    DescriptionHollywood lawyer Danny Roth is the victim of a world-class wine heist - and he is devastated. Sam Levitt, former corporate lawyer, wine connoisseur, and expert on cultivated crime, is called in by Roth's insurance company, now saddled with a multi-million-dollar claim. His leads take him first to Bordeaux's magnificent vineyards and then to glorious Provence. Along the way, bien sur, he's joined by a beautiful French colleague, Sophie. In their quest to discover the truth, Sam and Sophie must explore many a chateau and its contents. The unravelling of this ingenious crime is threaded through with Mayle's seductive rendering of France's sensory delights. From the fine wines of Bordeaux to the bouillabaisse of Marseille, this is pure vintage Mayle.

    Review quote
    'Mayle peppers the narrative with wry observations, often in the form of his trademark one-liners' New York Times. 'It's a breeze of a read - light and fun, and written with the ease and assurance of an expert' Daily Mail. 'This book left me feeling thirsty for a glass of Bordeaux and hungry for beef cheeks with foie gras, followed by a fondant au chocolat' Irish Examiner. 'An evocative blending of wine and crime and a book that is sure to please Mayle fans and newcomers alike' City AM. 'This is a feel-good book for the summer, best savoured over a glass of vintage rose' Sunday Express.
