Death on Windmill Way. Never Mess with Mistletoe. One person found this helpful. Currently out of stock. I recommend it to anyone interested in food, France and the workings of the "Commissariat" Capucine's interrogation technique is also something wonderful to behold. This book was poorly written. He stayed thirty five years, eventually becoming a restaurant critic and progressing inevitably to gastronomic thrillers.

This time around, characters from previous books reappear for sentimental reasons; Capucine's restaurant-critic husband Alexandre is along for the ride to get restaurant reservations and do the cooking; her cousin Jacques of the French CIA a sort of tongue-in-cheek Mycroft character to Capucine's Sherlock Holmes does too much of the plot's heavy lifting, which is a lot of heavy lifting. Best to stick with the first four books in this series particularly numbers 3 and 4, both excellent and live in hope that Campion will come back to this series with more focus and inspiration. This isn't the police procedural you were expecting.
Cappucine Le Tellier accepts nothing at face value. Her food critic husband provides the separate thread: I love the way this tale starts as a telling of a simple cruise with friends and others.
The most innocent of all the boat's passengers, the hired help, proves the catalyst. Keep your eye on her as the clues, wound together like colored threads in a sewing basket, begin to unravel and lead to the real crime. The sleight of hand, the changing positions of the characters, the subtle shifts The atmosphere, crumbs of French language, and cuisine are as delectable as a vacation, adding to the nuanced delivery of the clues. Just like the food and the wine, I am found wanting more of this clever detective and her circle. And now there are none!
This amusing, yet curiously serious series of murder mysteries about a French plice woman married to a restaurant critic is a good introduction to the country's cuisine if you're on a serious diet and cannot afford a trip to Paris. Unfortunately, the so-called "Capucine Culinary" mysteries number only five I wish there were more.
I'm on a diet and ca't get to Paris but I've certainly enjoyed reading about the city and its fine restaurants and its seemy criminal element. I picked this book up thinking it would be a silly who done it. It turned out to be more than that. It was a fairly interesting mystery.
However, I was a little confused about the politics. The characters were well drawn and the travelogue was picturesque. I think the book stands alone, but a little more background may have added to the story. I'm not sure but is Capucine pregnant at the end? How does her cousin know?
