The knives are out!

Heaven Lee-- proprietress extraordinaire of Kansas City's celebrated Cafe Heaven-- knew she had to watch her back at Aspen's gossipy Real Dish Food Festival. But it wasn't until the saucy cook stumbled across the battered body of one of the Best Chef contestants that she realized how deadly the competition could be.

Every June, five thousand gourmands from across the globe gather in the chic resort town of Aspen, sipping wine in the pristine mountain air as five celebrity chefs battle for the Best Chef title. When the competitors start to drop, there's a bountiful supply of suspects. The intrepid Heaven discovers scores to settle, Hollywood ambitions, and outright malice before making sure a vicious killer gets their just deserts!
