Sun Valley, Idaho—playground of the wealthy and politically connected—is home to an annual wine auction that attracts high rollers from across the country, and Blaine County sheriff Walt Fleming must ensure it goes on without a hitch. The world’s most elite wine connoisseurs have descended on Sun Valley to taste and bid on the world’s best wines, including three bottles said to have been a gift from Thomas Jefferson to John Adams. With sky-high prices all but guaranteed for these historic items, it’s no wonder a group of thieves is out to steal them. Walt is responsible for all the security for the glitzy event, the safety of the dignitaries, the auction site, and the wines themselves.

Walt is enjoying a rare afternoon of freedom, fly-fishing with his nephew Kevin, when a passing truck catches his eye—and his suspicions throw him headlong into the discovery of a complicated plan to steal the rare wine.

When a bomb explodes just as the auction revs up, the investigation explodes as well, pulling Walt in a dozen different directions. He is caught in the middle of a heist of epic proportions—and not the heist he had prepared for—orchestrated by the ingenious mind of Christopher Cantell, a man who seems to have prepared for everything, including the way Walt’s own sheriff’s office will react.

“In Sheriff Fleming, Pearson has created a likable, sympathetic protagonist, forever challenged by ferocious weather, a feisty citizenry, and feral criminal minds.” —Booklist (starred review) on Killer View

About the Author:

Ridley Pearson is the author of more than two dozen novels, including the New York Times bestsellers Killer Summer, Killer View and Killer Weekend, the bestselling Lou Boldt crime series, and many books for young readers. He lives with his wife and two daughters, dividing his time between St. Louis, Missouri, and Hailey, Idaho.

From AudioFile:

If you stick with Phil Gigante long enough, you're bound to end up enjoying this third Walt Flemming mystery. It just takes so long to get to the heart of the story that you almost give up. The novel starts with the attempted theft of three bottles of wine allegedly given to John Adams by Thomas Jefferson. Add to that the question of whether the wine was authentic, and you have what appears to be the whole plot. Not so. With the appearance of two teenagers, an odd cast of characters, and some beautiful descriptions of Sun Valley, Idaho, your patience is ultimately rewarded. Gigante carries the ball all the way from the book's slow start to its innovative ending. Gigante's delivery commands attention, and his masterful portrayals of characters are totally convincing. This is one book better listened to than read. A.L.H. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
