He's managing to pay the bills, but spends most of his time just killing time. Then the Tour de France comes to town and Burke finds himself caught up in one death and then a second.
D'Arcy Kavanagh is a former journalist and journalism instructor who has spent decades touring Europe and writing about his travels for magazines and newspapers.
