"It's summer in the Dordogne. The heirs of a P©♭rigordian sheep farmer learn that they have been disinherited, and their father's estate sold to an insurance company in return for a policy that will place him in a five-star retirement home for the rest of his life. But the farmer never gets his life of luxury--he dies before moving in. Was it a natural death? Was there foul play? Bruno begins the investigation that leads him to several shadowy insurance companies owned by a Russian oligarch with a Cypriot passport. The companies are based in Cyprus, Malta, and Luxembourg, but Bruno finds a weak spot in France: the Russian's France-based notaire and insurance agent. As Bruno is pursuing this lead, the oligarch's daughter turns up in the P©♭rigord, and complications ensue, eventually bringing the action to the ch©Øteau of an aging rock star. But, as ever, Bruno makes time for lunch amid it all"-- Provided by publisher.
