From the critically acclaimed author of "Le Crime, " published in hardcover as "A French Country Murder, " comes this electrifying sequel featuring former CIA operative Louis Morgon and his partner-in-crime-solving, Jean Renard, the gendarme of their small French village.
Louis Morgon is living a quiet life of good food, good wine, and good friends. When his house is burglarized, he thinks nothing of it. But the burglar and the motive for the burglary are not as simple as they seem. And the consequences of the seemingly trivial break-in will lead Louis and his loved ones to the end of the earth---and quite possibly to the end of their lives.
This is Peter Steiner’s second novel in the Louis Morgon thriller series; the first, Le Crime, originally published in hardcover under the title A French Country Murder, is available in paperback from Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin’s Minotaur. Also known for his cartoons in The New Yorker, he lives in Connecticut.
