Publisher's Summary

Slick, slimy, and completely without conscience, Ringo Laurenge has the right stuff to be a great reporter - and the most hated man at the Washington Examiner. Even food editor Chas Wheatley wants to strangle him for trying to steal her story on America's priciest restaurants. Other staffers have reasons to want to kill him too. Not surprisingly, someone does.

Now, while Chas shares delicious tidbits about today's trendiest eateries, she sifts through clues and sniffs out suspects - until the evidence cuts close to the bone and implicates a person Chas admires, or even loves.

Food critic Richman serves up another culinary whodunit filled with lots of juicy insider information.

"Not a good way to go out"

I've read the previous two in this series and loved them. However this was a disappointment. The murder took place at the very end of the book. And there was little mystery solving. Once it was figured out I was left wanting more of the story. I don't think there will be anymore in this series so It was not a nice end.
