Enter into the world of Police Inspector Canal, whose fascination with wonderful wines and fabulous food draw him to the Loire River Valley, entangling him in intrigues involving wine, math, music, art, and even sports.

Police Inspector Canal has a love for all things French - and particularly French women - which leads him to the Loire Valley.

Here, outlandish crimes occur at an ever more frenzied pace in the world-famous castles along the royal river, from Chambord and Chenonceau, Amboise and Azay, to Saumur and Oiron.

In order to crack them, Canal, with a psychological flare that has nothing Renaissance about it, has to solve architectural secrets as well as the many mysteries of wine tasting!

Novelist and psychoanalyst, Bruce Fink is the author of numerous detective novels that span two continents, jumping from New York to Paris and on to all the great vineyards of France.

About the author

By (author) Bruce Fink

Bruce Fink is a Lacanian psychoanalyst and supervisor who trained in France with the psychoanalytic institute Jacques Lacan created shortly before his death, the Ecole de la Cause Freudienne in Paris. He has translated several of Lacan's works into English - including 'Ecrits, The Names-of-the-Father, The Triumph of Religion,' and 'Seminars VI, VIII, XVI,' and 'XX' - and is the author of numerous books on Lacan, including 'The Lacanian Subject, A Clinical Introduction to Lacanian Psychoanalysis, Lacan to the Letter, Fundamentals of Psychoanalytic Technique, Against Understanding' (2 volumes), and 'Lacan on Love'. More recently, he published 'A Clinical Introduction to Freud: Techniques for Everyday Practice'. A board member of the Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Center, he has also penned several mysteries involving a character loosely based on Jacques Lacan: 'The Psychoanalytic Adventures of Inspector Canal, Death by Analysis, Odor di Murderer/Scent of a Killer, The Purloined Love', and most recently 'The Da Vinci Staircase: Love and Turbulence in the Loire Valley'. His books have been translated into over a dozen languages.
