Murder on Brittany Shores

"Bannalec's riveting sequel to 2015's DEATH IN BRITTANY takes Commissaire Georges Dupin from Concarneau, a town on the Brittany coast, to the Glénan Islands 10 miles offshore.
Commentary on such subjects as tourism, ecology, and commercial development enhance the complex plot, as do vivid descriptions of the terrain. The final twist leaves readers wondering how justice is best served." - Publisher's Weekly

"Like his debut (Death in Brittany, 2015), the hero's second adventure is judicious in parceling out attention to character, setting, and, most of all, plot." - Kirkus
