5.0 out of 5 stars second in a fun series, May 22, 2010
By 
This is the second outing for Charly Poisson, the owner-chef of Van Buren County's only French restaurant -- and amateur sleuth. This time out Charly is up against an antiques theft ring, and finds himself the discoverer of yet another body. After Charly's antics in the series opener, Appetite for Murder, at least one police officer thinks Charly is the murderer. So of course he must set out to find the real killer, no? Charly is very similar to Hercule Poirot but without the detective skills. He is a consistently interesting protagonist, finding clues but not always knowing what they mean, an intelligent amateur detective who bumbles more than he thinks, a kindly and quirky man, and one who gives frequent philosophical comments as he explains how to cook short ribs or celeriac. Quite fun and well written.
