This mystery (written by the restaurant critic of the WASHINGTON POST) follows the attempts of a food critic (for a fictitious Washington paper) to play investigative reporter and solve two murders linked to a new restaurant in town. What starts as an effort to clear a popular chef soon uncovers activities with ramifications that reach far beyond food and drink. Susan O'Malley is an enthusiastic narrator who finds a tone that reflects the blend of naïveté and sophistication of her main character. She brings just as much interest and enthusiasm to the descriptions of food as she brings to the intrigue that runs through the story. Her characterizations of the supporting characters also add interest and dimension to the reading. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
