The Drowned Phoenician Vintner
Dead Guns Press Presents Harley Mazuk, author of the Frank Swiver stories 'Ice' and 'Joes Last Scratch', presents one of Swivers most bizarre cases to date: The Drowned Phoenician Vintner.
1949 San Francisco. Private eye, Frank Swiver, knows his way around the dames, the dark streets and exotic cars. He is also known for having a taste for rare and unique wines. He is hired to verify the authenticity of some bottles for a collector, which leads him to the sunny vineyards Contra Costa County. Once there, he discovers there is a darker side to the wine trade.
While dealing with a priceless collection, Vera, Swiver's girl, finds the vineyard owner floating face down in the estate pool. He knows that he is dealing with more than a simple case of murder. Swiver is soon faced with mystery women, double crosses, and hoodlums that could well get them killed.
Then there is the mysterious and beautiful Helene Richter....
Is the recently widowed woman merely a blonde who can't keep her clothes on - or is she a dangerous ex-Nazi nymphomaniac with a taste for murder? Is the vineyard owner's death over the rare bottles of vintage wines or is it all about the money involved?
Or are Frank and Vera doomed to the same fate as...The Drowned Phoenician Vintner?
