Descriptions du produit



It felt like the first morning of spring. The early sun was chasing the mist from the wooded hollows that sheltered the small streams flowing busily down to the River Vézère. Drops of dew sparkled on the new buds that seemed to have appeared overnight on the bare trees. The air smelled somehow different, fresh and hopeful, and enlivened by the tuneful notes of a dozen different birdsongs. Excited by the change in scents and season, even after his early morning walk through the woods, Gigi the basset hound thrust his nose at the open window of the small police van that descended the steep and curving lane from his master’s home. At the wheel, Bruno was singing a half-­remembered song about springtime in Paris. Vaguely thinking of the duties of the day that stretched before him, when rounding the last bend he was suddenly forced to brake.

For the first time in his memory, the quiet road ahead was blocked with a line of cars and tractors, their engines running and their drivers’ heads poking from windows. Some were out of their cars, looking at the road that led to St. Denis. Several were talking urgently into cell phones. In the distance a car horn sounded, swiftly joined by others in discordant chorus. As Bruno surveyed the scene his own phone began to ring. He checked the screen, recognized the name of Pierre, a neighbor who lived farther up the road. He ignored it, assuming Pierre would be calling to complain at being stuck in the jam ahead. There had to be an accident of some sort.

Bruno pushed aside the thought that he could have avoided this delay if he’d stayed the night with Pamela, the English-woman he’d been seeing since the autumn. She had called off the arrangement that he would dine with her and stay the night, saying she’d finally secured an early morning appointment with the maréchal, the traveling farrier who was to reshoe her horses. Pamela postponed their meetings too frequently for Bruno’s comfort, and he was never quite sure whether she was cooling on their relationship or simply wary of commitment. They were to meet again that evening, he reminded himself, without feeling greatly reassured. He parked the van and climbed out to investigate. The best view of the long traffic jam was commanded by Alain, who kept a dairy farm farther up the road to Les Eyzies.

“Geese—­the road’s full of ducks and geese,” he called down to Bruno from his perch high on a tractor. “They’re all over the place.”

Bruno heard the sound of rival honking as the geese called back in response to the car horns, and he quickly clambered up beside Alain to peer ahead. The traffic jam stretched as far up the road as he could see. Darting between the stalled cars were perhaps hundreds of ducks and geese, streaming through the woods on the side of the road and heading across it to settle in a broad pond that spread across the meadow, swollen by the spring rains.

“That’s Louis Villatte’s farm, behind those woods,” said Alain. “A tree must have come down and broken his fence, let them all escape. There’s over three thousand birds in there. Or rather, there used to be. Looks like he’s lost a few to the cars too.”

“Have you got his number?” Bruno asked. Alain nodded. “Call him, see if he knows his birds have escaped. Then go through those woods and see if you can help Louis block the gap in his fence. I’ll try and sort this out here. Join you later.”

Bruno went back to his van, released Gigi, and walked with him down the road, brushing aside the drivers’ angry queries. A driver he knew was looking mournfully at a broken headlamp while a wounded goose lay half pinned under his car, honking feebly.

“You grew up on a farm, Pierre,” Bruno told him, rushing past. “Put the poor devil out of its misery.” Looking back, he saw Pierre bend to grip the goose behind its head and twist. The bird fluttered wildly and then went limp. Even when the farm boy grew up like Pierre to work in an accountant’s office, he hadn’t lost the skill.

When he came to the main grouping of birds, advancing in a jumbled column from the woods, Bruno saw that the road ahead was blocked by some stalled cars coming the other way. He briefly considered using Gigi to turn the birds back, but they would go off and cross the road elsewhere. There was no stopping this exodus, so he might as well try to speed it up and clear the road. He persuaded the leading cars in each queue to reverse a little to make a broader passage to let the birds pass freely across to the pond. Some drivers tried to argue, but he pointed out that the sooner he could stop the supply of ducks, the sooner the road would unblock. He left them grumbling and took Gigi into the trees, trotting past the trail of ducks and geese that was still pottering and waddling its way from the Villatte farm. Bruno smiled to himself, wondering if the birds felt a sense of escape or curiosity, of adventure triggered by the coming of springtime.

