Corpse Diplomatique

(The third book in the Jane and Dagobert Brown series)
A novel by

"I feel as though I've been to the French Riviera and had the most delightful time. I'm having trouble containing my enthusiasm for this book, so I won't. I only merely LOVED IT!" - In So Many Words blog

It's 1950, and Dagobert's latest obsession is Bertran de Born, the bard of Provencal. What better reason to abandon London for the South of France? But before Jane and Dagobert can settle into the rustic Provencal village he's envisioned, they find themselves stuck in Nice, embroiled in the attempted murder of the consulate of Santa Rica, and in the tangled lives of their fellow guests at the Hotel Negresco.

Another slyly witty Golden Age mystery from Delano Ames, Corpse Diplomatique is listed among the "British Mystery 100 Classics of the Genre" in The Essential Mystery Lists (Poisoned Pen Press, 2007). This annotated Manor Minor Press edition offers entertaining information about the culture of the period.
