The Vineyard Victims

Book - 2017
Rate this:
"When Jamison Vaughn --Virginia real estate mogul, vineyard owner, and failed US presidential candidate --drives his gold SUV into a stone pillar at the entrance to Montgomery Estate Vineyard, Lucie Montgomery is certain the crash was deliberate. But everyone else in town is equally sure that Jamie must have lost control of the SUV on a rain-slicked country road. In spite of being saddled with massive campaign debts from the election, Jamie is seemingly the man with the perfect life. What possible reason could he have for committing suicide? Lucie soon uncovers a connection between Vaughn, his old friends (an elite group of academics), and a twenty-five year old murder of a brilliant PhD student. It turns out that this group all had motives for wanting the scientist dead, but that they were freed from suspicion when a handyman was arrested and convicted of the crime. But the more Lucie digs, the more convinced she becomes that this could be a case of wrongful conviction --possibly even a set-up. Lucie realizes she has now put herself in danger from someone who doesn't want her investigating Webb's death. She must work to solve two murders--one decades-old, one that proves intensely personal to Lucie --before someone silences her... for good"-- Provided by publisher.
