Another investment company has plans for the area around St. Denis. It's OK, Bruno is on the watch. What seems like a gift from Heaven begins to smell a bit of sulfur as one corpse after another are found in suspicious circumstances. Is there evidence of a Black Mass being performed, or is it a gimmicky way to bring in the tourists? Our chief of police is not amused.

I am still loving these stories, even though I'm very tired of the choices Bruno is making in his love life. ( )

When a young girl’s body is found floating in a boat near St. Denis, it appears to be a suicide in imitation of a satanic ritual. Bruno Courreges, our police chief hero, is on the case, trying to figure out where boat want into the water, who the girl is, and what might have precipitated her death.

Meanwhile, the mayor and council are considering yet another development plan, spearheaded by a shadowy group that dragged a nearby town into a similar plan, much to its regret. But the development could be great for Bruno’s rugby club and might just bring jobs into the area. The principals are attributing the earlier failure to the limits put on it by municipal government.

(SPOILER ALERT). Bruno is still grieving the death of his beloved dog Gigi (see The Crowded Grave), but enjoying his new horse Hector, a birthday gift from his ladyfriend Pamela and the townspeople. When his other lady love Isabelle brings him a new pup, Balzac, Bruno’s not certain he can find a place in his heart for the little guy.

The Devil’s Cave is another fine mystery from Martin Walker: an intriguing story, great characters and a near perfect protagonist in Bruno. ( )

Diogenes: In Martin Walkers fünftem Bruno -Roman geht es um Wasser: um glasklare, gemütliche Flüsse im Périgord, auf denen statt Kanufahrern eine schöne nackte (leider tote) Frau mit einem satanistischen Tattoo heruntertreibt. Um undurchsichtige Finanzflüsse. Um ein Labyrinth prähistorischer Grotten und ein internationales Ferienresort an lauschigen Ufern. Es geht um Fischspezialitäten, mit denen Bruno in verwirrenden Frühlingsgefühlen gefangen die Frauen verführt, und um große Fische einer Rüstungslobby, die ihm fast wieder von der Angel springen. Und schließlich um Teufelsweiber, die seit Ludwigs XIV. Mätresse Madame de Montespan die französischen Staats- und Finanzgeschäfte zu lenken versuchen.

Solider Bruno-Krimi. Trotz Höhlen-Finale nicht richtig spannende bis zum Schluss. Zu viele Figuren verwirren teilweise, man kennt sich zwischen den ganzen Gilles und Jules, Beatrice und Eugenie nicht mehr ganz aus. Bruno ist ganz der alte, mit den bekannten Ticks und Liebesproblemen, soweit nichts Neues im Périgord, auch esstechnisch das Übliche. Aber als Unterhaltung ganz brauchbar. ( )

An excellent addition to the Bruno series. Fast paced ending with the usual cast of characters. Once again the joy of visiting the Dordogne and enjoying Bruno's cooking. Visiting St Denis is comfort food. ( )
