Canadian Author Launches New Mystery Novel Set In The Wine Industry

Press Release ( - EDMONTON, Alberta - Oct 16, 2016 - J. (Jack) H. Wear lives with his wife, Lorrie, in northern Alberta. They have three sons, and two grandsons. Logic notwithstanding, Lorrie blames Jack for the lack of females in the family.

Jack took up writing later than most authors. After finishing a career with Xerox, he soon felt bored and started selling beverages as a liquor agent. Over several glasses of Sauvignon Blanc, he wrote his first novel, submitted it and suddenly became a published author. This astonished everyone, especially every English teacher he had in school.

He continued with writing, adding a trilogy, along with several short stories. Most of his writing is in the fantasy and science fiction genres, although his latest novel is a murder mystery.

His current projects are a science fiction novel, a murder mystery and trying to convince his single sons their mother needs a granddaughter.

About A Taste of Murder

Oscar Detrick, a well-known sommelier and part owner of a wine agency, was not known for being a gentleman. Instead his attributes would include arrogant, lack of morals and using his oversized figure to intimidate others. Detrick also wrote a wine column in the local paper and was not above using the articles to enhance the sale of his wines and to torpedo the competition. It made Detrick a formidable man and he enjoyed the opportunity to use it.

The Stony Hills Wine Festival features hundreds of vendors sampling wine, beer and spirits to thousands of customers. On the morning of the second and final day of the event, Detrick suddenly collapses at his booth. He dies without anyone attempting first aid. His sudden demise came from the consumption of poison.

Detectives Moss Stone and Anya Roberts face the daunting task of going through a long list of suspects, including his business partner, ex-wives and other vendors. To solve the case, they immerse themselves in the world of the business of wine and wine shows. As the wine festival draws to a close, Stone and Roberts are in a race to catch the perpetrator before he or she can leave the city. And does the missing bag of garbage holds the clues they need to solve the murder?
