Roux the Day

Peter King, Author Minotaur Books $23.95 (231p) ISBN 978-0-312-28365-0
The Gourmet Detective scours New Orleans for a missing cookbook and gastronomical heaven in the latest installment (after last year's Eat, Drink, and Be Buried) of Peter King's mystery series for foodies, Roux the Day. What begins as a reasonably simple mission authenticating an old book of recipes via its most famous dish, oysters Belvedere quickly gets complicated by murder, forgery and a posse of lady chefs who kidnap the epicurean hero.
