The table is set, the wine is breathing, and television viewers are invited to delight in Darina Lisle's next episode of her top-rated food series, "Table for Four". Death was not on the menu until Darina's charming costar, Australian wine expert Bruce Bennett, drops dead on camera.
As one of the other guests poisoned the brash Aussie? More important, why? With equal flair for detection as for cooking, Darina starts from scratch, and finds two more murders adding spice to the crime.
And unless she unmasks a killer before the plot thickens, "Table for Four" may just be vacant when she becomes the final ingredient in a recipe for how to create the perfect murder.
