The Children’s Return by Martin Walker

The Children’s Return by Martin WalkerBenoit Coureges (aka Bruno) is Chief of Police in a small town in the Dordogne region of France. Much of the book details the region (wine-making) and Bruno’s cooking. The police procedural part is topical with the search for jihadist radicals, but the actual police action is limited in terms of violence and body count. So a refreshing addition to the list of mystery writers where context is key.
