A brief plug for my noir novel, Marta’s Place. Check it out!


Death comes to Dinner in this Deadly Reception

Chef Merle Blanc, he has the nose. And when millionaire Bernard Goldberg dies during his wedding luncheon in the chef’s restaurant, Chef Blanc’s nose, he smells the murder!

Cover Design by Shelley Rodgerson

What greater insult for Chef Blanc than that someone would be so callous as to commit a murder in his restaurant during a wedding reception he has so painstakingly prepared.

Still the doctors and police believe Goldberg’s death was natural. Can Chef Blanc keep some forty guests and employees in his restaurant long enough for him to don his apron and cook a killer’s goose before closing time?

“A fun read with lots of red herrings and false trails.  I’m pleased to recommend Deadly Reception as a well told tale worth the time. Surprises in store for you. You’ll want to read other tales by this very able storyteller. Enjoy.  I sure did.”

— Anne K. Edwards

“One of the year’s best.”
