Mourning the loss of his wife, Rita, former NYPD homicide detective Nico Doyle moves to her hometown of Gravigna in the wine-soaked region of Chianti. Half-Italian and half-Irish, Nico finds himself able to get by in the region with the help of Rita's relatives, but he still feels alone and out of place. He isn't sure if it's peace he's seeking, but it isn't what he finds. Early one morning, he hears a gunshot near his cabin and walks out to discover a dead body in the woods, flashily dressed in gold tennis shoes. A small white dog at the scene won't leave Nico alone, so he lies to the police and claims to be its owner. Salvatore Perillo, the local maresciallo, enlists Nico's help with the murder case. It turns out more than one person in this idyllic corner of Italy knew the victim, and with a very small pool of suspects, including his own in-laws, Nico must dig up Gravigna's every last painful secret to get to the truth.… (més)

Despite a violent killing at the beginning this is a mellow read. The story is filled with interesting characters, a sound plot and the spectacular backdrop of Tuscany -- it's lifestyle and culture. The murder mystery is a puzzle that is only resolved in the last chapter. Many secrets among the cast prevent an early solution to the crime. Dani the junior cop and Rocco/OneWag the dog are standouts. It's a book to read and enjoy. ( )

I had a whirlwind trip to Italy this week. I visited with the locals over breakfast, tasted some fabulous meals, and attended a wine festival. Of course, every minute of it was imaginary, but it was still highly enjoyable. If you’re in the mood for a change of scene, I highly recommend Murder in Chianti by Camilla Trinchieri. Interestingly enough, she also publishes mysteries as Camilla T. Crespi.

Attention, dog lovers! A stray mutt with impeccable manners has a starring role in this book. ( )

Nico, a former NY homicide detective, has been fired and moved back to his wife's hometown in Italy. When he hears the frantic barking of a stray, he follows the sound to a dead body--a man with his face shot off. Local carabinieri are in over their heads, but Nico is torn between the lure of investigating and the peace of small town life. While the murder weaves the story together, the true essence is in the lives of the various people affected by this and old tragedies.

Very enjoyable. Loved the food descriptions and Italian phrases. ( )

This excellent debut mystery features former NYPD police detective Nico Doyle who moves to his deceased wine's Italian town. A small dog alerts him to a problem in some wooded property adjoining his own. He calls the local carabinieri when he discovers a murdered man. Nico, fired from his position and with no other remaining family, moved near his wife's family where he helps them with a restaurant. He loves culinary experimentation. When Perillo, the local maresciallo, discovers Nico's background, he asks for his unofficial assistance in the investigation. In spite of his request for assistance, Perillo does appear to be a competent investigator. I loved this book which reminds me of Martin Walker's Bruno series with an Italian rather than French setting. I look forward to reading the next in series. ( )
