Satisfying, if a little bit slow.
30 November 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

A strange death in a bar leads March and Giron to a silent order of monks.

Colonel March, a definite Francophile is once again helping The French Police with a case.

It's quite nice mystery, I liked the tone, the setting, and of course it's nice to see Colonel March placed in a little bit of danger. It is somewhat of a paint by numbers murder mystery, it's quite slow moving, and a little frustrating that one of the main suspects is from a silent order.

A really lovely cast here including Zena Matthews and Anton Diffring. Really nice to see Pohlmann back as Inspector Goron.

Nice, if a bit slow. 6/10.
