Deadly Tasting by Jean-Pierre Alaux and Noel Balen
Another Benjamin Cooker mystery. This time Benjamin is called to a murder scene by the police inspector Barbaroux. The victim is an elderly gentleman who was horribly murdered and a circle of twelve wine glasses with one full and the others empty, with each murder another glass is filled with wine. Benjamin has little patience with the inspector as his wife has put him on a diet, he is quite abrupt with the inspector to get on with it. This is another fine translation and well written story. I can't wait to read the next installment. ***I received this book in exchange for an honest review***.
