Hot Stuff is a good puzzle and our battered truck owners do get to the right answer, albeit by a somewhat circuitous route. I’m not wholly convinced by the way the book ends. It’s a bit too melodramatic for my taste. But it does have the virtue of neatness and leaves everything set for the series to continue.

An attractive sous chef at the famous restaurant L'Elfe Is murdered and half of the employees are suspect.? The lack of police progress toward solving the murder leads Chef Jean Bouvier to seek a quicker solution.? He hires private eyes James Lessor and Skip Moore to go undercover and discreetly investigate his restaurant staff.? But their Investigation turns up far more than they bargained for.? Skip's charming girlfriend, Emily, confesses that the murder victim and she had been close friends at one point in their lives and had shared a very dark secret.? But Emily refuses to elaborate, building a wall of defense between herself and the two young detectives.? The more James and Skip investigate the background of the victim and the people she knew, the more they are convinced that this shared secret has far-reaching implications that may lead to the motive for the murder.? The closer they get to the answer, the more desperate someone is to stop them.
