Savory Tales of Culinary Crimes
(A book in the Murder Most... series)
An anthology of stories edited by

What a grand love affair people have with food. It is the only thing that can simultaneously delight all five senses. Some people's appetite for food is only exceeded by their appetite for crime. As our demand for creative dishes has increased, so has the opportunity for evil epicureans to combine their talent for wickedness and their love of good food and drink to lay their victims low in one fell swoop with nothing more than a well-cooked meal or specially concocted libation. This menu of eighteen stories of culinary crimes and death beckons everyone. Readers must quiet any hunger pangs before turning the pages; the meals described are often worth dying for. As an added bonus, a recipe pertinent to each story's flavour is included. The courses served are: "The Last Bottle in the World" by Stanley Ellin * "Takeout" by Joyce Christmas * "The Case of the Shaggy Caps" by Ruth Rendell * "The Cassoulet" by Walter Satterthwait * "Tea for Two" by M. D. Lake * "The Second-Oldest Profession" by Linda Grant * "Connoisseur" by Bill Pronzini * "Gored" by Bill Crider * "Day for a Picnic" by Edward D. Hoch * "Guardian Angel" by Caroline Benton * "The Main Event" by Peter Crowther * "The Deadly Egg" by Janwillem van de Wetering * "Dead and Breakfast" by Barbara Collins * "Recipe for a Happy Marriage" by Nedra Tyre * "Death Cup" by Joyce Carol Oates * "Poison Peach" by Gillian Linscott * "Of Course You Know That Chocolate is a Vegetable" by Barbara D'Amato * "Poison a la Carte" by Rex Stout Tuck in your napkin, polish your knife and fork, and dive into this eighteen-course feast of Murder Most Delectable.
