    I like this series and usually rate each book 4 stars This one loses half a star for too much pretentious detail about how superb each mouthful of food is and far too much information about wine I had to skim half a star because the murder was seven years old and I was required to believe that the murder victim s computer was still on his desk still wired to the internet and the printer and apparently untouched by human hand in the intervening years Oh and the printer ink still worked I I like this series and usually rate each book 4 stars This one loses half a star for too much pretentious detail about how superb each mouthful of food is and far too much information about wine I had to skim half a star because the murder was seven years old and I was required to believe that the murder victim s computer was still on his desk still wired to the internet and the printer and apparently untouched by human hand in the intervening years Oh and the printer ink still worked I am prepared to suspend belief in crime novels but sometimes they go too far even for me On the other hand I still enjoy Enzo and his slightly unusual family and the book was well paced and exciting once we got out of the restaurant and the wine cellar And Enzo even managed to help solve the case with a few forensic details which was nice.So not the best of the series so far, for me anyway, but still a good read

    We have dog detectives, cat detectives, recipe mysteries, vampire sleuths, etc Most of these I ignore At least a university professor who is a forensic science expert and works on cold cases makes sense.Enzo MacLeod, is investigating the cold case murder of Marc Fraysse, a three star restaurant chef, who owned a place so famous that reservations were required six months in advance Discovered by the local flic, Dominique, who, Enzo discovers to his delight, cleans up spectacularly out of unifo We have dog detectives, cat detectives, recipe mysteries, vampire sleuths, etc Most of these I ignore At least a university professor who is a forensic science expert and works on cold cases makes sense.Enzo MacLeod, is investigating the cold case murder of Marc Fraysse, a three star restaurant chef, who owned a place so famous that reservations were required six months in advance Discovered by the local flic, Dominique, who, Enzo discovers to his delight, cleans up spectacularly out of uniform Some of these fall spring relationships, I find disconcerting The idea of dating someone younger than my daughter is weird Speaking of daughters, we learn relatively early that Enzo has sent his daughter to work incognito at the restaurant and he soon learns mostly through her flirting with Phillippe that Marc had been having an affair with Anne, the wife of the sous chef After his death the restaurant was taken over by Marc s brother, Gus Rumors had been circulating that Marc was about to lose his third star It seems a restaurant critic had it in for Marc.Enzo enlists his daughter to help gather some undercover inside information and soon discovers that Marc problems way beyond those of a restaurateur in fear of losing a star He was losing millions at the track A multitude of other motives begin to surface as Enzo explores Marc s relationship with his wife and brother, Gus, from whom he had been estranged for many years before Marc achieved his third star Familial discord is a theme that inflicts both the Fraysse and MacLeod families and the parallels between the two seemed a bit too coincidental if not irrelevant May clearly loves haute cuisine which he describes in loving detail as well as the French countryside I m not a an oenophile so I suspect I didn t appreciate the effete if not absurd descriptions of wines Nevertheless, they elicited an unintended chuckle Well written with an ingenious plot I ll add some some of the earlier Enzo titles to my reading list I knocked off a star because the forensic science seemed to take a back seat to cuisine I received a free copy of this book as an advanced reader copy That it was free affected my judgment not a whit

    I m up to date with the Enzo Files here is to hoping that we get the last two mysteries at some point in the foreseeable future Whilst the Enzo Files are not my favourite work by Peter May, I do thoroughly enjoy them Each book offers up another interesting criminal story, with the understory of Enzo s life developing I admit that at times I grow annoyed with the soap opera of his life, but as a whole I love to watch his development as a character along with the development of side characte I m up to date with the Enzo Files here is to hoping that we get the last two mysteries at some point in the foreseeable future Whilst the Enzo Files are not my favourite work by Peter May, I do thoroughly enjoy them Each book offers up another interesting criminal story, with the understory of Enzo s life developing I admit that at times I grow annoyed with the soap opera of his life, but as a whole I love to watch his development as a character along with the development of side characters With this one, we have another great story Things are nicely woven together to create another great mystery that keeps you interested until the end even if you are not second guessing because, as with the other books in the series, we don t quite reach the point where you question all the motives.That being said, there were some issues with this book Editing issues, I should point out There were inconsistencies that should have been noticed during the editing stage, which prevented me from enjoying the book as much as I would have liked to I would have found the story muchengaging had I not been frowning at how information was contradicting what had been written in prior chapters.Nevertheless, it was a fun addition to the series and I want to see how things end for Enzo and company

    I like this series, and Blowback is a strong addition It does, however, contain a few errors, which surprised me May uses manilla envelopes, when it should be manila The Italian soccer team appears as Juventas it s Juventus For the second time I think in an Enzo book, he makes a dam damn error It was like a damn had burst inside her that should be dam When Enzo is stumbling around in the snow, he describes it as too dark and black for Enzo to see That didn t work for me Whe I like this series, and Blowback is a strong addition It does, however, contain a few errors, which surprised me May uses manilla envelopes, when it should be manila The Italian soccer team appears as Juventas it s Juventus For the second time I think in an Enzo book, he makes a dam damn error It was like a damn had burst inside her that should be dam When Enzo is stumbling around in the snow, he describes it as too dark and black for Enzo to see That didn t work for me When I m out at night in those kind of conditions, the snow tends to lighten everything up I don t think it s possible to have a pitch blackness issue on white ground Another snow complaint in another scene, snow is supposedly coming down heavily and Enzo looks down at the town below In that case, with the snow blocking his vision, he wouldn t be able to see much of anything in the distance And there s this strange sentence Not only to provide overnight accommodation for those who wished to drink and drive, but in combination with the restaurant I think May meant to write those who wished to NOT drink and drive But I m just quibbling over little stuff This is a solid book, and I look forward to seeing how the series concludes

    I hadn t read a Peter May for a while and I enjoyed this one Enzo has really grown on me as a character and the cold cases he is tasked with solving are always interesting For me his Chinese series is muchgripping but nevertheless this series makes for a good read.

    Solid police procedural mystery set in France featuring a Scottish forensics scientist who works cold cases This one was about a dead chef and its description of various wines and delicacies makes it a foodie s delight This was the first I have read in the series and it stood fine on its own.

    What drew me into this novel was the complexity of the characters, especially after the cookie cutter perfection of the characters in my last James Patterson reading Life is messy, but these guys faced it with intellect and a glass of wine Being wrapped up in the storyline was serenely peaceful for me, because whatever drama was thrown out, the characters dealt with it in quiet confidence And the true motive of the murder seemed justified in my opinion I liked this novel a lot return retu What drew me into this novel was the complexity of the characters, especially after the cookie cutter perfection of the characters in my last James Patterson reading Life is messy, but these guys faced it with intellect and a glass of wine Being wrapped up in the storyline was serenely peaceful for me, because whatever drama was thrown out, the characters dealt with it in quiet confidence And the true motive of the murder seemed justified in my opinion I liked this novel a lot return return The only drawback I found were the young, beautiful love interests who, of course, could not resist hooking up with much older fellows double their age It is fiction, so I will suspend my skepticism

    Another good readAlthough as a reader you are pulled into trying to work out the culprit, which is always interesting and entertaining I am also always waiting to see which woman he beds and every book so far he does Having said that the books are always very readable and entertaining Thanks for the fun.