Louis and his wife were already at the huge hole torn in the fence. No tree had fallen, no tractor had ridden through the sturdy barrier of wooden posts and chicken wire that ringed the farm. Instead, whole fence posts had been hauled from the earth and the wire cut. With boards and old doors and cardboard boxes stuffed beneath an ancient tractor, Louis was trying to plug the gaps in the fence. His wife and eldest son were flapping their arms, and their dog was barking to shoo away the ducks and geese following their fellows toward the freedom of the woods.

Without being told, Gigi darted forward to help drive the birds back from the fence, and Bruno helped Alain to haul some branches from broken trees to seal the remaining gaps in the wire. Once the makeshift barrier was in place, Louis came forward to shake their hands. Gigi and Louis’s dog sniffed politely at each other’s tails and then sat beside each other, staring at any bird daring to approach.

“We’ve been at this since daybreak,” Louis said. “You see how big this gap is? Some bastard ripped this fence down deliberately and did a good job of it.”

“And we know who,” added Sandrine, his wife. “Look at this, stuck on the bits of the fence they didn’t tear down.” She handed Bruno a photocopied leaflet, sealed inside a transparent plastic envelope.

“STOP cruelty to animals. Boycott foie gras,” he read. There was a smudged photocopied image of a duck held down in a narrow cage. A flexible tube hanging from above was thrust into its mouth by an unidentified man who was stretching the duck’s neck taut for the force-­feeding. At the bottom, it read “Contactez PETAFrance.com.”

“Who’s this PETA?” asked Alain, peering over Bruno’s shoulder.

“People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals,” said Bruno. “It’s an American thing, maybe British, but it’s growing in France. They made a big fuss up in Paris about battery chickens and veal, those calves kept in pens. Looks like they’ve started running a campaign against foie gras.”

“But that’s our livelihood,” said Sandrine. “And we don’t make foie gras, we just raise the birds.”

“And look at this,” said Louis. “The wire’s been cut with proper cutters. This was organized.” He showed Bruno the snipped strands of wire. “Then they pulled it away somewhere, hiding the stretches of wire they cut. I sent the other boy out looking for it in the woods.”

“City bastards,” grunted Alain. “Don’t know the first thing about the country and they come here like a bunch of terrorists and try to ruin people.” He turned aside and spat. “You find out who they are, Bruno, and we’ll take care of the rest.”

Bruno ignored Alain’s outrage on behalf of his fellow farmer. “All the birds seem to be heading for that pond on the far side of the road,” he told Louis. “Have you got some way to round them up and bring them back?”

“I’ll ring the food bell. That brings most of them running. And for the rest, I’ve got some netting. That’s how we usually round them up. I’ll put them in the trailer and bring them back once I’ve got this fence fixed.”

“Sooner the better, because they’ve blocked the whole road into town,” said Bruno. “That’s what brought me here.”

“Crazy birds,” said Louis, grimacing in rueful affection. “They’ve got a perfectly good pond back in the field, but give them a sniff of someplace new and off they go.” He gestured back beyond his house where already some of the ducks, frustrated at their efforts to escape through the newly sealed barrier, were splashing and paddling serenely in their old familiar pond.

A young boy of about ten labored toward them from the woods, proudly hauling a section of wire fence.

“I found it, Papa,” he shouted. “And there’s more. I can show you where.” His face broke into a grin at seeing Bruno, who taught him to play rugby in winter and tennis in summer. “Bonjour, Monsieur Bruno.” He dropped the fence and came forward to shake hands.

“Bonjour, Daniel. Did you see or hear anything when this happened?”

“Nothing. The first I heard was when Papa woke us all up to come out and save the birds.”

