Description


Ex-NYPD homicide detective Nico Doyle investigates the murder of a local bartender in the Tuscan countryside.

On a late October Sunday morning in Gravigna, local maresciallo Perillo is having breakfast with ex-NYPD detective Nico Doyle when he is called back to the station in Greve. Laura Benati, the young manager of Hotel Bella Vista, is worried—her bartender and good friend eighty-year-old Cesare Costanzi has been missing for three days. 
 
The next morning, Jimmy, co-owner of Bar All’Angolo, Gravigna’s local café, where Nico is a frequent patron, runs out of gas on his way back from Florence. When Nico meets him to help, Nico’s dog, OneWag, reacts to the smell coming from Jimmy’s trunk. Inside Nico finds a body wrapped in plastic: Cesare Costanzi, stabbed several times in the chest.
 
Why would anyone kill Cesare, and how did he end up in Jimmy’s car? That’s for Nico to find out, as Perillo once again turns to Nico for help with the investigation.

Praise For…


Praise for Murder on the Vine

“If you enjoy both Stanley Tucci's Searching for Italy and Murder She Wrote, then read Murder on the Vine by Camilla Trinchieri. Delicious Italian food and wine wrapped up in a vibrant mystery complete with a dogged ex-NYPD detective and a loyal dog. Salute!”
—Carlene O'Connor, USA Today Bestselling author of the Irish Village mysteries

“Excellent . . . Rabelaisian feasts provide seasoning as the action builds to a festive, celebratory bar gala. Trinchieri makes crime solving adventuresome, fun, and flavorful. This is the best in the series so far. Bring on number four.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Fans of David P. Wagner’s Italian mysteries will appreciate the lush descriptions of food and wine in Trinchieri’s third atmospheric “Tuscan Mystery.” The complicated personal relationships (helpfully elucidated in the book’s list of characters) add to the enjoyment.”
Library Journal

“A clever, colorful cozy with a decidedly Italian flavor.”
Kirkus Reviews

Praise for the Tuscan Mystery series

“Just the ticket for anyone wanting to escape to Bella Italia with an engaging and entertaining mystery.”
—David Hewson, author of the bestselling Nic Costa series and The Garden of Angels
 
“With a simpatico protagonist, a cast of sometimes quirky characters, and the ever-present aromas of Tuscan dishes, what's not to like?”
—David P. Wagner, author of the Rick Montoya Italian mysteries

“If Agatha Christie had been Italian, she might’ve written a mystery like The Bitter Taste of Murder . . . This novel has a beautifully delicious, celebratory ending that made me want to return to Italy in the next installment of Camilla Trinchieri’s expertly written Tuscan Mystery series.”
