“If Camilla keeps producing mysteries as richly textured and downright breathtaking as her latest, who knows? Maybe, one day, we might be identifying Agatha Christie as ‘the British Camilla Läckberg.’”—NPR on THE STONECUTTER
Läckberg’s latest is finally out—and it’s everything crime fiction fans hoped it would be.
Downie is a long-term American expat living in France and Italy, whose previous books have focused on food and Paris. For this one, he headed into the countryside on foot, following one of the many routes that used to feed into Europe’s most popular pilgrim networks. But it’s the act of walking with his photographer wife, the pleasures of the French countryside, the lighting out for the territory when one is a certain age, that give this book its reason, more than religion and pilgrims (and how could it be otherwise with a self-proclaimed “freethinker and an agnostic fallen Catholic”?). The narrative lingers over Downie’s passion for food and drink, sweeping views and history. He is an amiable companion, questioning and willing, and flawed, too — a damaged back and aching knees force him to stop just outside Mâcon, less than a third of the way to Compostela. They eventually make it to the Pyrenees, but, once again, it’s not the destination but the pleasures and revelations of the journey that matter.
