My Review

Another fun and interesting adventure of wine expert and detective Benjamin Cooker and his reliable assistant Virgil. This time they visit the beautiful French capital. The Bretonneau Hospital enlists the help of Benjamin to control a sick vine sick do not have the money to pay his advice. The wine maker is too curious and agrees to free her diagnosis. Return to Paris he awakens old memories including one of his first loves Sheila. He also visits an old friend and finds him  just been attacked. Who will be the aggressor? We follow Benjamin and Virgil in their investigations to the beautiful streets of Paris.
It's the eighth book of The Winemaker Detective Series, you can read without difficulty as stand alone but also recommended to read the others, are short and pleasant readings.
If you love wine, its history and Paris, this is a book not to be missed.
I received an advance reader edition of this book from  Publisher via NetGalley for the purpose of providing an honest review.



Alaux-Balen Jean-Pierre Alaux and Noël Balen, wine lover and music lover respectively, came up with the idea for the Winemaker Detective series while sharing a meal, with a bottle of Château Gaudou 1996, a red wine from Cahors with smooth tannins and a balanced nose.


Translator Sally Pane studied French at State University of New York Oswego and the Sorbonne before receiving her Masters Degree in French Literature from the University of Colorado. She has translated several titles in this series.
