'WILL MAKE READERS LONG FOR LAZY DAYS IN RURAL FRANCE' Irish Independent Following the funeral of a local farmer, Bruno gets a phone call from his son. He tells Bruno that just before his father's sudden death, he had signed over his property to an insurance company in return for a subscription to a luxury retirement home. Bruno discovers that both the retirement home and the insurance company are scams with links to a Russian oligarch whose dealings are already being tracked by the French police. Meanwhile, an aging British rock star is selling his home, Chateau Rock. The star's son returns for the summer with his Russian girlfriend. As Bruno pursues his inquiries into the farmer's death and the stolen inheritance, he learns that the oligarch is none other than the girlfriend's father.
