Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What could be better than a trip to Peter Mayle country — the thyme- and lavender-scented south of France, where Mayle has set his irresistible new tale of Cote d'Azur capers, hanky panky in Provence, and big truffle trouble?

His hero is Bennett, a suave if slightly threadbare English expat who is fast approaching the end of his credit and sorely testing the good will of the merchants in his Provencal village. In desperation, he places an ad in The International Herald Tribune: "Unattached Englishman...seeks interesting and unusual work. Anything considered except marriage".

Synopsis:

Peter Mayle sets his latest irresistible tale in the thyme- and lavender-scented south of France. Bennett, a suave if slightly threadbare English ex-patriot who is fast approaching the end of his credit, advertises his "services" in The International Herald Tribune. In no time, he is being paid handsomely to impersonate the mysterious and very wealthy Julian Poe.

"A lark that's perfect for summer reading."  --Baltimore Sun.

About the Author

Peter Mayle spent fifteen years in the advertising business, first as a copywriter and then as a reluctant executive, before escaping Madison Avenue in 1975 to write educational books for children.  In 1990, Mr. Mayle published A Year in Provence, which became an international bestseller.  He is also the author of Toujours Provence, Hotel Pastis, A Dog's Life, Encore Provence and Chasing Cezanne.  In addition to writing books which have been translated into more than twenty languages, Mayle has contributed to the Sunday Times, Financial Times, Independent, GQ and Esquire.  He and his wife and two dogs live in the South of France.
