Death at the Chateau Bremont by M.L. Longworth
Penguin Mystery Original / On Sale: June 28, 2011
“Longworth’s voice is like a rich vintage of sparkling Dorothy Sayers and grounded Donna Leon. The mix of aristocratic mystery and guide to Provencal wines, foods, habits, and Aix itself is a delight, and the old-fashioned plot line, with actual clues planted for the reader, offers a refreshing return to
Golden Age values.”
Set in charming and historic Aix-en-Provence, France, Death at the Chateau Bremont: A Verlaque and Bonnet Mystery by M. L. Longworth is the first mystery in a series featuring Antoine Verlaque, a handsome and seductive chief magistrate of Aix, and his ex-girlfriend, law professor Marine Bonnet.
M.L. Longworth has lived in Aix-en-Provence since 1997. She is the author of a bilingual collection of essays, Une Américaine en Provence published by La Martinière in 2004. She divides her time between Aix and Paris, where she teaches writing at NYU’s Paris campus.
