"A great murder mystery set in Lyon... a fascinating read...enthralling, very cleverly written.."

Many thanks to The Good Life France and the French Book Worm for their review of Minced, Marinated, and Murdered by Noël Balen and Vanessa Barrot.


What do you get when you have two authors, Noël Balen a writer and musician with over thirty mystery books to his name, and his corporate lawyer wife Vanessa Barrot who originates from a family of Parisian restaurant owners? The answer is: a great murder mystery story set in Lyon, the second largest city in France, and its gastronomic capital.

.... I highly recommend this totally enthralling murder mystery, it is very cleverly written, and I would challenge anyone not to want to visit Lyon and its restaurants after reading it. I know it is on my list of places to see now!
