Detective David Knight lives in Birchwood, California. It is a small town in The Fiasco Valley of Elviño County, which is world famous for the wine it produces. The town seems idyllic until young, healthy, male, harvest workers start turning up dead. While trying to solve the crimes, David meets a beautiful Mexican woman and falls in love. Follow David as he does detective work in order to catch the killer, or killers, and solve the rash of murders. Keep following David as he runs from the drug cartels that have started their own country and as he escapes monumentally mad Martians.
David’s political views and psychological problems are often put on display and the results are rather amusing. It’s a hilarious and informative look at life in a dull town in a wealthy valley that is beset by murders . . . or is it?
Since this book doesn’t really fall into an established genre, the author came up with a new one. VD is a political sarcastic comedy, and so falls into the new “Polisarcasmedy” genre. It could become a huge, popular genre if our politicians don’t improve.
I think it is safe for me to write – based on the fact that I have read this novel – that it is the most unique, enchanting, peculiar book I have ever read or even heard of and it is utterly brilliant! Wow, now VD: Vintage Death is a story! As I read this book I could not turn the pages fast enough, I was hooked on the unique, humorous and funny nature of this book which is courtesy of the brilliant author, Geo Gosling. It is a sensational story, one that will easily stand out from the crowd and a story that most certainly cannot be defined thanks to its originality, and uniqueness.
VD: Vintage Death follows the star of the novel, Detective David Knight who serves in Birchwood, California. A town known as The Fiasco Valley of Elvino County is famous for the delicious and world-class wines it produces and a town that seems to be the perfect idyllic spot. The town is full of healthy, mostly young men who harvest the grapes for the wine but one day… in the classic and beautiful town, tragedy strikes. For some unknown reason, the young harvest workers are being murdered and are appearing all over.
This is where Detective David Knight steps in, he must try to solve the sinister and peculiar crimes to catch the killer(s) before it is too late and this book lovers, is the premise of this stellar book.
As I think back on the plot of this book all I can think about is how desperately I want to reread it! I feel like Vintage Death is the perfect book to be read twice as it is laced with little hints throughout as well as many funny moments that the reader may not pick up on the first reading. The story itself is worthy of a second read thanks to its brilliance and peculiarity, it is the kind of novel the reader will read and say to themselves “did that just happen?”. Yes, it is THAT kind of book, a peculiar, somewhat unbelievable, engrossing one that will hook its readers for many hours on end.
The story is one that gripped me from the beginning, I adore unique stories so Vintage Death was right up my street and the themes throughout it are brilliant so really, I was always destined to love this book. The novel has topics such as satire, action, humor, crime, bloody murders and of course wine! The wine knowledge in this novel is sensational but never does it overpower the story so that the book becomes a fact-based book. Instead, the wine facts are perfectly weaved into the plot so that the reader is given added information which relates to the general story. So thank you, Geo Gosling – the excellent author of this book – for weaving great themes together in the most flawless of ways!
Geo Gosling is a newly discovered author of mine, but gish did I wish I had discovered him before! His unique writing style combined with his compelling narrative had me hooked and gripped to the very end. As Vintage Death is a sensational, gripping story that is funny, unpredictable and memorable, I have no choice but to award this book Five Stars!
