I read MacLean's books years ago and was awed by his writing skill. I read this one again recently and still find it wonderfully exciting. The French countryside, Gypsy environment is exotic and the plot twist at the end is a surprise. The action never stops!

Midnight Louie and Temple Barr are a great pair! This series is fast moving and full of action. Louie narrates his own chapters and is very educated (for a cat). Temple is always getting into troubling situations and Louie often comes to her rescue. The peripheral characters are all fun and believable.

J P Beaumont and Brandon Walker join forces to solve a cold case with links to recent smuggling and kidnapping. Lots of Native American lore and details add to the action. It has a kind of Hillerman-kind of flavor. Also includes a short story that is actually a prequel to the main book. I recommend reading the short story first.

Vicky Bliss and her entourage are a hoot. Love the historical aspects of Ms Peters' mysteries. Vicky has all the spunk of Amelia Peabody.

The whole family loved the Travis McGee books back in the day. Travis is a strong protagonist with a lovable sidekick, both living on boats along the Florida coast. Travis always loves the ladies and gets into some heavy trouble every time. He's awesome!

Excellent book! The sport details are well researched. The plot is good and the mystery was preserved till the end (at least for me) ;-)
