Martin Walker - The Patriarch: A Bruno, Chief of Police Novel

Saturday, September 19, 2015 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm

In his eighth mystery featuring Benoît “Bruno” Courrèges, Walker, senior fellow of the Global Business Policy Council and former UPI foreign affairs columnist and editor in chief, infuses the sunny ambience of St. Denis with history and international intrigue. The eponymous patriarch is Jean-Marc Desaix, a World War II hero honored by both de Gaulle and Stalin; when Courrèges attends a party at his estate, the fun is cut short with a tragic accident. But—was it an accident? Looking more closely at his host’s family, Bruno finds rivalries, tensions, and evidence of possible espionage—too much to chalk up to “accident.”
