The Missing Corpse
The Missing Corpse. There’s no rushing Commissaire Georges Dupin as he connects the dots to solve a murder mystery. Much of the action in this installment takes place alongside the Belon River with its prized oyster beds. There’s also a connection to Scotland and Celtic heritage in Brittany through shared cultivation of bagpipes and oysters. This novel is a mystery lover’s treat, with an added bonus for gastronomes. I savored the engaging mystery and will now search for a dozen oysters to pair with a French white wine with just the right level of minerality.
