Description - Murder In The Rue Dumas by M. L. Longworth
When Dr. Georges Moutte is found murdered, Judge Antoine Verlaque is stumped. Certainly, the director of theology at the Universite d'Aix had his enemies. Moutte was just about to name the recipient of an elite fellowship as well as his own successor - a highly coveted position that includes a lavish apartment in a seventeenth-century mansion - when his lips were sealed permanently. Yet, Verlaque isn't convinced that any of the academics are capable of murder. Aided by his on-again, off-again girlfriend, law professor Marine Bonnet, Verlaque turns Provence upside down, uncovering a world far more complicated than university politics. 'Longworth's voice is a like a rich vintage of sparkling Dorothy Sayers and grounded Donna Leon.' Booklist (starred review) 'The pacing is perfect, the characters delightful, and the setting so real it's impossible not to think you can reach out and touch it. Do not miss this book!' Tasha Alexander 'A promising debut for Longworth, who shows there's more to France than Paris and more to mystery than Maigret.' Kirkus Reviews (Death at the Chateau Bremont)
