The Ezra Brant Mystery Series
(A Wine Lover's Mystery)

The Beast of Barbaresco

JACKET NOTES:  For eminent wine writer Ezra Brant, the trip to the picturesque Piedmontese village of Barbaresco to help judge the annual wine competition was supposed to be a restful interlude - despite the talk of a serial killer the locals have dubbed 'The Beast of Barbaresco'.
But when fellow judge and wine writer Christopher Hollinger disappears after confiding that he was on the trail of the biggest story of his career, Ezra is left with a mysterious computer disc - and a strong feeling that his own life is now in serious danger.
His only hope of finding Hollinger and saving himself is to uncover Barbaresco's jealously guarded secrets - secrets that will eventually lead him to the very lair of the beast himself.
