Barbara Whitehead's York is a place history and travel enthusiasts are sure to love: a medieval city in the shadow of the breathtaking York Minster. And, each day, the tantalizing smell of chocolate pervades the cobblestone streets, for York is also the home of Benns, maker of delectable candies. Pierre Fontaine is a charming Belgian with an unbeatable flair for chocolates. His delicious concoctions have made Benns England's favorites. Now Fontaine is back in York and ready to begin testing his new, top-secret Recipe 179. But Fontaine doesn't get very far. Only days after his arrival, he disappears from the locked and guarded factory, his treasured Rolls-Royce left abandoned in the car park. Police Inspectors Dave Smart and Bob Southwell agree that something is very wrong, but is it industrial espionage? Kidnapping? Murder, even? Without evidence of foul play, they're hardpressed to say what really happened. One thing is clear: In Whitehead's York, nothing is as it seems, and even chocolate can leave a bitter taste.
