Product Description

"Someone is trying to ruin us. Junior and I have poked around but haven't come up with anything. Our attorney had someone look into it, but came up with nothing. I need a professional. A man with imagination, and guts. Your uncle says you're that kind of man. Can you help me, Mr. Polo?"

It sounds like a fun-filled weekend in the country when Nick Polo's reporter friend Jane Tobin invites him up to Sonoma County for the gala opening of the Baroni Estates sparkling wine facility. But the festivities are soon over for Polo as Angelo Baroni, Sr., drags him away to enlist his professional assistance.

Now semi-retired, Baroni has been able to hold his wine empire together through some tough times: prohibition, recessions, droughts, and foreign take-over attempts. But once again it's under attack, and now someone is upping the stakes to sabotage and arson. The suspects include Baroni's philandering son, his sharpshooting daughter-in-law, and Victor Mardesa, a former casino operator who was cold-shouldered out of Nevada by the mob. As the campaign progresses to kidnapping and murder, both Polo and Jane Tobin find their own lives at risk. And it's up to Polo to sort everything out before it's too late.

Praise for Jerry Kennealy and the Nick Polo series:

Green With Envy

"The sixth Nick Polo story again blends the Pi's wry commentary on modern society—especially as experienced in San Francisco—with fast- paced adventure to create a thoroughly entertaining romp."
Publishers Weekly

"A fine entry in this underrated series."
Kirkus Reviews

Polo's Wild Card

"Kennealy has a knack for weaving local scandal with San Francisco topography... Add to this the latest methods in picking locks, buying burglar gloves, computer hacking (private-eye style), and use of criminal indexes... we get quite a bit for our money from ex-con and ex-cop Polo."
San Francisco Chronicle

"Polo's at his most raffishly amusing throughout... Highly recommended for people who read mysteries for the detective's company...."
Kirkus Reviews

Polo in the Rough

"Diverting caper featuring PI Nick Polo... Kennealy, a PI himself, weaves a series of twists and turns that reveal a sure-handed knowledge of detective work."
Publishers Weekly

"Kennealy's finely crafted stories always hold my interest. Never a wasted word."
San Francisco Examiner
