Ellinor's Litventures

This blog is about my literary adventures in different genres. I like variety in my reading and will read books from most genres but particulary book with some literary merit.

Fatal Pursuit by Martin Walker

Fatal Pursuit: A novel (Bruno, Chief of Police Series) - Martin Walker

This book is all about cars and car races, especially about a Bugatti 57s Atlantic, the world's most valuable vintage car. I enjoyed Bruno as a co-driver in a car rallye, but overall I'd say that this is one of the weaker installments in the series. From the first time the Bugatti was mentioned it was obvious where this was leading and also who the murderer was - of the second murder I mean; the first one was never really solved or did I miss something? The terrorist plot also seemed very constructed and just a weak excuse to give Isabelle an appearance. The setting was great as usual and so is Bruno's work for his town. I'd not recommend this book for people new to the series, but fans will love it anyway.
