(From the publisher):
Jessica Fletcher is visiting the Napa Valley wine country while doing research for her next book, and she invites her old friend, Scotland Yard detective George Sutherland, to join her at a cozy bed-and-breakfast. No sooner do they arrive than they find the valley abuzz over the murder of a waiter at the restaurant owned by infamous ex-Hollywood heavyweight Bill Ladington. Ladington's blatant womanizing and involvement in a bitter vineyard land dispute have already marked him as a dubious character - and a possible suspect.
But when Ladington himself turns up dead from a supposed "suicide" Jessica knows that a murderer is on the loose - and with a little help from George, she must try to distill a motive for murder from an extensive list of less-than-vintage suspects...
