Peter Mayle at his effervescent best—his master sleuth, Sam Levitt, eating,
drinking, and romancing his way through the South of France even as he
investigates a case of deadly intrigue among the Riviera’s jet set.
Francis Reboul is taking in the view at his coastal estate, awaiting the
arrival of vacationing friends Sam Levitt and Elena Morales, when he spies a
massive yacht whose passengers seem a little too interested in his property.
The yacht belongs to rapacious Russian tycoon Oleg Vronsky, who, for his own
purposes, will stop at nothing to obtain Reboul’s villa. When Reboul refuses to
sell, Vronsky’s methods quickly turn unsavory. Now it’s up to Sam—he’s saved
Reboul’s neck before—to negotiate with an underworld of mercenaries and hit
men, not to mention the Corsican mafia, to prevent his friend from becoming a
victim of Vronsky’s “Russian diplomacy.”

the wines and the starlets sparkle, and enjoying sumptuous meals, from

closer to the truth of Vronsky’s schemes, he realizes Reboul might not be the
only one unable to enjoy the good life for long.
