4.1/5 Goodreads

Twenty years after leading the French rugby team to victory over England, billionaire businessman Pierre Dombasle organises a reunion for his former team-mates to mark this celebrated triumph.
Chief Inspector Daniel Jacquot, who scored the winning try, would prefer to decline the invitation. But you don't say 'no' to a man like Pierre Dombasle. Reunited at the billionaire's opulent Côte d'Azur residence it is clear to Jacquot that, since they hung up their boots, some of the players have become hugely wealthy and successful. But others have not. Old rivalries and dark jealousies soon re-surface and when one of the guests is found dead, Jacquot starts looking for a killer.
On the Côte d'Azur, Daniel Jacquot discovers that heroes can turn into villains and success can demand the ultimate price...

"Only an Englishman could set his detective fiction in France and infuse it with such passion for the place and its people... well-written and compelling...tight plotting, excellent characterisation and lyrical descriptions mean Jacquot is here to stay" - Daily Mail
"Well-drawn, strongly flavoured, spicy and served up with unmistakeable relish" - Literary Review
