Cooked to Death: Tales of Crime and Cookery

People can be passionate about food. In Cooked to Death that passion is whipped into a murderous froth. Each story revolves around some aspect of food: its origin, preparation, consumption and, in some cases, its convenience as a murder weapon. Appetizers, entrees, salads, desserts--they're all here. It's a delectable menu, served up by some of the region's finest crime and mystery writers. And each story is accompanied by a recipe or two that have been tried and proven entirely non-lethal. Rare or well-done, piquant or bland, sugary sweet or a little on the dry side, no matter, these tales will leave you drooling for more. Crime has never been this tasty.
