Nightmare in Burgundy

Wine Plus Crime in Burgundy Wine Country


"A fun and informative take on the cozy crime mystery, French style."

The amateur sleuth Winemaker Detective leaves his native Bordeaux to go to Burgundy for a dream wine tasting trip to France's other key wine-making region. Between Beaune, Dijon and Nuits-Saint-Georges, it turns into a troubling nightmare when he stumbles upon a mystery revolving around messages from another era. What do they mean? What dark secrets from the deep past are haunting the Clos de Vougeot? Does blood need to be shed to sharpen people's memory? A made-for-TV series.

Jean-Pierre Alaux and Noel Balen, wine lover and music lover respectively, came up with the idea for the Winemaker Detective series while sharing a meal, with a bottle of Chateau Gaudou 1996, a red wine from Cahors with smooth tannins and a balanced nose.

"Those who like detective stories that rely on the fine qualities of the investigator will find Cooker an enjoyable lead." - Publishers Weekly

"Well-crafted, as always, so an enjoyable read ...I enjoyed the richness of immersion by the details... Another book I'm happy to recommend." - A Student of Opinion

"A fine vintage forged by the pens of two very different varietals. It is best consumed slightly chilled, and never alone. You will be intrigued by its mystery, and surprised by its finish, and it will stay with you for a very long time." - Prize-winning, bestselling author Peter May

"I finished it in one sitting! I learned so much about wine making... But more than that is was a good little mystery - nothing wasted. The book would be perfect for a book club to have a 'wine' night." - Bless Your Hearts Mom

"I love good mysteries. I love good wine. So imagine my joy at finding a great mystery about wine, and winemaking, and the whole culture of that fascinating world. And then I find it's the first of a series. I can see myself enjoying many a bottle of wine while enjoying the adventures of Benjamin Cooker in this terrific new series." - William Martin, New York Times bestselling author of Back Bay and The Lincoln Letter
