Maxie Scoville and the Chili Showdown have rolled into Las Vegas to judge the hot Devil's Breath chili contest. With casino performers as judges, everyone is looking to get in on the act, until one local comedian drops dead in the middle of the showdown, falling into his chili. When it's revealed that poison, not the dish, did him in, Maxie sets out to identify the culprit and discovers almost as many suspects as there are cards in a deck. Maxie, while also dealing with her half-sister as a business partner, her missing father and the showgirl still carrying a torch for him, and heated comments from her head of security, has to take a chance that she can win big, without losing her business or her life. VERDICT Logan's second culinary mystery (after Chili Con Carnage) carries itself well through the multilayered story line.
