Pel and the Touch of Pitch

When Chief Inspector Pel accepts a drinks invitation at the house of a big shot, Deputy Claude Barclay, he doesn’t realise how compromised he will become by his acceptance. Shortly afterwards, Barclay is kidnapped; the partially decomposed body of a retired soldier is discovered in a wood and a series of art forgeries need investigating. Pel must tie all three together and solve a scandal, which has become the talk of France.
