When local nobleman tienne de Bremont falls to his death from the family ch teau, it sets the idyllic town of Aix-en-Provence abuzz with rumors. Antoine Verlaque, the handsome and seductive chief magistrate of Aix, suspects foul play, and when he discovers that Bremont had been a close friend of his ex-girlfriend Marine, Verlaque turns to her for help. Many of Aix's local citizens could have benefited from Bremont's death, including his playboy brother Fran ois, who's heavily in debt and involved with some unsavoury characters. But just as Verlaque is interviewing the main suspects, another death occurs. And this time there is no ambiguity about the cause - it's murder.
'Longworth's voice is like a rich vintage of sparkling Dorothy Sayers and grounded Donna Leon.' Booklist (starred review)
