"It's always a lark when Benjamin Cooker is on the case. I have learned more about French wines from reading the series than from quaffing the stuff for decades. Each book is set in a different part of the country so there have been a wide variety of wines highlighted. This time, he has been asked by an insurance company to investigate a fire that killed an employee and destroyed a business. He and his assistant soon discover many inconsistencies and convoluted relationships. Motives for foulplay are myriad. Jealousy, deceit, dishonesty abound. Naturally Benjamin is able to unravel the mystery and solve the crimes. He does this all while enjoying The Water of LIfe. It is always an entertaining journey to travel with him.” —Reader review
