Most Helpful Customer Reviews
A collection of short mystery stories revolving around food or poisoning. I didn't find any stories that I just loved, but the one by Donna Andrews was good, as was the first one by Parnell Hall. Disappointing, really.
A mostly fun collection of food related murder by a wide variety of authors. A few of the mysteries were rushed at the end, but for a most part they worked. However, there was one story that was disturbing and I didn't care for at all.
