Monica Felder is nowhere to be found, and her husband, a retired British major, is unreachable. And not long after Bruno discovers that Monica was traveling with a mysterious Irishman (her lover?), the two turn up dead. The Irishman's background in intelligence and his connection to Monica's husband only raise more questions for Bruno. Was she running away? How much does her husband really know? What's the real story behind a scandal buried in the threesome's military past? Meanwhile, the star of the girls' rugby team, a favorite of Bruno's, is pregnant, putting at risk her chances of being named to the French national squad. Bruno's search for the truth in both cases leads him to places he hadn't intended to go--but, as ever, he and his friends take time to savor the natural delights of the Dordogne.<i> Santé</i>!

His friend wasn’t just a connoisseur of French delicacies, he was a former high-profile intelligence agent—and someone wanted him dead.<br /><br />As the strange crimes continue, Bruno’s detective work takes him from sunlit markets to dim cafés, from luxurious feasts to tense negotiations—from all of the paradisial pleasures of the region to its shadowy underworld—and reunites him with a lost love, an ambitious policewoman also assigned to the case. Filled with an abundance of food and wine (including, <i>bien sûr,</i> many, many truffles) and a <i>soupçon</i> of romance, <i>Black Diamond</i> is a deliciously entertaining concoction that delivers all the complexity and delights of the Dordogne itself.<br /><br /><b>Bonus material!&#xa0;</b>Martin Walker is often asked by his readers for vacation recommendations in the area where his best-selling series is set.

15 The Caves of Perigord

Author : Martin Walker
Genre :  Historical  Books  Fiction & Literature 
Price :  $15.99
Release Date :  2002-04-10
Description :  In a brilliant and ambitious thriller that combines elements of Jean Auel's <i>The Clan of the Cave Bear</i> and Ken Follett's <i>The Pillars of the Earth</i> into a riveting, multifaceted tale of love, art, courage, and war, Martin Walker brings to life the creation of an extraordinary work of prehistoric cave art and the struggle to possess it in our own time. <br /> Walker's richly interwoven novel opens with the arrival of a mysterious package for a young American woman working in a London auction house. Brought by a British officer, it contains a 17,000-year-old fragment of a cave painting left to him by his father, a former World War II hero. <br /> The fragment, significant and stunning in itself, is also the key to the existence of an un-known cave that may be more important in the history of art and human creation than the world-famous one at Lascaux. It triggers a storm of publicity and commands the attention of the French authorities all the way up to the President of the Republic, who seems to know more about the painting's origins than anyone else... <br /> As the young American woman, the British officer, and a French government art historian explore the ancient province of Périgord to determine the painting's origins, their search serves as backdrop for three compelling stories. There is the tale of the British officer's father who lands in Nazi-occupied France in 1944 to organize the Resistance, culminating in a series of battles to prevent the SS Das Reich Panzer Division from reaching the Normandy beaches in time to repel the D-Day invasion, which leads to an account of the subsequent discovery -- and cover-up -- of the lost cave and its paintings. And there is also the moving story of the young artist who painted them, the woman he loved, and the ancient culture that produced the first recognizable human art but required the sacrifice of its own creators. <br /> Filled with vivid, historically accurate details and imaginative re-creations of prehistoric life, <i>The Caves of Périgord</i> blends a complex plot and richly diverse characters into a seamless narrative of romance, tragedy, and heroism from past to present.

