of the year, and in the last several years has started writing excellent crime novels centered on the area of France he loves. Be sure to read them in order.
