Publisher's Summary

Set in the heart of Tuscan wine country, Camilla Trinchieri's new mystery introduces Nico Doyle, a former NYPD homicide detective who's just looking for space to grieve when he finds himself pulled into a local murder investigation.

Mourning the loss of his wife, Rita, former NYPD homicide detective Nico Doyle moves to her hometown of Gravigna in the winesoaked region of Chianti. Half Italian and half Irish, Nico finds himself able to get by in the region with the help of Rita’s relatives, but he still feels alone and out of place. He isn’t sure if it’s peace he’s seeking, but it isn’t what he finds. Early one morning, he hears a gunshot and a dog's cries near his cabin and walks out to discover a dead body in the woods, flashily dressed in gold tennis shoes. When the police arrive, Nico hastily adopts the fluffy white dog as his own and wants nothing more to do with the murder. 

But Salvatore Perillo, the local maresciallo, discovers Nico's professional background and enlists him to help with the case. It turns out more than one person in this idyllic corner of Italy knew the victim, and with a very small pool of suspects, including his own in-laws, Nico must dig up Gravigna’s every last painful secret to get to the truth.

Good read!

Italian-customs, Italy, law-enforcement, family-dynamics, friendship, murder-investigation, muted-humor

A widowed ex-NYPD detective moves to Tuscany where he has good memories and his wife's family. remember the adage about taking the man out of the job? Well, he not only is the first human to find the body, but is asked for his unofficial expertise by the local head of the Carabinieri. Good thing it's unofficial because this convoluted case comes much to close to the family. But at least he still has his day job helping with the family restaurant and learning to cook some very fine dishes in the Tuscan manner. And learning to parent a very inquisitive and smart street dog. Once the victim seems to be identified the case finds even more twists and misdirections with even a red herring or three. EXCELLENT!
I requested and received a free ebook copy from Soho Press/Soho Crime via NetGalley. Thank you!
Now I have the audio! Angelo Di Loreto has a very pleasant voice I enjoy, and I like that he has natural Italian pronunciations.

Get Me To Chianti

I really enjoyed this book as the story while building slowly was quite interesting. Additionally the performance was excellent and the food and wine descriptions enticing.

Dry and Dark

The narrator's "whistling" s's were very distracting and he had a brooding, dark delivery, throughout. I was expecting a mix of drama and interesting character and location development and only got relatively dry drama.
Overall the story kept my attention, but the ending was poorly developed and left me dissatisfied with a number of unanswered questions.

Surprisingly good.

Great narration. The narrator has the perfect male voice but can actually do the females voices without making them sound insipid. Love the descriptions of the food. I hope this is the beginning of a series.
