The “addictive” Winemaker Detective mystery series
returns to Burgundy, France, where wine connoisseurs and
amateur sleuths Benjamin Cooker and Virgile Lanssien sniff
out wrongdoers during a hazardous harvest.
The perfect wine, the perfect harvest... and the perfect murder?
When world-renowned wine expert Benjamin Cooker’s elderly
father needs him most, the erudite consultant and his
dashing assistant Virgile Lanssien are called away to
Burgundy to orchestrate the harvest. More than just picking
grapes, the Winemaker Detective must keep a delicate balance
between an old-time vintner and his heir as a catastrophic
hailstorm endangers some of France’s most celebrated wines.
Adding insult to injury, the brutal and mysterious murder of
a grape picker sends shock waves through the winemaking
world and the small-town gendarmes find evidence
incriminating Cooker. He and his trusty assistant put their
sharp senses to work detecting clues and subtleties in the
tight-knit community to find where the real killer is lurking.
In another satisfying wine novel with a French flair,
authors Jean-Pierre Alaux and Noël Balen give readers a
perfectly intoxicating combination French wine, gourmet
meals, and mystery in the gloriously described Burgundy wine
region with all the scenery, scents, and sounds of France.
This light, fun mystery combines amateur sleuths, food, and
wine in a wonderfully French mystery novel that doubles as a
travel guide. It is a new kind read on the international
mystery and crime scene: a pitch-perfect, wine-infused,
French-style cozy mystery.
