" This unforgettable novel of intrigue, passion, and divided loyalties sweeps from the back streets of New Orleans to the high gloss of New York to the inner sanctums of the Vatican. And laid bare are all the sins the flesh is heir to, and all the longings that can lift the heart as high as heaven-or break it in pieces."

Charly Poisson, the owner and chef of a restaurant in New York State finds a body on his property while searching for mushrooms. Of course Charly has to do his own investigating since the local police are tied up solving a string of barn burnings. Charly is nice enough to include many of his recipes and little kitchen hints in the book.
