Commissaire Dupin is back in The Fleur de Sel Murders, this Brittany mystery from international bestselling author Jean-Luc Bannalec. The old salt farmers have always said that the violet scent of the Fleur de Sel at harvest time on the salt marshes of the Guérande Peninsula has been known to cause hallucinations. Commissaire Dupin also starts to believe this when he’s attacked out of the blue in the salt works. He had actually been looking forward to escaping his endless paperwork and taking a trip to the “white country” between the raging Atlantic Ocean and idyllic rivers. But when he starts snooping around mysterious barrels on behalf of Lilou Breval, a journalist friend, he finds himself unexpectedly under attack. The offender remains a mystery, and a short time later, Breval disappears without a trace. It is thanks to his secretary Nolwenn and the ambition of the prefect that Dupin is assigned to the case. But he won’t be working alone because Sylvaine Rose is the investigator responsible for the department—and she lives up to her name... What’s going on in the salt works? Dupin and Rose search feverishly for clues and stumble upon false alibis, massive conflicts of interest, personal feuds—and ancient Breton legends.

The Killing Tide by Jean-Luc Bannalec is the fifth novel in the internationally bestselling Commissaire Dupin series. Deep sea fishers, dolphin researchers, smugglers, and an island shrouded in myth in the middle of the rough Atlantic ocean: Commissaire Dupin had sworn he would never again investigate on the ocean, but his fifth case takes him offshore, off the west coast of Brittany on a beautifully sunny day in June. He lands on the unique Île de Sein, populated by more rabbits than people, where the hairdresser arrives by boat and which was formerly inhabited by powerful witches and even the devil himself. In front of this impressive backdrop—between the islands of Molène, Ouessant, and the bay of Douarnenez—Dupin and his team follow a puzzling case that pushes them to their very limits.

French Gold is a tale of murder and its solving, of life in the colonial village of Ste. Anne in the Illinois country, of buried treasure and its eventual unearthing. It is of a keelboat voyage from St. Louis to New Orleans and of the tender star-crossed love shared by the French woman Julie Coussat and young Auguste Chouteau along the way. Their journey is full of action - first an encounter with river pirates, then savage Indians, and finally a brutal attack upon Julie by supposed friends. This story tells of the present-day rebuilding of a wall at historic Fort de Chartres and how it came about. Fast paced, its action shifts back and forth and back again between Springfield, Illinois in the 1980s, the French Illinois country of 1764 and life on the river, and Paris in the bloody days of the French Revolution. Local historians demanded historical accuracy in the rebuilding of the wall at Fort de Chartres. It seemed necessary for research to be done in France and Spain. A professor of French language and literature was employed to conduct that inquiry while he was in Europe on a sabbatical leave. His findings in Seville and Paris led to the solution of an ancient murder, to the recovery of a long buried treasure in gold and silver from the bluffs along the Mississippi, and to the account written long ago by the French woman, Julie Coussat, of her time upon the river. Essentially, this a romantic tale of how a strong-willed woman was caused to become the binding link between past and present, and the means of our recreating a bit of the past
