Loyalty, betrayal, murder and merlot. Hidden away in a witness protection programme on an idyllic island vineyard in New Zealand, Vinnie Whitney-Ross could be forgiven for thinking he has escaped the clutches of the childhood friend a ruthless London mobster he helped convict for a gruesome double murder. But old grudges die hard, cops are bent, and the finest wines and chocolates find new and unexpected uses when Vinnie's present runs headlong into his secret past. From the mean streets of the East End to the sparkling waters of Auckland, this tale of switched identities, vengeful obsession and lethal ingenuity is as addictive as chocolate, with more twists than a corkscrew.

I think Julie Thomas has done a good job. Blood, Wine and Chocolate, once it gets going, is a very good read. She has given a vivid portrayal of how the lives of the 3 schoolboy friends played out against the background of organised crime in the back streets of London's East End and across the world to the vineyards of Waiheke Island in New Zealand.All the usual ingredients to make a good thriller are there - several gory murders, bribery and corruption-there's love too plus all the flavours - delicious food, wine, and chocolate along the way.
