October 2022 - Bruno, Chief of Police
For October's meeting, we are reading Bruno, Chief of Police: A Novel of the French Countryside by Martin Walker.
Location: Lavender Hill Designs
When: Tuesday, October 4, 2022
Time: 6:00 pm
Book: Bruno, Chief of Police by Martin Walker
The first installment in the delightful, internationally acclaimed series featuring Chief of Police Bruno.
Meet Benoît Courrèges, aka Bruno, a policeman in a small village in the South of France. He’s a former soldier who has embraced the pleasures and slow rhythms of country life. He has a gun but never wears it; he has the power to arrest but never uses it. But then the murder of an elderly North African who fought in the French army changes all that.
Now Bruno must balance his beloved routines—living in his restored shepherd’s cottage, shopping at the local market, drinking wine, strolling the countryside—with a politically delicate investigation. He’s paired with a young policewoman from Paris and the two suspect anti-immigrant militants.
As they learn more about the dead man’s past, Bruno’s suspicions turn toward a more complex motive.
If you can’t make a book club meeting that’s fine. There’s always next month!

I hope everyone stays well and heathy until our next meeting.
