Root Cause by Steven Laine

 

October 25, 2018 (Nashville, TN) – Turner Publishing announced today the upcoming publication of a new Mystery/Thriller novel for February 2019, Root Cause, by Steven Laine.

 

In Root Cause, Steven Laine pairs his experience in the wine industry with his passion for writing and world travel to create a mysterious international thriller that will have wine lovers all over the world on the edge of their seat.

 

Synopsis:

 

Can you imagine a world without wine?

 

Corvina Guerra is a flying winemaker who dreams of one day settling down in her native Italy on her family’s vineyard. On a visit to a vineyard in Italy, Corvina makes a startling discovery: Phylloxera, a menacing plant louse that devastated vineyards in Europe more than a hundred years ago, has infested the vines.

 

The deeper Corvina and Brian search, the more they become convinced that Universal Wines holds the answer to everything, and the harder they pursue their investigation the more surprises pile up for both of them.

 

In spite of devastating consequences, Corvina and Brian vow to continue their investigation and do what they can to contain the spread of the infestation – but time is running short and they always seem to be a step behind. Unless they can find a way to stop the attacks – vineyards around the world will be ruined for decades; potentially causing the collapse of the wine industry. Can Corvina and Brian get to the root cause and save the international wine industry from ruin?
