A crime wave jolts Aix-en-Provence in the third delightful Verlaque and Bonnet mystery.

A crime wave jolts Aix-en-Provence in the third delightful Verlaque and Bonnet mystery.
Winery owner Olivier Bonnard is devastated when he discovers that a priceless cache of rare vintages has been stolen from his private cellar.  Soon after, Monsieur Gilles d'Arras arrives at Aix-en-Provence's Palais de Justice to report another mysterious disappearance: his wife, Pauline, has vanished from their lavish apartment.  Madam has always been as tough as nails, but in recent weeks she's been wandering around town in her slippers and crying for no reason. 
As the mistral arrives to temper the region's late-summer heat, Commissioner Paulik receives an urgent call from Bonnard: he's just found Pauline d'Arras – dead in his vineyard.  Verlaque and Bonnet are once again investigating, in what will prove to be their most complicated case yet. 
Praise for M. L. Longworth:
'Longworth's voice is like a rich vintage of sparkling Dorothy Sayers and grounded Donna Leon.'  Booklist 
'Longworth . . . shows there's more to France than Paris and more to mystery than Maigret.'  Kirkus Reviews
