Truffled Feathers

by Nancy Fairbanks

The Director of Research and Development at a large chemical company has invited Carolyn Blue and her husband to the Big Apple for some serious wining and dining. But before she has a chance to get a true taste of New York, the R & D Director is dead—keeled over after a heaping helping of pastrami. Talk about high cholesterol! Or was it high crime?

Carolyn and Jason set out separately to pursue their respective theories of what proves to be a murder, not a heart attack. After an orgy of fine food and glamorous nights at operas and plays, after excursions into industrial espionage and the machinations in the world of publishing, the Blues discover that, as detectives, they were both half right.
