He soon discovers unpredictable, new abilities which reveal new mysteries in the Gambaro family history.

Joe's friends in the local wine industry discover deception and deceit in the dealings of a multinational conglomerate whose legitimate, if immoral and predatory, bulk wine production and import business is really a cover for a far more sinister trade.

Coming 2009: The Order of Zin, Elixir:

Read Elixir, the next book in the Order of Zin series.  Joe Gambaro crosses paths with an obscure wine cult with ties to the Aztecs and the Fountain of Youth. Amazingly enough, he learns how the winery behind the cult is producing enormously popular, maybe even addictive wines, that cause isolated cases of criminal insanity.  His friends discover some of the sinister secrets of this cult and their special wines.  Joe then learns of the existence of a mysterious group known as the Order of Zin.  Look for “The Zin Avenger, Elixir” to be released by California Wine Publishing in 2009.
