In the eighteenth century, an ominous letter sent to the La Romanée-Conti vineyard in Burgundy threatened to poison the grape-grower's vines unless a ransom was paid. Potter's blend of detail and storytelling becomes a treat with Donald Corren's gentle but dramatic narration. Reality takes on the feel of fiction as Corren builds atmosphere and tension with deliberation. Whether it's the gentle stillness of the vineyard itself or the historic plot, Corren sets the stage word by word. Even when he's reading the nuts and bolts, there's an echo of the story. This is a crime story that will fascinate, but it's also the story of a family and the place they loved for more than two centuries.
