About the Author:

Peter May won the Scottish Young Journalist of the Year Award at the age of 21, and had his first novel published at 26. He then left journalism and became one of Scotland's most successful and prolific television dramatists. Returning now to novels, his outstanding China Thrillers series of books are winning critical acclaim. To research the series, Peter May makes annual trips to China. As a mark of their respect for his work, The Chinese Crime Writers' Association made him an honorary member of their Beijing Chapter. He is the only Westerner to receive such an honour. Peter May is married to writer Janice Hally and lives in France.

From AudioFile:

Author Peter May creates a vivid portrait of Southern FranceÕs wine country in this compelling story of death in the often cutthroat wine-making business. James Adams offers a weighty reading that captures the very sweetness of the wine and the warmth of the blood that runs throughout. With a variety of shrewd characters popping up, Adams makes the best of his abilities and utilizes a number of accents. At times, mostly while assuming a rich French accent, he walks a fine line between a flattering interpretation and a portrayal that sounds stereotypical and forced. However, Adams still wins over the listener and never fails to capture the moment. L.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
