The second in the Inspector Truchaud series finds the diffident policeman unravelling yet another mystery in the little Burgundy village of Nuits-Saint-Georges. A young German tourist seems to have gone missing. But what at first appears quite a straightforward affair soon turns dark when a decomposing body is found in the woods.

Another episode of murder, mayhem, violence and villainy in the orderly vineyards of Burgundy.

Praise for ‘The Charlemagne Connection’:

“Like the vineyards of Nuits-Saint-Georges, Cartmel is in fine form as he once again teams up with France’s laconic and witty crime solver. Red herrings and shocks galore, interspersed with villainy, violence and vinification make The Charlemagne Connection a compulsive and highly satisfying intelligent read.” Sam Millar, New York Review of Books
