Summary
  • Captain Bruno Courreges goes by the grand title of Chief of Police, though in truth he's the only municipal policeman on staff in the small town of St Denis in the beautiful Perigord region of south west France. . When an old man, head of an immigrant North African family, is found viciously murdered - a swastika carved in his chest - the obvious conclusion is that this ritualistic killing must be racist, and that Le Front National is alive and well in the Dordogne
  • Suspicion falls on the son of the local doctor, found in flagrante playing sex games surrounded by Nazi paraphernalia. But Bruno isn't convinced, and suspects this unusual crime may have its roots in that most tortured period of recent French history - the Second World War. A time of terror and betrayal that set brother against brother, it casts a very long shadow

Summary
Captain Bruno Courreges goes by the grand title of Chief of Police, though in truth he's the only municipal policeman on staff, in the small town of St Denis. He has a gun, but never wears it. He has the power to arrest but never uses it. But that might be about to change. When the body of an old man, head of an immigrant North African family, is found in his home, eviscerated, the conclusion is that this killing must be racist. But Bruno isn't convinced and suspects this unusual crime may have its roots in a tortured period of recent French history.
