From the Inside Flap
Lawyer and wine connoisseur, Sam Levitt's last adventure sent him to the South of France in search of a missing wine collection. He thought it would be a while before he was back, especially with the charms of the fiery Elena Morales to keep him settled in Los Angeles. But when the immensely wealthy Francis Reboul asks him to take a job in Marseille, it's impossible for Sam and Elena to resist. The lure of further excitement and the pleasures of the region beckon them back to France. Quelle joie! Yet as competition over Marseille's valuable waterfront grows more hotly disputed, Sam, representing Reboul, finds himself right in the middle, with intrigue and danger following closely behind.
