Monsieur Giroux is not a happy man. Of course, who could be happy while discussing the death of their son? Without an heir, his Chateau Giroux winery in California will be inherited by another family member, its grapes plowed under to make way for a lucrative real estate deal. Yet Giroux believes that his son may still be alive and hires MacTaggart to investigate.

In The Last Heir, the third entry in the Shamus Award-nominated series of Jack MacTaggart legal mysteries, author (and sometimes vigneron) Chuck Greaves blends themes of greed and vanity, rivalry and revenge, bottles them with an unexpected murder, and pours forth a plummy magnum of page-turning mystery about a privileged but deeply dysfunctional American family.

Praise for The Last Heir

Past Praise:
“Cleverly intermingles equestrian show jumping, insurance claims, and high-tech science in this sunny California thriller. Great readalikes for tone would be Jack Fredrickson and Spencer Quinn.”—Library Journal (starred review) on Hush Money
“An auspicious debut. Jack would be welcome back in the winner’s circle anytime.” —Kirkus Reviews on Hush Money
