Benjamin Cooker is still eating, drinking, and smoking his was through life, accompanied by his faithful assistant , the randy Virgile. In this outing, Cooker is charged with establishing the status of a Cognac-Producing family- held company. When one of the principals is found floating in the river, Cooker turns his sharp eye to the many suspects at hand. I enjoy the sensory aspect of the series; the wine, the scenery, the scents and sounds of France seem real to me.
