# UM1152 Paperback, 318 pages; 2014
Currently Unavailable
Commissaire Georges Dupin - recently relocated from Paris to the picturesque and history-rich Brittany region of France - finds himself begrudgingly charmed with small-town life on the Breton coast. But when the idyllic seaside community of Pont-Aven is upended by the murder of a prominent hotelier, Dupin delves into a sinister plot worthy of the seediest Parisian crime ring. A secret affair, a family feud, a lost Gauguin painting worth millions, a crime-scene break-in, a second dead body...each uncovered clue seems to bring more questions than answers. But the surly Dupin knows he just needs to avoid his superiors long enough to sort everything out, with the help of strong coffee, excellent seafood, exquisite views, and a particularly charming art historian. A well-crafted, old-fashioned detective story costarring a cantankerous detective and the eerily beautiful westernmost region of France, Death in Brittany will intrigue art-lovers, Francophiles, and mystery fans.
