“Stylish . . . a detective tale with a theme as old as Cain and Abel, as new as tomorrow's headlines, and as eternal as the Greek myths that inspire Magnan's fiction.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The Messengers of Death

“A pleasantly old-fashioned mystery thriller with quirky charm aplenty.” —Kirkus Reviews on The Messengers of Death

“An intellectual feast . . . worthy of that other master of the French mystery, Georges Simenon. A winner.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch on Death in the Truffle Wood

“Delightful, old-fashioned . . . wrapped in the rich atmosphere of 1960s Provence. The setting will draw in Peter Mayle fans, even if they are not regular mystery readers.” —Booklist on The Messengers of Death
