SYNOPSIS

Jacques Forêt, a former gendarme turned investigator, delves into the murky world of commercial sabotage – a place where people lie and misrepresent, and where information is traded and used as a threat.
The Vaux organisation is losing contracts and money, and Jacques is asked to undertake an internal investigation. As he works through the complexity of all the evidence, he finds more than he bargained for, and his own life is threatened.
When a body of a woman is found, it appears to be suicide. But as the investigation takes another turn, Jacques suspects there is more to it.
Who is behind it all…and why? Will Jacques find the answer before another person ends up dead?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Messandrierre Angela Wren Angela Wren
I’m an actor and director at a small theatre
a few miles from where I live in Yorkshire in the UK.
I did work as a project and business change manager
– very pressured and very demanding –
but I managed to escape and now I write books.
I’ve always loved stories and story telling
so it seemed a natural progression, to me, to try my hand at writing.
My first published story was in an anthology,
which was put together by the magazine ‘Ireland’s Own’ and published in 2011.
I particularly enjoy the challenge of plotting and planning different genres of work.
My short stories vary between contemporary romance, memoir, mystery and historical.
I also write comic flash-fiction
and have drafted two one-act plays that have been recorded for local radio.
My full-length stories are set in France where I like to spend as much time as possible each year.

SYNOPSIS

The start of a wine plus crime mystery series.

Immerse yourself in French countryside and gourmet attitude with two amateur sleuths gumshoeing around Bordeaux wine country.

In modern-day Bordeaux, there are few wine estates still within the city limits. The prestigious grand cru Moniales Haut-Brion is one of them. When some barrels turn, world-renowned winemaker turned gentleman detective Benjamin Cooker starts asking questions. Is it negligence or sabotage? Who would want to target this esteemed vintner? Cooker and his assistant Virgile Lanssien search the city and the vineyards for answers, giving readers and inside view of this famous wine region. Treachery in Bordeaux is the first of the 20-book Winemaker Detective series that delves into the underworld of a global luxury industry. The world of wine is no more respectable than the world of finance. There’s money, deceit, death, crime, inheritance, jealousy—all the ingredients needed to distill a fine detective series! [FROM THE PUBLISHER’S WEBSITE]

Praise for Treachery in Bordeaux

“I love good mysteries. I love good wine.
So imagine my joy at finding a great mystery about wine,
and winemaking, and the whole culture of that fascinating world.
And then I find it’s the first of a series.
I can see myself enjoying many a bottle of wine
while enjoying the adventures of Benjamin Cooker
in this terrific new series.”
— William Martin, New York Times bestselling author
of Back Bay and The Lincoln Letter

 “Treachery in Bordeaux is a fine vintage
forged by the pens of two very different varietals.
It is best consumed slightly chilled, and never alone.
You will be intrigued by its mystery,
and surprised by its finish,
and it will stay with you for a very long time.”
— Prize-winning, international bestselling author Peter May
