Publisher's Summary

Felix Hart is back, in the thrilling, wine-soaked sequel to Corkscrew.

Hart, a wine buyer at the top of his game, finds himself compromised by a ruthless, multi-national drinks corporation. Forced to participate in a high-profile, corrupt wine tasting, Hart is drawn into a terrifying game of cat-and-mouse, pursued by blackmailers, assassins, and organic wine fanatics. The action moves from the Byzantine intrigue of the Minstrels of Wine to France’s most glamorous chateaux, Hart relying on his quick wits, fine palate and a touch of muscle to stay ahead of his enemies. But he meets his match in Lily Tremaine, a beautiful and passionate sommelier, who disrupts his easy, pleasure-seeking life and turns his world upside down.

Brut Force is the second Felix Hart novel and the sequel to Corkscrew, the 2018 People's Book Prize finalist.

It was a great romp through the vineyards

Narration was well done and the characters were easily distinguishable.
The story was a hoot the only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the main characters arrogance about his physical charms and libido becomes a bit redundant. He is fun though likeable enough you want him to come back in another book and dislikeable enough you dont mind when he gets the occasional kick in the balls. His roommates are my favorites they are always there for a friend man.

More Hilarious Adventures of Minstrel Hart

If you liked Corkscrew, you’ll certainly like this one as well. Peter Stafford-Bow’s impeccable sense of satire shines in this hilarious sequel. I only hope there is a third! Cheers to you, Felix Hart!

Ridiculous, frothy nonsense - with a kick of truth

I enjoyed this silly story, following the mostly very unlikely adventures of Felix Hart, as much as I did the first - which was quite a lot. The acidic reality regarding the wine industry helps balance the splendidly over-the-top richness of the comedy and somewhat baroque tragedy. I'll have another one, please!

A cracking book!

Loved this funny follow up to Corkscrew. Really rooting for Felix as he tells his tale over a wine or ten! Recommend you download for a light hearted romp through the darker side of the wine world.

For wine lovers

Another interesting read from Peter Stafford-Bow. Having enjoyed ‘Corkscrew’ I thought I would give ‘Brut Force’ a go too - maybe I should have allowed more time between reads, as it seemed it didn’t quite achieve the same easy ‘pour’ as ‘Corkscrew’. However it was good and the narration by the author himself is excellent.
