Washington's finest French chef, Laurence Levain, is dead, and all of D.C. thinks the culprit was too much foie gras. All, that is, except for Chas Wheatley, the city's most famous restaurant critic. Still carrying a torch for Levain after a passionate romance they shared years before, she's convinced that his death was more than a simple case of too much cholesterol -- it was a case of murder. Enlisting the aid of detective/gourmand Homer Jones, she launches an investigation and soon finds herself in more trouble than she bargained for.
A delicious entree into the increasingly popular culinary mystery genre, The Butter Did It is a fun, fast-paced whodunit by a true insider of the restaurant and newspaper worlds. Part culinary extravaganza and part old-fashioned mystery, it is just the thing for readers hungry for some intrigue with their dinner.
"What fun ... Features a memorable cast of foodies and a unique look at the goings-on behind the swinging doors to some of those famous restaurant kitchens". -- Diane Mott Davidson, author of The Grilling Season
"How to describe this book? Sue Grafton meets Wolfgang Puck? Sam Spade meets Julia Child? Warner LeRoy dines alone? The Butter Did It is great fun and food for thought. I'd tell you more, but I don't want to give away the spicy parts". -- Mark Russell
