Publisher's Summary

Ivan Sorokin is missing. Who wants him out of the picture - his wife, his business partner, or the stripper who holds his heart?

Josie Tucker stands on Beach Street with her back to the San Francisco wharf. Above her, the Ghirardelli sign winks in the dusky twilight, seducing her. The ice cream parlor lights beckon like a lactose lothario, a casein casanova, trying hard to woo her. But her heart longs for dumplings, for dim sum.

Dim sum means "heart's delight." Imagine nibbling at a savory golden pouch stuffed with delicately seasoned meat. If a lover offers the morsel on the tips of exquisitely lacquered chopsticks late in the morning while reclining on silken cushions - that's food for the heart.

Chinatown. Dim sum. Murder. Josie's perfect ingredients for adventure.

I LOVED this series!

I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this book. Josie is the perfect amateur sleuth and food critic, though she is challenged by gastric issues that put a hamper on her livelihood. This is a fun, fast-paced mystery filled with twists and turns I didn't expect. A real page turner! And Sunny Lu was a fabulous narrator. Great series. I know what I want for Christmas...Dead Man on Campus. Thanks EM!

josie sinks her teeth into the world of burlesque

What does Sunny Lu bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

sunny lu's melodic tones helps draw you into the tale, totally entrancing

Any additional comments?

as Josie starts to get her life back together after being buried alive in her first tale, she embarks on a journey to san Francisco to get the low down on her best friends boyfriend and his start up company, just as she gets there everything starts falling apart, with her new P.I. licence she starts to get into the swing of things with her natural ability to get people to talk, her nose for trouble and a couple of local cops, she delves into the murky world of china town, silicone valley and burlesque strippers!the story is faster paced than the first book and the witty one liners abound making this a very good read indeed, would recommend!
