"Corey Johnston looked much older than Deville had expected. Corey’s face, pale and sickly, showed skin so tight Deville could almost see the skull beneath."
This prequel to the Finger Lakes Wine Mystery series follows Investigator Deville as he begins his adventure into wine, mystery, and mayhem. Corey Johnston, a young entrepreneur, struggles to keep his sanity, while managing a winery and a distressed manor. Will the poison pen letters and threatening packages keep him from his passions? Or will the recent strange occurrences seal a tragic fate?
This traditional detective murder mystery novel is in the style of Elizabeth George, Charles Todd, and Martha Grimes.
