This week I received two great endorsement quotes for the book. Portions of both are going to be included on the cover when the book is released in December. Here they are:
“The Da Vinci Code meets Sideways in Darin Gibby’s debut novel, The Vintage Club. Gibby’s novel pits the obsession of one man to discover the secret of prolonging life against another man’s quest to discover the truth and to save his family’s life, as well as his own. Science and religion come together in this riveting tale of suspense. A group of the world’s richest men make up Vintage Club, the vinorati if you will, believing that wine made from an ancient varietal linked to the wine that Christ served the disciples can prolong life. Gibby weaves this unique premise into a well-plotted novel that has it all—strong characters, a protagonist in danger and out to save his family, and a time-winding-down ending that will keep you reading until you know what happens. The Vintage Club is not just a good debut novel; it is a good novel by any standard. If you enjoyed the Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, The Vintage Club was written for you.”
—Ron McManus, award-winning author of Libido’s Twist and The Drone Enigma.
“Just what we all wish for–a novel that thrillingly manifests our desire that the good times in life will never end. The Vintage Club has the makings of a new legend, one as universal as the on-going quest for the fountain of youth.”
—Shelley Fraser Mickle, author of Barbaro, America’s Horse and The Occupation of Eliza Goode.
