An invitation to dinner at the home of renowned wine collector Sir William Burton-Trent soon finds Chef Maurice in the middle of an all-too-real murder mystery party, when Sir William is found dead in his own wine cellar.
The guests are acting all innocent, but which one is only playing the part? The pushy Californian film director? The seductive French winemaker?
Or could it be, against all narrative decency, the butler who did it?
With the help of food critic friend Arthur Wordington-Smythe, a large kipper sandwich, and the newly formed Cochon Rouge Wine Appreciation Society, Chef Maurice must get to the bottom of matters before events turn decidedly sour…

My review:  Chef Maurice and the Wrath of Grapes by J.A. Lang


Chef Maurice is back.  He gets him invited to dinner with wine collector Sir William Burton-Trent.
Chef likes food and wine he always seems to be eating or drinking.  During the evening Sir William has turned up missing.

Sir William is found dead in a lock wine cellar.  He has key in pocket and the other one is sealed in wax.  So he was alone in a high tech wine cellar.

Chef Maurice and Arthur Wordington-Smythe decide to solve the murder themselves.  They find out a lot about wine collecting even go to a auction.

Chef Maurice has his own restaurant.  He has a wine cellar in his restaurant and some of his customers even store some of their private wines down there.  He has a pet pig that he takes with him places.

Arthur Wordington-Smythe is a food critic and has lots of wine too.  He is good friends with Chef.

This is a fun cozy mystery.  I love the scene where the Chef gets stuck.  I thought he was smart the way he found out some of the answers while using the cat to help him.

I have never drunk any wine and still found this story interesting to learn about it and the world of collecting wine.

I was given this ebook to read for free and in return I agreed to give a honest review of Chef Maurice and the Wrath of Grapes.
