Sharpshooter: A Sunny McCoskey Napa Valley Mystery

Nadia Gordon, Author, Nada Gordon, Author Chronicle Books $11.95 (272p) ISBN 978-0-8118-3462-9
The scion of a wine family is found murdered; chef Sunny McCoskey's friend Wade Skord is a prime suspect; and the glassy-winged sharpshooter (an insect) is threatening Napa Valley produce, not to mention Sunny's organic restaurant, in Sharp Shooter, Nadia Gordon's tale of land fever and love gone bad in the promised land. The personable McCoskey navigates wine country denizens and six-burner stoves with equal aplomb, and foodies and oenophiles especially will enjoy Gordon's blend of solid suspense and gourmet culture.
