A Michael Spraggue Mystery by the author of "Dead Heat."



Michael Spraggue, a wealthy private eye turned movie actor, is in the middle of making a trashy Hollywood movie about - what else? - a private eye, when he gets a phone call from his sometime lover and current business partner in a California winery, Kate Holloway.



Kate has troubling news. Not only has Lenny Brent, their volatile winemaker, vanished, but an unidentifiable corpse has appeared - and Kate's the prime suspect!



Spraggue hurries over in time to discover a second dead body - that of Lenny. Can Spraggue solve this vintage mystery before he finds himself corked ?
