Two dead men. Two mysterious lists. And a Scottish wine expert with a nose for trouble.
A week before the fabulous Flight of Fancy Charity Auction in Sonoma, California, someone kills a counterfeiter concocting fakes of very expensive wine. Wine expert Sarah McKee is called in to help identify the victim—if she can. Whoever killed him took his wallet, car, and computer—as well as his face. What they didn’t take was a list in the dead man’s pocket—a mystifying series of numbers, circles and checkmarks.
Then a second man is killed, and the same list is found. Prints on the murder weapon point to Sarah’s friend, Zach Sullivan, who is struggling to put his world back together after his father gambled away the family winery. Zach is the only one with a motive for killing both men.
Determined to clear Zach’s name, Sarah teams up with a sexy, by-the-book sheriff to investigate the murders. But as they get closer to the truth, Sarah discovers the counterfeit ring will stop at nothing to protect their lucrative operation. Can Sarah figure out what the lists mean, catch the real killer at the auction, and save her friend?
