Inhaltsangabe: Who'd have thought it? Commandant Truchaud of the Paris police is used to dealing with villainy and violence in the French capital, but when he is summoned home to Burgundy on the death of his brother, he finds a seething vat of theft, fraud and cold-blooded murder fomenting beneath the serene surface of the little village of Nuits-Saint-Georges. What is hidden behind the cellar walls? Who wanted his brother dead? Why does Inspector Molleau have a loaded pistol in his desk drawer? As Truchaud digs deeper and deeper into the mystery, he discovers that, for some people, Richebourg is quite literally a wine to die for - The Richebourg Affair is the first of a trilogy set in and around Nuits-Saint-Georges, following Truchaud through three different wine-related scandals over the course of a year in the Burgundy vineyards.
Rezension: "R.M. Cartmel's The Richebourg Affair is a well-crafted treasure of unforgettable characters, eloquent yet whimsical language, intrigues burrowed into the ways of classic French wine making, and vintage murder mystery writing. I felt so comfortable in Cartmel's hands as a storyteller that I couldn't believe it's a debut novel." Jeffrey Siger, best-selling author of Murder in Mykonos------------------------ "Whether you are a lover of detective novels, the great wines of Burgundy, or like me, both, The Richebourg Affair is a gripping read that will have you turning the pages from beginning to end." Chris Pollington - Private Account Manager - Berry Bros. & Rudd