Release Date :  2000-05-16
Description :  Here is the story of America in the twentieth century as told through the lives of twenty-six of its most remarkable and historically crucial men and women.<br /><br />The people Martin Walker has chosen to portray are presidents, industrialists, artists, thinkers, entertainers, soldiers, spies, criminals, and evangelists, among others, and he makes the life of each individual serve as a framework for a discussion of the nation as a whole in a century when it was reinventing itself.<br /><br />Through Theodore Roosevelt, Walker examines America's ambition; through Woodrow Wilson, our idealism; through FDR, our triumph on the world stage; through Richard Nixon, our retreat into cynicism; through Bill Clinton, globalization and controversy about the right way to use America's unprecedented power.<br /><br />In Henry Ford he finds the creator of both the mass-market product and the mass-market consumer, and in Walt Disney, the revolutionizer not only of America's entertainment but also of the world's. William Boeing is the innovator who spurs the behemoth of American aviation; Walter Reuther defines labor's struggles; George C. Marshall represents the spread of America's economic genius in a war-ravaged Europe.<br /><br />In the lives of Duke Ellington, Frank Lloyd Wright, Katharine Hepburn, and John Steinbeck, Walker traces America's far-reaching cultural influences. Babe Ruth leads to a consideration of the role of sports in our society; William F. Buckley, Jr., to a discussion of conservatism; Martin Luther King, Jr., to matters of race; Betty Friedan to the shifting role of women; Billy Graham to an examination of religion; Emma Goldman to minority viewpoints and dissent; Black Jack Pershing to the place of the military; Lucky Luciano to crime and corruption; Albert Einstein to immigration; Richard Bissell to spies and the intelligence network; Alan Greenspan to finance and banking; and Winston Churchill to the American diaspora.<br /><br />At once intimate and wide-ranging, <b>America Reborn</b> is an altogether engrossing work of narrative history.<br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

Description :  Bruno Courrèges, chef de la police municipale, est réveillé au milieu de la nuit : un incendie s’est déclaré dans un champ de céréales génétiquement modifiées. L’enquête s’oriente aussitôt vers le milieu militant écologiste. Mais cet acte criminel n’est que le premier signe d’une série d’incidents qui vont émailler la petite vie paisible de Saint-Denis en Dordogne. Des viticulteurs étrangers arrivent dans la région pour faire main basse sur les sols fertiles du village. Or en matière de vin, St Denis compte déjà pas mal de rivaux : Max qui veut s’essayer au vin biologique, Jacqueline la trop séduisante Québécoise récemment installée dans le coin et Fernando, l’héritier d’un domaine prestigieux qui fait beaucoup d’envieux. Entre méthode traditionnelle, vin biologique et respect du terroir, c’est une véritable guerre du goût qui s’engage. Et ce ne sont pas les deux morts mystérieuses qui vont ramener le calme dans cette région paradisiaque…<br /><br /><i>Traduit de l’anglais par Gabrielle Merchez</i>

Description :  È piena estate in Périgord, nel Sud della Francia, e il villaggio di Saint-Denis è in fermento: a breve avrà inizio il Concours de Élégance, un raduno di auto d’epoca che sta facendo confluire in zona da ogni angolo del paese collezionisti e appassionati. Molte splendide vetture sono pronte a sfidarsi tra le colline coltivate a vigne per cui la regione è famosa, ma nessuna può competere con la Bugatti Type 57 Atlantic, considerata la macchina più bella e più costosa al mondo, prodotta in soli quattro esemplari. Uno è esposto in un museo della California, che ha pagato ben 37 milioni di dollari per averla. Un altro fa parte della collezione privata di Ralph Lauren. Un terzo è andato distrutto, e l’ultimo è scomparso alla fine della Seconda guerra mondiale proprio vicino a Saint-Denis. Alle sorti di questa misteriosa quarta automobile sono interessati in particolar modo Sylvestre Wémy e George Young, due piloti del raduno. Ma il commissario Bruno Courrèges, capo della polizia locale, è occupato da altri pensieri: un anziano studioso è morto, probabilmente non per cause naturali. E, poco dopo il ritrovamento di un secondo cadavere, la pacifica Saint-Denis sembra essere piombata nel bel mezzo di un’indagine internazionale sul riciclaggio di denaro sporco. A complicare le cose ci si mettono una lite familiare e alcune faccende di cuore, ma Bruno troverà il filo con cui cucire insieme queste vicende apparentemente distanti per dare risposta a ogni mistero.
