Take one rich, eccentric, morbidly obese gourmand; add a beautiful, sexy dessert chef; mix with them a fast-food entrepreneur; and you've got the fixings for a stylish treat. This audio presentation is the perfect blend of cooking, comedy and murder. George Segal's narration is strong, yet varied, and as stylish as the material. Segal makes the most of various accents and dialects. There's no question that his sardonic style enhances the humorous, sarcastic text. The recording is excellent in tone and clarity. For a tasty snack, this murder mystery will satisfy any craving. M.R. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
