Overview

An inheritance at risk and the discovery of an extraordinary cache of old wines during Nashville’s history-making flood leads to foul play and death in this Mark Rollins mystery adventure.

The old man finished a glass of wine—his favorite claret—went to bed, and died. Now more than fifty years later, a stunningly beautiful Nashville attorney, Ann Sims, is preparing to auction off his estate—a derelict old mansion with its long-forgotten secret. Sims has lived with a secret of her own, a secret that could cost her the fortune she is in line to inherit and end her career. Beautiful women can make poor choices in men. She is no exception. Afraid, for good reason, of the possessive and greedy men in her life, she turns to Mark Rollins for protection.

Rollins, the central character in Collins’ mysteries, is a modern-day hero—a protector, problem solver, and crime fighter. His “superhero-like” powers are technology, extraordinary wealth, and friends in high places. This time his technology is failing him as he tries to keep Ann Sims alive—his efforts thwarted by Nashville’s failing infrastructure in the wake of the massive storm and flood that provides cover for bad things.

Fast paced, great characters, entertaining read, especially if you know law firms, lawyers, wine and/or Nashville. Just as good as the previous three books in the Rollins series
