A Taste for Death by Don Stevens


"A TASTE FOR DEATH has everything I look for in a mystery—clean, crisp writing, a challenging puzzle and characters I want to spend time with. Louis Deville is a welcome addition to my Favorite Detectives list (even if he insists on being called an inspector). More, please."
--Charles Benoit, author of Cold Calls 

Investigator Deville is a recovering alcoholic who suffers from amnesia. While working on the case, he unravels mysteries of his own past, while trying to repair his current life. Wine critic and writer Gerard Bellamont’s welcome to the Finger Lakes region was far from friendly. Some would even say his murder was of no surprise. The wine owners did not take the critic’s words lightly and his days had been numbered. Besides writing reviews, there had been more than one lead connecting the victim to the suspects.

Who should read this book:

Wine lovers, mystery readers, and/or both. The wine industry is continually growing, and the Finger Lakes region is continuing to dominate the industry with awards and praise from national and worldwide media, including Wine Enthusiast magazine, who has named the Finger Lakes one of its top ten "wine travel" destinations for 2015. Last year, Wine Enthusiast gave another nod to the region, naming New York state, including the Finger Lakes, as its worldwide "Wine Region of the Year" for 2014. In addition, this detective story is a modern mystery in a traditional British style, fans of Louise Penny, Elizabeth George, Martha Grimes, and Charles Todd will enjoy this series.
