Description
Hailed by critics at the Los Angeles Times Book Review and the Washington Post Book World for this series that "cross-pollinates Susan Orlean's The Orchid Thief with Peter Mayle's A Year in Provence," Michelle Wan returns with the third outing for orchid lover Julian Wood and his girlfriend Maria Dunn. Now living together in an uneasy, on-and-off way, Wood and Dunn don't realize how close they are to losing each other permanently, when Julian's unerring understanding of the orchid lover's mind reveals a killer.

"Any mystery writer who can elicit outrage over the use of orchids to produce the Turkish answer to Viagra can persuade readers of just about anything.... Entertaining and witty, [Wood and Dunn] operate in a tiny village within a region that Wan brings vividly alive—the Dordogne in southwestern France.... In the latest serving of orchid lore and murder, a body found in the ruins of the ancient Roman temple of Vesunna is linked to the illegal selling of salep, an aphrodisiac dependent on the harvesting of 30 million orchids a year. Great for atmosphere and orchid lore."—Booklist
