"When Cal's neighbor, Jim Kavanaugh, the owner and gifted vintner of an up-and-coming winery, is accused of murdering his wife, his freedom--and the grape harvest--is suddenly in jeopardy along with his reputation, and his business begins to slide. No gentleman farmer, this puts the rugged winemaker's property, his only financial asset, in play. When a blackmail plot is hatched against the owner of adjacent land, it begins to look like a brutal game of real-life Monopoly is underway. Cal agrees to defend Jim, a good friend, which pulls him reluctantly into the blackmail plot. Emotions are running high over Lori Kavanaugh's bloody death. There is no shortage of suspects. There may be more than the one game in play. And defending Jim might well make Cal the next target of a vicious, cunning killer."-- Provided by publisher.

At one point in this book, Cal Claxton says that his penchant for accepting clients who are unlikely to pay is payback for his previous hard charging prosecutorial career. He certainly seems to be giving his accountant a lot of misgivings in this case. As the story unravels, it seems that almost everyone in the neighborhood is involved in some way--blackmail, killings, burglary. Cal's friend, Nando, has many of his agents out tracking people, the police are doing their best of figure out what is going on, and friends of the accused are pressed into service to add to the information collected. Cal is faced with so many people who seem to be involved, that he has difficulty figuring out how they are all connected, and he needs medical patching up several times. This is a real page turner. Exciting to the end.
