In this mouthwatering adventure of culinary intrigue, chic Parisian Commissaire Capucine Le Tellier sets off on a hunting holiday that proves deadly for more than just the pheasants…
It’s meant to be a peaceful trip to the countrysid--rustic picnics, dinners en plein air, and of course, a sip or two of Calvados. But even before Capucine and her husband, distinguished food critic Alexandre de Huguelet, arrive at her oncle’s 16th-century château, their idyllic destination has been thrown into turmoil by a fatal hunting accident. And the longer they stay, the more “accidents” happen.
That these shootings are not accidental seems obvious. But the local gendarmerie prove either too unwilling or too incompetent to draw any other conclusion, leaving Capucine to puzzle out the crimes herself. And when the bodies lead to a celebrated cattle ranch, the stakes rise beyond small-town grudges to the struggle surrounding France’s most beloved gastronomic traditions.
Moving between the heady thrills of the City of Light and the stunning vistas of Normandy, Crime Fraiche is as tantalizing as a plate of charcuterie and Camembert, and as impossible to resist.
