In the fourth book of the series, Verlaque and Bonnet find themselves hunting for a murderer on a remote island in the Mediterranean Sea.
Judge Antoine Verlaque and his girlfriend, law professor Marine Bonnet, are hoping for a relaxing holiday at the Locanda Sordou, but someone has other plans. 
Hoteliers Maxime and Catherine Le Bon have spent their life savings restoring the hotel, which lies in an archipelago of glittering islands off the coast of Marseille.  To celebrate the grand opening, a group of privileged guests join Verlaque and Bonnet: Marine's best friend, the free-spirited Sylvie; a fading film star, his much-younger wife, and her disgruntled son; an eccentric poet; a pair of affable American tourists; and a querulous Parisian couple.  The murder of one of the guests casts a shadow over everyone's vacation, and things go from bad to worse when a violent storm cuts off all communication with the mainland. Will the killer strike again? 
Praise for M. L. Longworth's Death in the Vines
'Judge Antoine Verlaque, the sleuth in this civilized series, discharges his professional duties with discretion.  But we're here to taste the wines . . . so many bottles, so many lovely views.  A reader might be forgiven for feeling woozy.'  Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times 
'A lovely, almost cozy police procedural that deserves to be read with a glass of wine.'  The Denver Post
