Wine and Crime: R.M. Cartmel talks about his new crime novel and discusses the wines of Burgundy with Philip Amps from Amps Fine Wines of Oundle.
Queen Victoria Hall, Oundle
Presented by Oundle Festival of Literature
After a long and successful career as a GP in Peterborough, R. M. Cartmel decided to dedicate himself to his other passion of writing. The Richebourg Affair, is the first part of a trilogy and is Cartmel's debut novel. It combines two of his lifelong loves-writing and traveling throughout France's exquisite Burgundy region.
Commandant Charlemagne Truchaud of the Paris police is used to dealing with villainy and violence in the French capital. But when he is summoned home to Burgundy on the death of his brother, Truchaud faces the hard realization that crime isn't limited to the big city. There is something sinister simmering under the serene surface of the quaint and quiet village of Nuits-Saint Georges. Beneath this magnificent setting lurks an unseemly underbelly of theft, fraud, deceit…and cold-blooded murder.
As he digs deeper and deeper into the mystery, Truchaud discovers that, for some people, Richebourg, quite literally, is a wine to die for….
Come and hear about this tantalizing tale that unfolds in the vineyards of Burgundy, sample some wines and savour the conversation, you'll find that The Richebourg Affair is as marvellous as the wine!
