When an assortment of chefs gather for a guided tour of Thailand’s culinary scene, nobody is expecting such strange spices as a very bad burglar, drunken mushrooms, romance and drugs … and it’s up to the non-chef in the group, Joan Maguire, to play a very non-traditional Ms. Marple and unravel the complexities of a cross-cultural crime and an international mystery. Mixing a fond familiarity with Thailand and Thai customs together with a keen appreciation of the culinary scene, Cooks’ Tour takes the reader inside the culture of a fascinating land where the customs are not merely colorful but also clues.

Interspersed among the mayhem, however, are such mouth-watering meals that you will be faced with a dilemma: do you continue reading to find out who dun’it and why, or do you proceed as quickly as possible to the nearest Thai restaurant? (The answer: take the book with you and finish reading it while you eat a curried Thai dish.)

Meet the Author

Ex-Navy Air Crew and electronics expert, Ben returned to college for a ten-year stint collecting multiple majors in Math and Sciences as well as one in Arts and by correspondence, a BS degree in Computer Sciences. During his college career, Ben was an antiquarian book dealer but later began traveling (both throughout the US and abroad) while publishing more than two dozen books on computer programming. Tiring of writing about computers, Ben became a software design engineer and has two patents to his credit. Now retired (medically disabled, DAV), Ben lives in the Pacific North-west, in a temperate rain-forest jungle on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula accompanied by Mary, his lover for a half-century and his companion/nurse and sometimes boss, Keiser, a miniature Schnauzer and Medic Alert Service Dog with a penchant for challenging (and winning against) bears. When not overloaded with other projects – and there always seem to be other projects – Ben enjoys crafting mysteries which have backgrounds and plot divergences not commonly found in the genre but which are all authentic and drawn from a long and varied career in several fields and countries.
