ABOUT THE AUTHOR, LESLIE KARST
The daughter of a law professor and a potter, Leslie Karst learned young the value of both careful analysis and the arts—ideal ingredients for a mystery story. Putting this early education to good use, she now writes the Sally Solari Mysteries, a culinary series set in Santa Cruz, California.
ABOUT THE BOOK, MURDER FROM SCRATCH
Sally Solari’s cousin Evelyn may be blind, but she can see all too clearly that her restaurateur mother’s death wasn’t an accident. Danger confronts the cousins as they investigate the murder, and delve into the world of macho commercial kitchens and the cut-throat competitiveness that can flame up between chefs.
