John Bright is a hardworking London detective who believes vacations are a waste of time. But when he and his girlfriend, Jude, begin getting death threats, Bright decides that perhaps a quick trip abroad might be manageable after all. He is beginning to enjoy the food, wine, and sunshine in the south of France when a young woman's body turns up at their hotel. Not only that, but the French police are convinced Bright is the killer. His options appear limited: he speaks no French, and the legal system does not consider him innocent until proven guilty. O'Brien has constructed an intricate plot that will keep readers guessing. She deftly portrays the atmosphere of a small French village, which is picturesque but sinister. A nice mix of cozy and procedural. Barbara Bibel
