About this product
- DescriptionThe Bugatti Type 57 Atlantic was called the most beautiful car of all time. Only four of them were ever built. A California museum paid $37 million for one; Ralph Lauren bought ather; a third was smashed by a train at a level crossing. The fourth disappeared in France during World War 2. It was the car used by British racing ace, William Grover Williams, twice winner of the French and Monaco Grand Prix, who became an undercover agent in Occupied France. The latest adventure in the Bru series of mystery vels starts from this true story. Two young men, both racing drivers with a passion for antique cars, compete to find new clues as to the car's hiding place in the Perigord region of France where Bru is the local chief of police. When a local researcher turns up dead on Bru's patch, and French intelligence starts investigating the use of classic car sales to launder money for funding Islamic terrorism, Bru finds himself once more caught up in a case that reaches far beyond his small town and its people. With the bucolic charm and gourmet cooking that are the hallmarks of this series, Bru's latest adventure finds him falling in love again as he races to find the murderer and to track down the fate of the most beautiful car ever made.
