Recent new find, and one of the best I have read in recent crime fiction. Martin Walker and his Bruno series. Set in the Dordogne region in France, the books are like a mix of Peter Mayle's books about Provence and the cozy British country side detective novels. 5 books in the series thus far, and I am on the fourth. They seem to get better as the series progresses. Not essential, but best read in order. Highly recommended, very addictive, comfort food, but classier kind.
