Black Diamond by Martin Walker, 320 pages, read by Tracy, on 04/30/2013

I’ve never eaten any truffles, probably couldn’t afford to, so this book was interesting since the main subject is truffles. The main character, Bruno chief of Police, finds a friend murdered who is a truffle cultivator and seller. Bruno asks: “Do you see truffles as a motive for murder?” Apparently they are worth a lot of money to French restaurants. Bruno is again looking out for his fellow villagers when the local mill closes and leaves workers jobless just before Christmas. Could this be another motive?
