Details: Product Description In the heat of a French summer, Captain Paul Darac of the Nice Brigade Criminelle is called to a highly sensitive crime scene. A man has been murdered in the midst of a prayer group, but no one saw how it was done. And the more Darac and his team learn about the victim, the longer their list of suspects grows. Darac’s hunt for the murderer will uncover vengeance years in the making, and put the life of one of his own at risk… Review "A sprawling, ambitious series debut especially noteworthy for its attention to minor characters, its mix of byways and felonies, and its determination to throw every crime in the book at the Brigade Criminelle—except, presumably, the ones reserved for the sequels." - Kirkus Reviews "Morfoot introduces a delightful example of the disenchanted French boulevardier" - Library Journal - Starred Review / Pick of the Month "...breezy, entertaining crime novel features more fascinating police work than thrills, but it’s an auspicious debut." - Publishers Weekly "procedural detail is impressive...the author’s portrait of Nice will delight fans of international crime; and his musings on the connection between jazz improvisation and detection will please music lovers." - Booklist “Morfoot brings alive the Nice of intrigue and glamour, the soft light of Provencal evenings, and the seamy bouillabaisse of urban crime… A deeply satisfying feast” - Jim Kelly, award-winning author of The Water Clock “Great plot, appealing hero, glorious setting plus taut writing – a real winner” - Martin Walker, bestselling author of the  Bruno Courrèges novels “A gripping, complex and fluently told story with a compelling sense of place and a troupe of well-formed and utterly believable characters” - Alison Joseph, author of the  Sister Agnes mysteries “If you are tired of bleak and dreary detective novels, pick this one up for a vibrant, satisfying read.” - The Crime Review "I was genuinely impressed by Peter Morfoot's Impure Blood and its entertainment values. If you're in need of good and well written mystery fiction, please invest a bit of time into reading this novel." - Rising Shadow About the Author Peter Morfoot has written a number of plays and sketch shows for BBC radio and TV and is the author of the acclaimed satirical novel,  Burksey.
