Praise For The Critic

"Another oenophile's tip sheet with the bonus of a finely crafted and surprising mystery."  --Kirkus Reviews

"Oenophiles and fans of CBS's Cold Case will relish May's slightly far-fetched second outing... a full-bodied, satisfying read." --Publisher's Weekly

"A sharp edged tale woven with the intricacy of a spider's web.  Intelligent, involved, and ingenious." -- Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author
