Atmospheric, authentic, thrilling

Capitaine Roger Blanc investigates in the Camargue

August, the air over Provence shimmers in suffocating heat. Capitaine Roger Blanc and his col-league Marius Tonon are called to the Camargue. A black fighting bull has escaped from the pas-ture and has gored a cyclist on its horns. A bizarre accident, or so it initially seems. Until Blanc discovers evidence that someone left the gate open intentionally …

The deceased is Albert Cohen, political magazine reporter, fashion intellectual from Paris, TV personality. He was in the Camargue to write a major article on Vincent van Gogh. Yet what has that got to do with the attack? Whilst a cheerful building crew remove the old roof from his di-lapidated oil mill, but don’t find a new one, Blanc comes across Cohen’s incomplete report during his investigation, which is not quite as harmless as it initially appeared. And also a spectacular, never solved burglary on the Côte d'Azur, and an old, deadly story that everyone, absolutely eve-ryone wants to forget. By the end, Blanc feels a little more at home in his new surroundings in Provence. But he pays a high price for it.
