The director of theology at the Universitie d’Aix has been murdered. There could be several reasons why. First, he was about to retire and not only the job is available but his rent free apartment. Also he has a large collection of expensive glass vases. And he was about to name the recipient of an elite fellowship that several students were hoping for. In this second book in a series of Judge Antoine Verlaque mysteries the crime is the main subject but also the food and wine of the Provence area of France. Verlaque also has the help of his girlfriend Marine Bonnet a professor at the Universitie. Bon Apetit!
