Samenvatting

Recensie(s)

Praise for Death in the Vines-Judge Antoine Verlaque, the sleuth in this civilized series, discharges his professional duties with discretion. But we're here to taste the wines, which are discussed by experts like Hippolyte Thebaud, a former wine thief, and served in beautiful settings like a 300-year-old stone farmhouse. So many bottles, so many lovely views. A reader might be forgiven for feeling woozy.- --Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review -Though the plot is hair-raising, what keeps you glued to this mystery is its vivid portrait of everyday life in Aix, which deftly juxtaposes the elegance of the city . . . with quotidian woes and pleasures.- --Oprah.com -As much as the mystery intrigues--in this case some intertwined crimes involving a local winery, a missing elderly woman, and a rich man's suspicious construction project--what really makes Longworth's books enjoyable are the atmosphere and details that she includes of the South of France.- --The Seattle Post-Intelligencer -What follows is a lovely, almost cozy police procedural that deserves to be read with a glass of wine in hand. Longworth paints such a loving picture of Provence that it's likely you'll start planning a vacation trip to France the moment you set the book down.- --The Denver Post -This is an intelligently written police procedural with the warm comfort of a baguette with banon cheese.- --Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine -Enjoyable . . . the book's real strength is its evocation of place.- --Publishers Weekly Praise for Murder in the Rue Dumas -Fans of European sleuths with a taste for good food . . . will have fun.- --Publishers Weekly -What really makes Longworth's writing special is her deep knowledge of French history, landscape, cuisine, and even contemporary cafes and restaurants. This is that rare atmospheric mystery that is street-wise and cafe-canny.- --Booklist(starred review) -Longworth's gentle procedural succeeds on several levels, whether it's for academic and literary allusions, police work, or armchair travel. With deftly shifting points of view, Longworth creates a beguiling read that will appeal to Louise Penny and Donna Leon fans.- --Library Journal -French-set mysteries have never been more popular [and] among the very best is a series set in Provence featuring Monsieur Verlaque, an examining magistrate, and his sometime girlfriend, law professor Marine Bonnet.- --The Denver Post
