Martin Walker - The Body in the Castle Well

Upcoming Event
Monday, June 10, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In his latest case, Bruno Courrèges, the charismatic chief of police in St. Denis, France, is called in to discover if the death of a young American student was accidental or of it was related to what she’d learned about her mentor. The wealthy Monsieur de Bourdeille made his fortune through the sale of paintings, and evidence is surfacing that they were misattributed. Bruno’s investigation leads him in several seemingly unrelated directions, from Bourdeille’s activities during the German occupation—which included his arrest by a Vichy policeman, who also becomes of interest—to those of a falconer who works at the former home of Josephine Baker. Walker, senior fellow of the Global Business Policy Council, former editor in chief at United Press International, and part-time resident of Dordogne, tells a story rich in suspense, history, and uniquely French ambience.
