Roll over Maigret. Commissaire Dupin has arrived. Death in Pont-Aven is a classic' M.C. Beaton A baffling murder in an idyllic French seaside village, a tangle of family secrets and a puzzling mystery await Commissaire Dupin in this captivating whodunit thriller. Commissaire Georges Dupin, a cantankerous, Parisian-born caffeine junkie, is dragged from his croissants and coffee one morning to the scene of a curious murder. Ninety-one-year-old hotelier Pierre Louis Pennec has been found dead on his restaurant floor. The killing shatters the peace of the Breton village of Pont-Aven - a seaside community where everyone knows one another and nothing much seems to happen. As Dupin's investigation proceeds, he uncovers a web of secrecy and silence that belies the village's idyllic image. The first in the Commissaire Dupin series, Death in Pont-Aven introduces the enigmatic policeman whose peculiar methods of detection raise more than a few eyebrows. Packed with the atmosphere of a beautiful seaside village, mouth-watering Breton cuisine and the smell of the Atlantic air, this is a spellbinding, subtle crime novel, full of wry humour and surprising twists. Over 700,000 copies sold worldwide.
