Slight (okay extreme) change of pace.
From the Blurb:
Rebecca wondered if she was looking at an elaborate hoax. She wasn't.
Along with a dozen other journalists and food-industry celebrities, she had just witnessed the unveiling of the baked head of one of Adelaide's most celebrated chefs. The head of Leong Chew sat on a pewter platter. The cloche had just been removed, revealing Leong Chew, clearly not at his best.
As editor of Taste, the food and wine liftout of Adelaide's daily newspaper, Rebecca Keith has a life of long lunches and social engagements. That is, until one of the city's most respected chefs is found murdered.
Caught up in a criminal investigation, and having to report on it as well, Rebecca comes face-to-face with a host of suspects - and the charming Detective Inspector Gary Jarvie. The murderer is on the loose, though, and Rebecca doesn't realise how much danger she's in.
