    1. Closer to 2.5 Adrian Magson writes a good story but the plot in this book was far fetched with no real depth to any of the characters Although it starts off quite well it became implausible with each chapter Many readers enjoyed this book with five star ratings, however, I couldn t quite buy into the whole scenario Having read Magson s books before and enjoyed his style, I will definitely read by this author but unfortunately found this one disappointing.

    2. This is a very accomplished Crime Thriller by the excellent writer Adrian Magson His character Inspector Lucas Rocco now in his fourth outing is a growing name in crime fiction Magson flits between writing these police procedurals set in 1960 s France and a series of modern day spy thrillers This is by far the best Rocco book to date the detective is comfortable in his rural surroundngs having been transfered in the first episode from Paris The writing is action thriller centred as political in [...]

    3. I am so glad I found this series, it is one of the best I ve read this year For those of you that have read Martin Walkers books about Bruno chief of police you have to try this.I find that I am hooked on smalltown police and detective series.Regardless of where in the world or what time period it is set.This series is set in a rural France in political turmoil during the early sixties, very interesting.Just as facinating as Reavis Z Worthams RedRiver mystery set in rural Texas in the same perio [...]

    4. It was with great anticipation I returned to Picardie and the delightful company of Inspector Lucas Rocco, and Magson did not disappoint me This is the fourth book in the series and he has settled into a comfortable groove balancing tense, atmospheric crime thriller plotting, careful characterisation, police procedure, politics, social comment and dry humour I particularly enjoy the way Magson shows the rural way of life in early 60s France and the obvious affection in his portrayal of various l [...]

    5. A good procedural police tale With a mild French flavour Not a huge amount of local colour but some And some idea of the hierarchy of the different police forces.

    6. I have been enjoying this series Set in France, we have the Parisian flic, Inspector Lucas Rocco, who has moved to the rural wilderness of Picardie He has gradually become accustomed to the rural crims and made a few friends Now it is 1964 and there is a very nasty murder at the exclusive and mysterious Spa St Jean des Eaux.The trouble is that the ministry seem to be in charge and that seems to mean covering things up Rocco has landed himself in the midst of a nasty and dangerous conspiracy and [...]

    7. Another great mystery featuring Inspector Lucas Rocco, who, despite being stationed in a rural French setting, always seems to find himself involved with crimes which affect France at a national level This book begins with the drowning of a man in the pool of a sanatorium which houses unidentified patients and the staff includes an armed guard When Rocco tries to investigate he is warned off by senior French security officials but that doesn t stop him A real page turner and a worthy addition to [...]
