I enjoyed this romp -caper book. Does not take itself seriously. It's a wildly implausible, light-hearted, gently amusing tale of good guys catching bad guys. Beautiful descriptions of each locale, and many of the meals. The plot is much stronger than the book before this (Vintage Caper). I really liked the AudioBook reader. Robin Sachs' reading is far better, smoother than that of the poor American who struggled with all the French words in the Vintage Caper and who gave us a sort of over-the-top caricature of Maurice Chevalier's French accent for all the French characters. The two books are really Parts 1 and 2 of the same tale, with many of the same characters. Marseille Caper is, sort of, the reward for slogging through the weaker plot and plodding reader of the Vintage Caper.
