Don't know what it is about the Gourmet Detective books that interest me so, but they definitely intrigue me.  This one was better than the first one. Perhaps because the mystery was much better--a closed room type.  I also love all things Asian cooking, and the spices, meals, and restaurants spoken about in this book were mouth watering and familiar to me.  There was also lots of name dropping stories about the times and life in New York. In this book, the Gourmet Detective, who never gets a name, is called from England to New York to authenticate Ko Feng.  This spice has been missing from the world for over 500 years, so everyone from chefs, to pharmaceutical companies want to acquire some, and many are willing to do anything to get some.   It's worth a fortune and now it's missing and one of the men involved is dead too.  The GD seems to do much of his investigating with beautiful and intriguing women. This mystery has a definite feel of Christie's mysteries, with the gathering of suspects at the end of the story, where the culprits are revealed.  If you're a foodie and can stand a bit of snobbery in your characters, you'll enjoy these books.
