Bruno, chief of police in the French town of St. Denis, is already busy with a case when the body of an undercover French Muslim cop is found in the woods, a man who called Bruno for help only hours earlier. But Bruno's sometime boss and rival, the Brigadier, doesn't see this investigation as a priority--there are bigger issues at stake. Bruno has other ideas. Meanwhile, a Muslim youth named Sami turns up at a French army base in Afghanistan hoping to get home to St. Denis. One of Bruno's old army comrades helps to smuggle Sami back to France, but the FBI aren't far behind. Then an American woman appears in St. Denis with a warrant for Sami's extradition. Bruno must unravel these multiple mysteries, amidst pressure from his bosses, and find his own way to protect his town and its people.

Note there is an alternative title as this same book is also on the shelves as "Children of War"

I'm a fan of this type of writing. Bruno is a detective character I warm too, such a shame he meets with so much violence in his day to day life in a tiny French town. Like other readers, I particularly like the descriptions of food, eating, wine, locals people and the landscape. I'm reading this for the 2nd time, only because this is an American edition hardback and I didn't realise I had read it before. Lovely lovely hardback book with such taken in the production and design of the book - you can't feel the pages of an e-book

I picked this from the shelves with little expectation. Once home I was pleasantly surprised by this well rounded book's character development and the story unfolded under the artist's hand

This is another great story for Bruno fans. The blend of intrigue, romance, food, and wine in rural southwest France makes for enjoyable escape from the routine of midwestern America.

Bruno as James Bond is getting a bit tiresome, it would be nice if Mr. Walker returned to the original premise.

Another great entry in the BRUNO, CHIEF OF POLICE series -- though certainly much darker and lighter on local color than the first entries in the series. Ends on a most curious note that makes me look forward to the next book!
