#amreading The Popeye Murder, Sandra Winter-Dewhirst

Book Title: 

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.
