Victim in the Vineyard

Jessica Fletcher is visiting the Napa Valley wine country while doing research for her next book, and invites her old friend, Scotland Yard detective George Sutherland to join her at a cozy Bed and Breakfast. No sooner do they arrive than they find the valley abuzz over the murder of a waiter at the restaurant owned by infamous ex-Hollywood heavyweight Bill Ladington. Ladington's blatant womanizing and involvement in a bitter vineyard land dispute have already marked him as a dubious character and a possible suspect.

But when Ladington turns up dead himself from a supposed suicide, Jessica knows that a murderer is on the loose and with a little help from George, she must try and bottle up a motive for murder from an extensive list of less-than-vintage suspects
