Slick, slimy, and completely without conscience, Ringo Laurenge has the right stuff to be a great reporter—and the most hated man at the Washington Examiner. Even food editor Chas Wheatley wants to strangle him for trying to steal her story on America’s priciest restaurants. Other staffers have reasons to want to kill him too. Not surprisingly, someone does.

Now, while Chas shares delicious tidbits about today’s trendiest eateries, she sifts through clues and sniffs out suspects—until the evidence cuts close to the bone and implicates a person Chas admires, or even loves.

Food critic Richman serves up another culinary whodunit filled with lots of juicy insider information.

    " Great for a view of DC restaurants; would love to read Phyllis writing in the third person. Some awkward didactic passages about waiters' income, restaurant reviewing and other flashes of Phyllis's former newspaper-writing trade. "

    " less a mystery than a foodie/restaurant novel, centering upon newsroom competition and backstabbing and insider culinary dope. "
