International Dagger Award shortlisted author Cay Rademacher delivers a captivating follow-up to his atmosphericMurderous Mistral withDeadly Camargue.

August: the air over Provence shimmers in suffocating heat.Capitaine Roger Blanc and his colleague Marius Tonon are called to the Camargue. A black fighting bull has escaped from the pasture and has gored a cyclist. A bizarre accident, or so it initially seems. Until Blanc discovers evidence that someone left the gate open intentionally…

The deceased is Albert Cohen, political magazine reporter, fashion intellectual from Paris, TV personality. He was in the Camargue to write a major article on Vincent van Gogh. Yet what has that got to do with the attack? Blanc comes across Cohen’s incomplete report during his investigation, which is not quite as harmless as it initially appeared. And also a spectacular, never solved burglary on theCôte d'Azur, and an old, deadly story that absolutely everyone wants to forget. By the end, Blanc feels a little more at home in his new surroundings in Provence. But he pays a high price for it.

CAY RADEMACHER studied Anglo-American history, ancient history, and philosophy in Cologne and Washington. He has been an editor atGeo magazine since 1999, and was instrumental in setting up the renowned history magazineGeo-Epoche. His first novel,The Murderer in Ruins, was shortlisted for the CWA International Dagger award. He is also the author ofMurderous Mistral and lives in France with his wife and children.

"Rademacher’s vivid descriptions of the landscape, the pleasures of French food, and the history of van Gogh’s time in the south add to the story’s appeal. Armchair travelers will be rewarded."—Publishers Weekly

"Ably capturing this region of France, Cay Rademacher has crafted a curious mystery set in an unusual world. Blanc's nuanced character, and those of his fellow officers keepDeadly Camargue fresh. The van Gogh element is a delightful twist on a typical mystery, sure to make this one appeal to mystery lovers and art aficionados alike."—Shelf Awareness
