The Devil's Cave

Fraud. I set aside the fifth installment in Martin Walker’s Bruno Chief of Police series, The Devil’s Cave, the way one would let a fine wine age a bit before consuming it. Since the sixth installment was moving up in my queue, I could wait no longer, and zipped through this novel enjoying every page. The novel opens with a dead woman, marked with a Satanist symbol and accompanied by the accruements of a black mass. St. Denis’ police chief, Bruno Courrèges, is on the case, along with a familiar cast from earlier novels, and some fine additions. The plot moves quickly, and turns to real estate fraud. What happens to Bruno inside the cave may be the most dramatic plot action of all the novels so far. Fans will love this contribution to the series. Any reader who likes character based crime fiction will love this one. An added bonus can be found here with the beautiful descriptions of the Perigord and the consumption of lots of fine food.
