Zinfandel is a very fine wine
Wine clubs are a great way for local wineries to see their wines. You pay a monthly fee and get a couple of bottles of wine a month, plus discounted tastings throughout the year.
It just so happened I had a group of investors who wanted to tour the smaller wineries in the area. Which was Kismet as far as Tim was concerned. While he might not want to take on investors, it wouldn't hurt to showcase his very best batch of Zinfandel ever.
Unfortunately, someone had murdered a man and dumped him into the large tub of grape must that was the beginning of Tim's batch of wine.
The police were eyeing Tim as suspect number one. Especially when they discovered who the murdered man was. You see it was an FDA inspector. The very inspector Tim was seen arguing with earlier in the week. But Tim swore he didn't do it. so I set about to find the killer and rescue Tim.
It's a complicated case as my friend Holly gets involved with a cult-like, self-help guru and we find a twisted connection between the guru and the FDA inspector. Is it a false clue or are we on the trail of a murderer with too much time on their hands.
