About this title


When sous chef Cassie Doolin arrives at the Embassy of St. Denis in Washington, she is prepared for a hectic night of cooking, plating, and serving the three hundred guests at the sumptuous Caribbean feast. The only drama she anticipates is a broken glass or two and perhaps one of executive chef Stephan Matthews’s characteristic tirades. She is not prepared for the news that dozens of the party guests are flooding the city’s emergency rooms just hours after dinner. Thanks to her husband’s position in the Washington Metropolitan Police department, Cassie is privy to the news that the suspicious case of food poisoning was actually an attempt on the vice president’s life. She realizes the would-be murderer was operating in the very kitchen where she was working. Determined to ferret out the culprit, Cassie slips back into the amateur detective mode she first explored in Land of the Blind. What she uncovers is an intricate web of blackmail, theft, diplomatic intrigue, and murder.

About the Author:

Perri Nash is the pen name for Jan Perry, whose own life has provided her with ample fodder for her Cassie Doolin novels. She called Washington, DC “home” for almost two decades, while she worked for the U.S. State Department and the American Institute in Taiwan. While living in Palm Beach County, Florida, she owned a gourmet food shop and catering business, the inspiration behind Cassie’s culinary adventures. Death is a Dish Best Served Cold is the second book in the Cassie Doolin mystery series, which began with Land of the Blind. Perry lives today in Delaware, where she continues to chronicle the escapades of Cassie Doolin.

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
