Holy Guacamole!

by Nancy Fairbanks

Carolyn Blue spices things up at a post-production opera party in El Paso, Texas-where the company’s notorious artistic Director, Vladislav Gubenko, eats some bad guacamole that disagrees with him right to the death. A scorned soprano admits to maliciously mixing the dish to get back at Vlad for passing her over for her dream role. But Carolyn learns that foul play, not foul food, was the real culprit-and uncovers, in a wild, cross-border investigation, pursued with the help of retired Vice Lt. Luz Vallejo, some unsavory secrets about Gubenko, not to mention the non-culinary killer.
