The foremost wine critic in France died doing what he loved – to strange extremes. Three years ago his body was found strung up like a scarecrow in a Gaillac vineyard, dressed in the ceremonial robes of the Order of the Divine Bottle and pickled in wine.

For ex-pat Scot and forensic forager Enzo Macleod, the answer lies in cracking the critic’s secretly coded reviews – which on publication could make or break a vineyard’s reputation.

He finds that under the sweet idyll of southern French winery lurks a bitter, back-stabbing community – including several suspects for the critic’s death. One of whom is prepared to kill again to keep their secret bottled up.

Peter May

Peter May was born and raised in Scotland. He was an award-winning journalist at the age of twenty-one and a published novelist at twenty-six. When his first book was adapted as a major drama series for the BCC, he quit journalism and during the high-octane fifteen years that followed, became one of Scotland's most successful television dramatists.

He created three prime-time drama series, presided over two of the highest-rated serials in his homeland as script editor and producer, and worked on more than 1,000 episodes of ratings-topping drama before deciding to leave television to return to his first love, writing novels.

He has won several literature awards in France, received the USA's Barry Award for The Blackhouse, the first in his internationally bestselling Lewis Trilogy; and in 2014 was awarded the ITV Specsavers Crime Thriller Book Club Best Read of the Year award for Entry Island. Peter now lives in South-West France with his wife, writer Janice Hally.
