His circle of friends is made up of winemakers, Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers, restaurant managers, and wine distributors from all over the globe. He is now working on his next novel.
An entertaining, wine-soaked mystery." - Kirkus Reviews
"Root Cause is a pithy, pitch-perfect story... Having traveled toover one hundred vineyards and wineries, and after many years of working in the wine industry, it's safe to say that Laine knows his grapes. Root Cause is the perfect application of Laine's extensive knowledge of vineyards, and is, to boot, a thoroughly researched story that will both educate and entertain readers." -★★★★★, Red City Review
"This cleverly titled novel is a very compelling mystery through and through with a twist that you'll never see coming. The plot is one complex enough to keep you on your toes yet easy enough not to oversaturate the reader, creating an exciting and page-turning story..." - The US Review
"(a) glamorous thriller" - Foreword Reviews
