When Sam's last adventure in France ended, he thought it'd be a while before he went back, especially with the charms of Elena Morales to keep him in Los Angeles. But when the immensely wealthy Francis Reboul asks him to take a job in Marseille, it's impossible for Sam and Elena to resist the possibility of further excitement, to say nothing of the pleasures of the region. Yet as a competition over Marseille's valuable waterfront grows more hotly disputed, Sam, representing Reboul, finds himself in the middle of an increasingly intrigue-ridden and dangerous real estate grab.

The second book in the Sam Levitt series

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.

I tried but was unable to be motivated enough to finish this incredibly slow moving story. My rating is based on what I read. There are too many good stories to get to than waste my time on those unworthy. 2 of 10 stars

A little disappointing. This certainly does not have the extraordinary charm of his "Year in Provence" series, but it was mildly entertaining nonethless. The book did have a wee bit of a James Bond flair...Marseille, pretty girls, murderous British lords, fast cars, exotic alcoholic drinks and marvelous meals. Perhaps my lackadaisical feelings for this TB can actually be traced to the reader, who does a competent but not a particularly enjoyable reading.
