We will be discussing Death of a Wine Merchant by David Dickinson. This is a British historical mystery set in Victorian England and France with fine prose and a complex plot. A son of the Colvilles, who are wealthy wine merchants, is about to marry the daughter of the even grander Nash family. Immediately after the wedding, the bridegroom’s Uncle Cosmo is found clutching a gun over the body of his brother. He refuses to give any explanation, even to his attorney, who retains Lord Francis Powerscourt to investigate.
Vintner's Winery is located in the Golden Gate Shopping Complex across from Mettetal Airport in the SE corner of Joy and Lilley Rds.
