About the Author

Diane Mott Davidson lives in Evergreen, Colorado, with her husband and three sons and is at work on her next novel.


Davidson has found a delectable niche with her best-selling culinary mysteries (e.g., Catering to Nobody, St. Martin's, 1990). Here, series caterer Goldy Schulz is accused of murder.

--San Francisco Chronicle

"A literary feast."
--The San Diego Union-Tribune "[A] spirited romp."
--Booklist "The author's breakthrough novel."
--Sun-Sentinel (Ft. Lauderdale) "Another three-star helping of suspense."
--The Post and Courier (Charleston, SC) "Davidson's best...with clever twists and turns all the way to the end."
--The Topeka Capital-Journal

Colorado caterer and amateur sleuth Goldy Bear is back (from Killer Pancake, Dying for Chocolate, etc.) in a contrived plot featuring some preposterous adventures and 12 recipes. During what seems an interminably rainy spring, Goldy's excitable, wealthy friend Marla convinces Prospect Investment Partners, whose chief investment officer recently died in a car crash, to hire Goldy to cater a party. The affair, thrown to court investors in Prospect's latest venture, the reopening of an old gold mine, is held, in the rain, at the mine itself. As the party begins, Marla has a monumental argument with Prospect partner, Albert Lipscomb, about an assay report. Subsequently, Albert disappears with Prospect's cash. Goldy decides to find out what happened, against the advice of her new husband, Tom Schulz, a Sheriff's Department Homicide investigator. Then Marla and her boyfriend, Prospect CFO Tony Royce, are attacked while camping; next Tony vanishes and the police arrest Marla. Goldy enlists the help of her son Archie, her catering assistant Macguire, Archie's pet bloodhound, Jake, and Marla's brother-in-law, Gen. Bo Farquhar, a retired munitions expert. Breaking laws at breakneck speed, they rescue Marla from jail, solve the mysteries after a frightening climb through the old mine and a shoot-out at the airport and are exonerated by grateful cops. Only Archie, Jake and the recipes create sparks in this damp tale. (Sept.)
