Leslie Wetzon had a bad feeling when her on-again, off-again lover, Detective Silvestri, began investigating the homicide of an old flame. It was a feeling that only got worse when she learned that the victim was a friend of the woman who runs The Groaning Board. Wetzon’s business partner Xenia Smith has just hired the upscale gourmet food service to cater an important dinner party. Soon it seems everything is coming to a boil. Silvestri claims he needs time alone. Xenia is out of control. Wetzon finds herself attracted to a married man. And her phone callers include a heavy breather. If that’s not bad enough, someone close to her has an insatiable appetite for murder…and Wetzon may be the next course.
