Bookiness – The Crowded Grave by Martin Walker (2011)

If you’re not reading the Bruno series, you are missing out on absolutely delicious writing… in every sense of the word!

The Crowded GraveThe Crowded Grave by Martin Walker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The “Bruno” series keeps getting better and better… as do the descriptions of the food. Walker has built an entire small world in the south of France that rings with charm and believability and, necessary to a mystery plot, an odd sense of menace. While my favourite plot device continues to be from the first novel, “The Crowded Grave” enhances our knowledge of what drives Bruno and has set up a well-crafted love triangle between the policeman, his British lover, and Isabelle, the great love of his life who cannot give up her career without giving up herself.

Martin Walker cannot write another in the series fast enough for me!
