Description

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Al Roker and Dick Lochte's The Talk Show Murders.

Professional chef turned amateur sleuth Billy Blessing finds himself in hot water when a brutal killing cancels a TV show--and its host--during its debut.


Billy has reluctantly agreed to fly westward and play second banana on a new late-night talk show hosted by comic Desmond O'Day in Los Angeles, a city that brings up bad memories. Twenty years ago, Billy had accused obnoxious chef Roger Charbonnet of murder there. A tricked-up alibi freed Roger, who vowed vengeance--and Billy's arrival in the City of Angels just may give Roger his chance. When a deadly explosion during a TV taping kills more than Desmond's chance at high ratings, Billy is convinced that he was the intended target. With politics, infidelity, and high finance sprinkled in, the case turns out to have more ingredients than Billy could ever have imagined. And when a beautiful female TV producer convinces Billy to find the culprit himself--on camera--the table's set for a conspiracy with too many cooks and far too many killers.

fullDescription

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Al Roker and Dick Lochte's The Talk Show Murders.

Professional chef turned amateur sleuth Billy Blessing finds himself in hot water when a brutal killing cancels a TV show--and its host--during its debut.


Billy has reluctantly agreed to fly westward and play second banana on a new late-night talk show hosted by comic Desmond O'Day in Los Angeles, a city that brings up bad memories. Twenty years ago, Billy had accused obnoxious chef Roger Charbonnet of murder there. A tricked-up alibi freed Roger, who vowed vengeance--and Billy's arrival in the City of Angels just may give Roger his chance. When a deadly explosion during a TV taping kills more than Desmond's chance at high ratings, Billy is convinced that he was the intended target. With politics, infidelity, and high finance sprinkled in, the case turns out to have more ingredients than Billy could ever have imagined. And when a beautiful female TV producer convinces Billy to find the culprit himself--on camera--the table's set for a conspiracy with too many cooks and far too many killers.
