    The story begins high above Los Angeles, at the extravagant home and equally impressive wine cellar of entertainment lawyer Danny Roth. Unfortunately, after inviting the Los Angeles Times to write an extensive profile extolling the liquid treasures of his collection, Roth finds himself the victim of a world-class wine heist.

    A bad reader reads cliches

    Like many readers here, I have enjoyed Mr. Mayle's other work, but this was trite to the extreme and laden with cliches like, "What does a girl h..Show More »

    At the end of The Vintage Caper, Sam had just carried off a staggering feat of derring-do in the heart of Bordeaux, infiltrating the ranks of the French elite to rescue a stolen, priceless wine collection. With the questionable legality of the adventure. Sam thought it’d be a while before he returned to France, especially with the charms of the beautiful Elena Morales to keep him in Los Angeles. But when the immensely wealthy Francis Reboul asks our hero to take a job in Marseille, it’s impossible for Sam and Elena to resist the possibility of further excitement....

    Billionaire Francis Reboul is taking in the view at his coastal estate, awaiting the arrival of vacationing friends Sam Levitt and Elena Morales, when he spies a massive yacht whose passengers seem a little too interested in his property. The yacht belongs to rapacious Russian tycoon Oleg Vronsky, who, for his own purposes, will stop at nothing to obtain Reboul's villa.

    Not good

    Sorry, Mr. Mayle, as much as I love French inspired novels, this was not good. Very simplistic yet hard to follow. The story line and story telling ve..Show More »

    When a Riviera socialite's diamonds are stolen - the latest in a string of seemingly unconnected but ever-more-audacious jewelry heists across France - Elena flies in to investigate the insurance claim.

    A good "caper," atrocious narration

    Narrator's french pronunciation so wrong it's distracting. Where was the director on this? Erik Davies disappointing performance ruins an otherwise c..Show More »