“I heard something, a duck call, a single one and then repeated, just before the cockerel started,” said Louis. “So it must have been a bit before dawn. I remember thinking that’s odd, because the ducks don’t usually stir until after the hens.”

“Could it have been a lure, one of those hunter’s calls?” Bruno asked. “Whoever cut the fence must have had some way to wake the birds and tempt them to move. They’d have wanted them out before you and the family were awake.”

“It must have been something like that,” Sandrine said. “The birds tend to stick around the barn, waiting to be fed. They’ve never gone off before, even when we had that storm that knocked part of the fence down.”

“I’d better get back to the road and see that jam is cleared,” said Bruno.

“Before you go, what do you know about this PETA?” asked Sandrine.

“Not a lot, but I’ll find out,” Bruno replied. “I think you’ve lost one or two birds to the cars, but not many.”

“Those birds are worth six euros each to us,” said Sandrine. “We can’t afford to lose any of them, what with the bank loan we have to pay until we sell this lot. What if those PETA people come again?”

“I’ll shoot the bastards,” Louis said. “We’ll take turns keeping watch, sit up all night if we have to.”

“You have a right to protect your property with reasonable force, according to the law,” said Bruno. “But people interpret ‘reasonable force’ in different ways. If you hear anything happening again, it’s best you call me. Whatever you do, don’t use a firearm or any kind of weapon. The best thing is to photograph them so we can identify who they are. If you have any lights you can rig up, or one of those motion detectors . . .”

“A camera won’t do any good,” said Alain. “Even with photos the damn courts will take their side. They’re all mad Greenies, the magistrates. Then there’s those food inspectors and all the other rules and regulations, tying us up in knots.”

“I think I know who it is,” said Sandrine. “It’s those students at the archaeology site who came in last week, working on some dig with that German professor, over toward Campagne. They’re all staying at the municipal campground. This time of year, they’re the only strangers around here and you know what those students are like. They’re all Greens now.”

Bruno nodded. “I’ll check it out. See you later.” Along the fence he saw the fluttering of another of the leaflets inside a plastic bag, one of the kind that could be sealed and used in freezers. He took out a handkerchief and gingerly removed the pins that held it to the wire. Forensics might get something from it. There were several more attached along the fence and he took another. He nodded at Alain. “Do you want to come with me? You’ll have to move your tractor.”

As he reached the road, where the jam was steadily clearing itself, Bruno’s phone rang again. He checked the screen, saw the name “Horst,” and this time he answered. Horst Vogelstern was the German professor of archaeology in charge of the student volunteers at the dig. For more than twenty years Horst had spent his vacations at a small house he owned on the outskirts of St. Denis. He ran digs in the Vézère Valley that the local tourist board liked to proclaim as the cradle of prehistoric man. The first site of Cro-­Magnon man had been found in the valley over a hundred years earlier, and the famous cave paintings of Lascaux were farther up the river. It was a source of pride to Bruno that he lived in this valley that could claim the longest continuous human habitation of anywhere on earth.

Bruno had attended a couple of Horst’s lectures, delivered in excellent if strongly accented French. He had visited his digs and read a couple of articles Horst had published in the popular monthly Dossiers d’Archéologie. Normally a quiet man, Horst became passionate when he talked of his subject, the great mystery of the replacement of the Neanderthals by the Cro-­Magnons some thirty thousand years ago. Had it been violent? Did they interbreed? Were the Neanderthals wiped out by some plague or disease? It was, said Horst, the crucial question regarding our human origins. Whenever Horst spoke, Bruno caught a sense of the excitement that gripped the scholar.

“Horst,” he answered. “How are you? I was just on my way to see you at the dig.”

“Good, we need you here right away. And you had better bring a doctor with you. We’ve found a body.”

“Congratulations. Isn’t that what you wanted to find?”

“Yes, yes, but I want skeletons from the distant past. This one is wearing a St. Christopher medal around his neck and I think he’s also wearing a Swatch. This is your department, Bruno, not mine.”

