A wickedly delicious mystery--complete with recipes--from the bestselling author of Dying for Chocolate. The College Advisory Dinner seemed harmless enough to Aspen Meadow´s premier caterer, Goldy Bear. But when she discovers the main course for the evening is murder, Goldy is hungry for answers. Thanks to her recent adventures in Dying for Chocolate, Goldy Bear, the premier caterer of Aspen Meadow, Colorado, is no stranger to violence--or sudden death. But when she agrees to cater the first College Advisory Dinner for Seniors and Parents at the exclusive Elk Park Preparatory School, the last thing she expects to find at the end of the evening is the battered body of the school valedictorian. Who could have killed Keith Andrews, and why? Goldy´s hungry for some answers--and not just because she found the corpse. Her young son, Arch, a student at Elk Park Prep, has become a target for some not-so-funny pranks, while her eighteen-year-old live-in helper, Julian, has become a prime suspect in the Andrews boy´s murder. As her investigation intensifies, Goldy´s anxiety level rises faster than homemade doughnuts. . .as she turns up evidence that suggests that Keith knew more than enough to blow the lid off some very unscholarly secrets. And then, as her search rattles one skeleton too many, Goldy learns a crucial fact: a little knowledge about a killer can be a deadly thing.
Eighteen months on from the case that nearly cost him his life, only DCI Jamie Carver knows the incredible extent of the Worshipper Killer’s network of depravity - and the storm that will hit when others learn of it. They include those who walk Whitehall´s corridors of power as well as others in high office and even, maybe, the upper echelons of the Police Service itself. When former members of that network start dying, Carver suspects that someone is out to make sure that their involvement, at least, remains hidden - and will stop at nothing to do so. Needing information fast , but right now chained to a desk, his only recourse is the person who, after last time, he vowed to never have contact with again - the extraordinary and dangerously seductive dominatrix Megan Crane. 1.
