Winery owner Olivier Bonnard is devastated when he discovers that a priceless cache of rare vintages has been stolen from his private cellar. Soon after, Monsieur Gilles d'Arras arrives at Aix-en-Provence's Palais de Justice to report another mysterious disappearance: his wife, Pauline, has vanished from their lavish apartment. Madame has always been as tough as nails, but in recent weeks she's been wandering around town in her slippers and crying for no reason. As the mistral arrives to temper the region's late-summer heat, Commissioner Paulik receives an urgent call from Bonnard: he's just found Pauline d'Arras dead in his vineyard. Verlaque and Bonnet are once again investigating in what will prove to be their most complicated case yet.

This is supposed to be a cozy, but with two murders and one rape/murder it does not qualify. The story exists to tour Provencal, taste wines, gormandize, and smoke expensive cigars. There are way too many characters, and Verlaque and Bonnet, by this third book in the series, come off as rich, privileged sophisticates rather than sleuths.