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Bruno at his Best 30 avril 2013
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Things in St. Denis, the usually quiet village in the heart of Dordogne, are suddenly becoming very complicated for its Chief of Police, Bruno Courreges. On one hand, the town is being harassed by members of PETA who are sabotaging the region's fois gras business, on the other a new, young, over zealous magistrate is making life difficult for everyone, the remains of a anonymous murdered man are found in an archeologic dig on the outskirts of town, Bruno has been seconded to the Ministry of Interior to help assure the security of a summit meeting on terrorism and, as if all that were not enough, the summit is being organized by Bruno's old lover, Isabelle. Bruno is forced to walk a very thin line indeed from one crisis to the next and not become distracted by his confusion relative to his old lover and his present flame. He succeeds meeting most of these challengers (except perhaps his own personal delimma over his relationships) while sheparding us through the gstronomic delights of the Perigord region. This is diffinitely a must read for all Martin Walker fans.

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Intéressant de voir comment dans une petite ville au sud de la France un policier est appelé à faire face à des situations qui font partie de notre vécu actuel. J'ose spéculer que, comme Allan Massie, Martin Walker traite des sujets que l'écrivain français lambda n'abordera pas. Allan Massie est plus ancré dans l'occupation avec son Bordeaux trilogie; Martin Walker est plus moderne avec ses histoires de manifestants contre le foie gras; mais il introduit l'histoire aussi. Ici il s'agit de l'ETA, des Basques et des réfugiés de la guerre en Espagne. Bien écrit, c'est plus qu'un divertissement. A recommander absolument.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Terrorists invade the peaceful Périgord 17 juillet 2012
Par Patto - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Bruno's idyllic life as Chief of Police of St. Denis gets seriously interrupted in this latest mystery set in the gastronomic heart of France. He scarcely has time to feed his chickens and ducks, walk his dog, and make love to the local mad Scotswoman - what with attacks on the Périgord fois gras industry by animal rights activists, and a sensitive summit meeting on Basque terrorism about to be held in St. Denis.

Bruno is assigned to help plan security for the summit, which brings him into contact with his former lover, Isabella, the Intelligence officer in charge of base operations. Bruno has a habit of falling for strong women who value career or independence over relationships. With two such lovers stirring his emotions in this book, he finds it hard sometimes to keep his mind on terrorist threats.

One thread in the complex plot I especially enjoyed evolves around an archeological dig. The Périgord is the cradle of prehistoric man, as well as being famous for its wines, truffles and fine wines. The site of all those prehistoric bones makes an interesting place for a modern skeleton to turn up - a pivotal event in the plot.

But what I always like most about the Bruno mysteries is watching Bruno interact with, and look out for, the citizens of St. Denis. Bruno is brilliantly effective at community policing. He never arrests anyone if he can help it. Rather, he promotes peaceful solutions to local conflicts. The locals are his friends. He drinks with them, hunts with them, and cooks them amazing dinners. His gun rarely leaves the office.

To appreciate this book fully, I think it would help to know the history of contemporary Europe, and Basque terrorism in particular. Which I don't. But there was enough action to keep me hooked - bombings, a kidnapping and a dramatic fight, in which not only Bruno, but his dog, his horse and his ex-lover shine.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 C'est Magnifique 20 juillet 2012
Par G. Peter Wityk - Publié sur Amazon.com
In the past two weeks I've read all 4 Bruno novels. And, I'm hungry for more. Please Mr. Walker, could I have more?

