The Resistance Man

Inheritance. The sixth novel to feature St. Denis’ chief of police, Bruno Courrèges, is titled, The Resistance Man. Some crime fiction series become repetitive over time, and they can fail to maintain a reader’s interest in the central character, especially when the protagonist remains unchanged. Not this series. Walker seems to increase our knowledge of Bruno in each novel, along with our interest in French food and in the Dordogne region. Walker piles on the plot lines and characters in this novel, beginning with the title, a reference to the death of a World War II resistance fighter. Every plot line was enjoyable and added to my overall interest in the novel. If there’s a single theme, it may be the nature of inheritance. By the end of the novel, I was totally satisfied with time well spent in France. Readers new to the series can easily start here.
