Recipe for Homicide

(The first book in the Dr. Daniel Webster Coffee Mysteries series)
A novel by

A public relations man finds himself in hot water when murder is added to the mix at the soup company where he works. Luckily, Dr. Coffee is on the case.
After crowning a Carrot Queen—the fastest carrot peeler at the factory—the Barzac Soup Company is on a public relations roll under director Robert Gilmore. It plans to raise its profile—and stock price—even higher by introducing field rations for the US Army. But when an employee drops dead hours after tasting the field rations, Gilmore has a PR nightmare on his hands . . .
With his job on the line, Gilmore seeks the help of pathologist Dr. Daniel Webster Coffee, a man who enjoys good food as much as the unassailable practice of good medicine. But what he discovers raises the stakes: The victim died of arsenic poisoning. The rations could have been deliberately sabotaged as an act of war. As tensions reach a boiling point, Gilmore finds his past, his heart, and his life on the line��. . .
“Blochman fans generally tend to think of him as more intellectual than the average pulp author, and based on one book, we can’t disagree. Recipe is scientific detection, and plenty detailed enough for readers who like that sort of thing . . . for 1954, this is nuanced stuff.” —Pulp International
