The disappearance of a friend and millions of Francs worth of wine interrupts David’s buying trip in France when he pauses to comfort and assist his friend’s wife, Catherine.
Their lives are threatened, the intensifying circumstances draw them closer together, and they uncover their buried traumas, insecurities and longings. This is a tale of mounting tensions, realisations and passions, woven through a gripping crime thriller on the Burgundy canals and in the French wine business of the 1980s.
“A compelling read which pulls us inside the French wine trade of thirty, forty and fifty years ago to experience a gripping crime thriller and a sweet romance.”
“Great insights. I learned so much about wine through this story.”
