Monsieur Pamplemousse and his trusty dog, Pommes Frites are called into Le Guide's offices early one morning and presented with a string of Leclercq's plaintive conundrums - all relating to his mobster uncle-in-law. These include a letter about a juicy steak turned brisket, a dead restaurant owner, a giant truffle delivered by post and the imminent arrival of the vivacious Caterina to the Gare des Lyons. All of which Pamplemousse has been called upon to help.

MICHAEL BOND was born in Newbury in 1926. In 1958, his first children's book, A Bear Called Paddington was published; many more were to follow and the bear became a star. In 1983 he started writing adult fiction, with the first tale to feature Monsieur Pamplemousse and his faithful bloodhound, Pommes Frites.Review:
'Not a page passes without a well-earned chuckle, a guffaw, or a fit of the giggles - a tribute indeed to Michael Bond, a cordon bleu master of the incongruous'. Strand Magazine 'Sure to please ... Absolutely hilarious' Good Book Guide 'An engaging mix of farce, detection and fine cuisine' The Times 'A delightful French frolic of a detective story' The Scotsman 'Monsieur Pamplemousse and his faithful dog Pommes Frites are true and original comic inventions' The Guardian 'A delicious caper featuring haute cuisine and dastardly doings in Paris, this is a lively, funny mystery.' Good Book Guide 'A delightful cross between whimsy and French farce ... The books have charm in abundance, sharp characterisation and gentle wit' Crime Review
