One of the better series entries
4 September 2018 | by gridoon2019See all my reviews

This French take on "Sparkling Cyanide" is like tasty French champagne. The mystery is engaging and keeps you guessing (if you don't know or don't remember the story - luckily, I didn't), the casting is good (complemented by several truly beautiful French women), Alice is allowed to be both funny and glamorous, and Laurence is offensive in an affectionate way (if that makes sense). One of the finest entries in this series, and recommended without hesitation to fans of the genre. *** out of 4.
