If You Like Jean-Luc Bannalec Books, You’ll Love…

Death in Brittany is the first book in the series and the first published case of Commissaire Georges Dupin. He is a cantankerous man who enjoys a fine cup of coffee, but one day he is taking from his coffee to the scene of a curious murder. The victim is a 91-year old hotelier named Pierre and the small town is in shock. It is the height of tourist season in Pont-Aven and the murder is not good for business. Dupin has a job to do though and he’ll look to solve the case by delving into the life of the victim. There he will uncover a web of secrecy that wouldn’t seem possible for a small village as this.

Another case for Dupin is The Fluer de Sel Murders. This book sees Dupin taking a trip to the “white country”, the salt marshes of the Guérande Peninsula, on a getaway. Trouble finds him when he’s attacked in the salt works. He is ask for help by a journalist friend to have a look around, but when the friend goes missing he has a whole other case on his hands. In the strange town, he’ll have to work alongside the local investigator to figure out what’s going on in the salt works.
