Death in Brittany by Jean-Luc Bannalec
Commissaire Georges Dupin, a cantankerous, Parisian-born caffeine junkie recently relocated from the glamour of Paris to the remote Breton coast, is dragged from his morning croissant and coffee to the scene of a curious murder. The local village of Pont-Avent is in shock. Ninety-one-year-old hotelier Pierre-Louis Pennec, has been found dead. As Dupin delves into the lives of the victim and the suspects, he uncovers a web of secrecy and silence that belies the village's quaint image.
