Georges Moutte, the chair of the theology department at the University d’Aix, who was about to retire. Fans of European sleuths with a taste for good food such as Martin Walker’s Bruno (Bruno, Chief of Police) will have fun.

I probably should read one in original English to see whether the writing is better in the original, although somehow I doubt it. Moord in Rue Dumas’ is geen verkeerd verhaal en leest ook fijner weg dan het eerste deel ‘Dood op kasteel Brémont’. If you’d like an intriguing mystery story peopled with unique characters, enhanced with descriptions of mouth watering edibles and lush pictures of the Italian and French country side Murder in the Rue Dumas is the book for you. Given that the plot revolves around a French university theology department, Longworth could have consulted at least one genuine syllabus to work out the subjects covered and who might be teaching or studying them.

Sometimes it is hard to figure out where his rudeness comes from, but the reader gets more and more hints of childhood issues and promises from him that an explanation to Marine is forthcoming. A promising debut for Longworth, who shows there's more to France than Paris and more to mystery than Maigret. Murder in the Rue Dumas" is more on the cozy end of the genre, but what a delightful place it holds. Due to a review by another reader here on goodreads, I took a chance on checking out several books by Longworth from this series.

And being a French intellectual snob, why are all the Judge's literary heroes and touchstones English or American?

Ik las een tijdje geleden al ‘Dood op kasteel Brémont‘ van haar hand en had hier nogal wat op- en aanmerkingen op. This is a great second installment of this series and I am enjoying the character development and the continued exploration of Aix. With Marine's help - and that of her plucky mother - Verlaque uncovers a world that proves more complicated than university politics. First Sentence: The friendship between Yann Falquerho and Thierry Marchive had surprised everyone at the university.

Another tedious repetition was the author showing off her knowledge of Aix, providing detailed steet-by-street, turn-by-turn routes various people walk through the city (sometimes including non-existent street names for no apparent reason). The author obviously knows France but she seems incapable of putting that knowledge to use, to make the characters sound French, apart from a guided tour of the streets of Aix-en-Provence. A page-turning mysterythat transports you to the south of France with its lush portrait of a charming historic town, this continuation of theProven al Mystery series captivates.It's so nice once I have all the challenge-reading out of the way--I can give in to impulse reading and just bring home books that look interesting. It has a j'ai ne sais quoi quality that doesn't quite meet my expectations for a novel set in France. Almost all our characters are French (apart from the handful of Italians) and are deemed to be speaking French to each other despite the text being written in English, a long-standing convention in writing fiction in a language other than that of the characters. This book is halfway between a mystery and a romance novel, and I'm not sure whether that's a good thing. Will Judge Antoine Verlaque, his on again/off again lady friend law professor Marine Bonnet and Commissioner Bruno Paulik of the Aix police unravel these mysteries?
