Overview
The second delightful Verlaque and Bonnet mystery when a shocking murder rocks the theology department atAix-en-Provence s university, chief magistrate Antoine Verlaque is on the case

The next bookin the Verlaque & Bonnet Provencal Mystery series, The Curse of La Fontaine, will be available from Penguin in April 2017
When Dr. Georges Moutte is found mudrered, investigator Antoine Verlaque is stumped. Certainly the director of theology at the Universite d Aix had his enemies. Moutte was just about to name the recipient of an elite fellowship as well as his own successor a highly coveted position when his lips were sealed permanently. But Verlaque isn't convinced that anyone in the tiny community of academics is capable of murder.
Aided by his on-again, off-again girlfriend, law professor Marine Bonnet, Berlaque must turn Provence upside down, uncovering a world far more complicated than university politics, to find the killer before it s too late.
A page-turning mysterythat transports you to the south of France with its lush portrait of a charming seaside town, this continuation of the Verlaque and Bonnet series captivates.
What really makes Longworth s writing special is her deep knowledge of French history, landscape, cuisine, and even contemporary cafes and restaurants. This is that rare atmospheric mystery that is street-wise and cafe-canny. Booklist(starred review)"

Longworth’s entertaining second mystery set in Aix-en-Provence (after 2011’s Death at the Château Bremont) plunges magistrate Antoine Verlaque and his law professor girlfriend, Marine Bonnet, into the world of academe following a murder. Someone has battered in the head of Dr. Georges Moutte, the chair of the theology department at the University d’Aix, who was about to retire. The body was found by two students who broke into Moutte’s office to learn if either of them had won a prestigious fellowship, but who left the scene without reporting the murder in order to conceal their own breaking and entering. Apart from probing the rivalries among the university’s faculty, Verlaque also looks into the possibility that the killer was an art thief. Fans of European sleuths with a taste for good food such as Martin Walker’s Bruno (Bruno, Chief of Police) will have fun. Agent: Katherine Fausset, Curtis Brown. (Oct.)
