by M. L. Longworth




Overview -
"Beguiling . . . Longworth evokes the pleasures of France in delicious detail--great wine, delicious meals, and fine company." --Publishers Weekly

When a scandalous author moves to the outskirts of Aix-en-Provence, Verlaque and Bonnet are called in to investigate whether he's haunted by more than just his past, in this delightful new mystery from M. L. Longworth

Proven al Mystery Series #7

One hot summer night, Aix-en-Provence is aflutter with news that controversial author Val re Barbier, who once shared dinners with French presidents and all-night drinking bouts with rock stars, has moved into La Bastide Blanche, a grand house left empty for decades. But Val re's ideas of a peaceful retirement are quickly dashed. Rambunctious neighborhood children, a fast-talking gossip of a housekeeper, and a rival novelist filter through the home at all hours of the day--and by night there are unseen visitors with more sinister intentions.

Is Val re imagining the ethereal cries that fill the bastide at night? Is he losing his mind? Or have these ghosts returned from Val re's checkered past to haunt him?
