Starting this book for a buddy read on Murder & Mayhem(link is external) later today.  It's blurbed as being witty and melancholy by turns, if the plot of this eccentric tale of greed and witchcraft doesn't have your mouth watering, the loving descriptions of French good will.

Personally I'm fighting off a very strong urge to get a pet Truffle hunting pig just like Roseline.

From the Blurb:

In Banon, a small, peacefull village in upper Provence, the local community's principal source of income is the cultivation of truffles.  Outsiders rarely venture to this remote region, but a small group of society's drop-outs have chosen to set up house on the outskirts of the village.

Opening Lines:

'Come on Roseline!  Just one more?  Dig me up another one!'

In Banon, a small peaceful village in upper Provence, the local community's principal source of income is the cultivation of truffles.  Outsiders rarely venture to this remote region, but a small group of society's drop-outs have chosen to set up home on the outskirts of the village.  When one of them is found dead in the freezer of a local hotel, and when a further five bodies are discovered drained of blood in a family vault in the cemetery, it takes all Commissaire Laviolette's considerable resources to unravel crimes that have been committed in a climate of age-old superstition and secret animosity.