This is the story of a French municipal policeman, Benoit Correges known as Bruno, in the Commune of Saint Denis in the Perigord. Being the only municipal police man, he must be the Chief of Police. He is a gourmet cook, a rugger, a hunter, a diplomat, a lover, retired from the French Combat Engineers ( described as equivalent to the Seals ) and a splendid policeman. He views his job as maintaining order while protecting the life style and the people of his community. In the Crowded Grave, he has been seconded to the French Central Intelligence Bureau to help plan for a meeting of the French and Spanish Interior Ministers in Saint Denis. They will sign a new agreement to deal with issues related to Basque terrorism. Throw in a PETA attack on small farmers producing foie gras, a contemporary body found when archeologists are excavating a prehistoric grave, issues with Bruno's current lady, issues with one of Bruno's past ladies, fussing and feuding with the new judicial magistrate and almost a conflict with the officious and borderline competent Captain of Gendarmes and you can tell that Martin Walker has produced a tasty meal fit for a king! It's witty. It's humorous. It's serious. You feel the push and pull between the modern technocrats and the conservative French country people. You feel Bruno's and hence Walker's love of this land and its people.

I can not praise the writing too highly. The language and the cast of characters, eccentric and essentially gallic are delightful and produce a highly readable series. You really get a feel for the land, the people and their life. This series is a melange of Peter Mayle's A Year in Provence, a Julia Child cookbook and a mystery. You can see why the Germans, the English, the Aragonese, the Spanish, the Moslems, the Romans, the Helvetians and all the other people who wanted to conquer this land felt that way. It makes you feel that you have a second home in Saint Denis. It's a place to savor.

There is little to criticize. The plotting might be a little tighter. Bruno might have a few more problems in coming to a resolution of conflicts. But, those are minor quibbles. There is just too much to enjoy here that you can not pass it by. Stop. Take your time. Relax. Read. Have a tasty snack. You won't regret it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another Brilliant Book in the Bruno Series 19 août 2012
Par William Machrone - Publié sur Amazon.com
Detective/police serial novels are infamous for going soft or becoming repetitive, but the Bruno books keep getting better. If you're unfamiliar with them, Bruno Courrèges is the country policeman of St. Denis, in France's southern wine country. He finds ways to solve the squabbles in his jurisdiction that save face for all, even if it means skirting the letter of the law. Inevitably, a seemingly small thing becomes a big thing, and Bruno deftly protects the interests of St. Denis and is right in the action as the bad guys are brought to justice.

"The Crowded Grave" is perhaps the best so far, with crackling action and international intrigue that builds continually. Along the way, there's time for new and old girlfriends, battling bureaucratic idiocy, lots of shared meals, and superb wines. Characteristically, the sex scenes are handled in a modest sentence or two, while preparing and sharing a meal can go on for a couple of pages. That's fine with me; the emotions and affection behind both are honest and complete. I didn't want this book to end and I look forward eagerly to the next one.

I read international detective stories for the joy of discovering the subtleties of different cultures: what's important to them, how they perceive themselves and other countries. In the Bruno books, the culture of rural southern France is about as subtle as a barrel of Pomerol dropped on your foot. It informs every action by the locals and is the source of puzzlement, admiration, and frustration to outsiders. Martin Walker is having a torrid love affair with the countryside, and we are fortunate that he shares his intimate encounters with us through Bruno and the other characters.

If you have read and enjoyed the other Bruno books, you owe it to yourself to read this one. If you haven't, please start with the first and read them in order.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A Little Disappointed 26 juillet 2012
Par H. Potter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The charm of the Bruno novels is Bruno, his friends and lovers, and the area of France in which they live. There has to be a plot, too, of course, but in the other books these didn't interfere with the depiction of character and small town life. In this book, though, the main plot is too grandiose and gets in the way of things. There is a "surpise" villain revealed at the end, whose identity the astute reader can figure out half way through the book. And Bruno suffers a tragic loss which can also be predicted.

It's not a bad book, it's just not as good as the author's earlier works.

Chief Bruno, the supporting characters, the story, and the scenery make reading these books feel like mini-vacations in the Perigord. I am totally addicted, and love the world these novels create. However a particularly sad thing happened in this one (I won't give it away) that had me bawling like a baby, and longing for the next one. Between this series and Alan Bradley's Flavia De Luce novels, I find myself stalking Amazon to see how soon the next installment will be written and released.
