HIS JOB IS FINDING THE PERFECT SPICE
HIS GIFT IS SOLVING THE PERFECT CRIME
The Gourmet Detective doesn't carry a gun and he doesn't have a license to prowl--his specialty is piecing together ancient recipes and tracking down obscure ingredients to make his clients' sauces sing. But when Scotland Yard volunteers him for a case of murder most foul, how can he say no? After all, he was at the scene of the gourmet London luncheon of foodie experts, the exclusive Circle of Careme, and he saw Ivor Jenkinson fall to the floor--dead of food poisoning.
Although Ivor, an investigative TV journalist was loathed as thoroughly as hot dogs in a four-star restaurant, the question of who killed him remains a mystery. As the Gourmet Detective turns up the heat to smoke out a killer, what he discovers are rivalries on the rocks, kitchen cabinet sabotage, and a perfectly dishy policewoman with very good taste. Until a clever killer puts a second mistake on the menu.
