"A seamless blend of engaging mystery, insider travelogue, a primer in Italian traditions, and a guide to Italian food and viticulture in a narrative style that is easy and compelling." - Ambassador Magazine

Northern Italy is the cradle for a precious culinary gem: the white truffle of Piedmont.

Worth more than gold, the truffle is sought after by chefs and foodies alike. But this year, the truffle hunters are in a panic, as they discover that their usual harvest has been stolen from under their feet.

Inexplicably, the bodies of murdered hunters turn up, but there are no truffles to be found. A young man from Tuscany, in tow with his aunt and her restaurant crew, pursues the thieves through the hills of Piedmont, and the delicious wine and food of Italy.
