Publisher's Summary

Ben Adler recently retired from the Air Force, settling into his rural Western Oregon family home following the death of his parents. When Portland lawyer Maggi McGuffin suddenly shows up at Ben's off-the-grid hobby farm, he is skeptical of her intentions. But she agrees to get the IRS and EPA off his back for a little investigative work.  

In the Air Force, Ben worked as a special agent with the Office of Special Investigations, their version of the FBI and CIA. He spent years interrogating terrorists and debriefing airmen. Strange things are happening in normally sedate Cantina Valley. In his quest for answers, Ben must sift through a cast of quirky characters and unknown entities with hidden agendas.  

Does his investigation have anything to do with a recent murder? Ben must unravel a case as complex as a fine Oregon pinot noir to discover the truth.

LOVED it....can't WAIT for #2 in this series!!

The characters and dialogue were very realistic and well-developed. The plot was complicated enough to keep you guessing. Left enough loose ends to make me anxious to get the next book in this series. The narration was great....the reader got just the right level of sarcasm in his voice to perfectly display the "smart-ass" side of the hero.
