Book Review: The Vintage Club by Darin Gibby

The Vintage ClubThe Vintage Club by Darin Gibby

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Darin Gibby gives us a new entry into the growing corpus of Da Vinci Code novels where something from the Biblical past plays a huge role in today's world.

Do not think Gibby copied early entries in the subgenre. His The Vingage Club is a unique contribution. Take a cabal of international billionaires seeking immortality by trying to recreate the wine served at the Last Supper. Strong belief that ancient grape seeds can grow into vineyards that produce an elixir of eternal life drive this cabal to cheat, scheme and murder to keep its secret, well, secret.

When a benefactor and friend of a member of the group files a patent application that threatens the secret, people die. Another is framed.

The action is fast paced as one would expect from a thriller, yet there are small pauses for the reader to reflect and catch her breath. A quick read good for a rainy day or a sunny day. Oh, heck. This is a good read for any day.
