First review:
Mike Gill has woven a together an engaging mystery that centers on the international trade that is the whisky industry.

The story is international in scope spanning two continents and large cities such as Toronto and Las Vegas while at the same time very local, focusing on smaller towns and villages including life centered around a small distillery on the Isle of Bute in Scotland.

Throughout the book the story there are frequent references to places, restaurants and hotels with intriguing details that make one want to visit them and mentions of drinks and foods that make you want to hop a plane and experience them first hand.

I really enjoyed the numerous details of places and foods all tied together with interesting characters and a flowing narrative.

As I read the book I was reminded of another author’s whose art of storytelling that I greatly admire - Peter Mayle. If you enjoyed the A Year in Provence or The Marseille Caper you will love this.

Highly recommended.
