Synopsis: "Marta thought she knew everything there was to know about her grandma. Problem is…as her grandma lay dying, she warns Marta to be careful; very careful. The only problem is, Marta doesn’t know what she means.
Then, her will is read and things get more confusing for Marta. Secrets she didn’t know her grandma kept, treasures she didn’t know her grandma possessed, and people turning up murdered all for a piece of art…and Marta still doesn’t know how or why her grandma is connected.
It takes a trip from San Francisco to Venice to figure out what’s going on. After all, Marta’s grandma knew about the secrets in the vineyards…or did she?"
