Richard is a middle-aged Englishman who runs a B&B in the fictional Val de Follet in the Loire Valley. Nothing ever happens to Richard, and really that's the way he likes it.

One day, however, one of his older guests disappears, leaving behind a bloody handprint on the wallpaper. Another guest, the exotic Valérie, persuades a reluctant Richard to join her in investigating the disappearance.

Richard remains a dazed passenger in the case until things become really serious and someone murders Ava Gardner, one of his beloved hens... and you don't mess with a fellow's hens!


This was a fun little read. I found myself laughing out loud more than once at the antics in this book. After finding a bloody handprint outside one of the bathrooms at his B & B Richard gets sucked into finding the "body" by one of his guests. 

Richard finds himself not sure of his feelings for the eccentric woman he is helping and finds himself in some interesting situations with his neighbors and their habit of not wearing clothes outside. 
After a while Richard is finding that he rather likes this quest and finds himself feeling alive in a way he hasn't in a long time. There are a ton of eccentric characters and witty dialogue.
