In the Twenty-First Century of Our Lord, Christ the Fit, it has been illegal to be fat for three years, except in Louisiana and Alabama, where they cling to their chicken-fried-fullest-fat-cream-sodden-gumbo-dunkin'-mall-waddling-lives as if their souls depended on it. Matt Devlin is a Health Enforcement Agent. His is humdrum work, busting the eateasys selling illegal burgers and chocolate, checking weight permits, issuing tickets...When a beautiful woman is found dead, dressed only in sweet-scented 'brown', Homicide call for help. It looks like murder, but is it also a food crime?

Well, that's the setting behind this intriguing murder mystery, where a girl is found dead, dressed only in chocolate ...[Toby Moore] gets you turning those pages, trying to suss out who the guilty party is before the detectives do. Brilliant!' - "New Woman".show more
