Is this really a novel at 128 pages? Also, where is the traditional drama, suspense and meaning found in the other capers? So unsatisfying and insipid. Skip this one

A quick read full of fun and good food. I am anxious to read the next installment.

I loved it! A perfect, light, happy and relaxing tale as enjoyable as a glass of champagne! I am going through a stressful time of family illness  and this was the perfect prescription for rest and relaxation.   Merci beaucoup, M. Mayle

A complete bit of fluff.  The author should re-read A Year in Provence, Toujours Provence, or even some of his early novels,  make a comparison - and be ashamed.

Maybe fan will be greatly disappointed by this flimsy caper account. No mystery, no suspense and none of the usual wry Mayle wit. It''s as if he were merely going through the motions just to get it over with. Just as well, as the plot is weak as to be non-existent.

Sam Levitt, master sleuth, is on vacation but like all great sleuths the mysteries and spy-like adventures don't stop just because your on vacation. Sam and his girlfriend Elena are staying at the home of billionaire friend, Francis Reboul, when it becomes crystal clear that the Russian mobster, Oleg Vronsky, would do anything to get what he wants and what he wants is Reboul's villa. Who would kill for a villa he has his eyes on? Well Vronsky would, but he wouldn't do it himself their are other ways to dispose of someone without implicating one's self.  Vronsky, however, does not count on Reboul's friends actually doing something about this hit on their friends life. Full of jet-setting adventure I found The Corsican Caper to be a more tame spy novel than I am used to but it was still good, like a good sleuth novel from the good old days, Christie and Doyle come to mind in the style even though I don't feel that this novel lives up to any of theirs just that their topic/style of novel is the same. A quick, enjoyable read!
