Two aging detectives, one Italian, one German, through luck and some good police work stumble upon a plot to control the world's food supply.
Will they be able to build their case, or will sinister forces put an end to their investigation?
Follow these two dedicated, but flawed, civil servants as they risk their lives (and vacations) pursuing a mysterious ultra-orthodox sect and their Machiavellian puppet master, know only as The Builder. Will they succeed? Only time will tell.
"Gilbert has developed characters you both love and hate, no easy task, and put them in a sumptuous world of wine and food where they continue to surprise you, as you are absorbed in this page turner. A great read. Your flight better be long enough to finish it or they will have to drag you off the plane."
