You’ll want to grab something to eat and drink before settling in with one of Martin Walker’s “Bruno, Chief of Police,” books. Otherwise, you run the risk of your mouth watering onto the pages of his charming, historic, and thought-provoking mysteries. As in all the novels in this series, “The Shooting at Chateau Rock” stars Bruno, a country cop who spends as much time preparing gourmet meals as tracking down the bad guy, and the Perigord, a region in Southwestern France with rich history and gastronomy. Martin Walker joins us from his home in this beautiful setting where he talks about its inspiration on his novels, the reader who he writes for (but who’s never read his Bruno books), and his love of music (he even serenades us).
