    Neophyte author crafts a good whodunit!

    What a backdrop for murder - the Cote d'azur and the Tour De France! First-time novelist D'Arcy Kavanagh has penned a real page turner that keeps the reader guessing right to the end. Former elite cyclist and disgraced race analyst, Paul Burke, has taken self-imposed sanctuary in a quaint French village just a stones throw from the Mediterranean Sea to recover from his pro-cycling career retirement and some ill considered remarks made on national television. He has immersed himself into the local community and has been befriended by the local café owner who also happens to be a staunch environmentalist opposed to over development in an around his village. Burke is shaken out of his self-pity by the death of an acquaintance, a real bastard, during a stage of the Tour de France which is passing through nearby Nice. Naturally curious, Burke stumbles across information that not only lands him in hot water with the local Gendarmes but fearing for his own life and that of a new and promising love interest. While creating a blog author and erstwhile detective out of Burke, Kavanagh conveys the charm of Provençal people, places and epicurean delights. The author obviously knows well and describes the geography in which the murders take place and the challenges imposed on the local way of life by unbridled urban development and accompanying population growth. Tension grows throughout the novel which is hard to put down. I can't wait for another Paul Burke mystery!
