Jean-Luc Bannalec’s Brittany Mystery Series follows the cantankerous, Parisian-born caffeine junkie detective, Commissaire Dupin, adjusting to his new duties on France’s remote, yet picturesque, Breton coast. But he quickly learns that the beauty and familial community of the sea villages contain just as much crime and corruption as any big city.
“Francophiles and art lovers will welcome Bannalec’s good old-fashioned detective story set in Brittany… Bannelec excels at plotting and pacing, as well as vivid descriptions of the Finistère countryside.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
