And the main course is...murder.
Animated by a passion for food, wine, and justice, the Gourmet Detective travels to Provence to investigate a shadowy business deal between two vineyards. But before he can even sample the delights of Pate de Grives on triangles of hot, crisp toast, he encounters a corpse leaning against a cart in the vineyard. Was he really gored to death by sangliers, wild boars rumored to live in the abandoned caves surrounding the village?

Trusting "In vino veritas", the Gourmet Detective follows his palate through a host of Provencal delicacies and sanguinary divertissements while a brilliant killer with exquisite taste prepares to serve him his last meal....
