Product Description: From the author of The Chocolate Clown Corpse, it's murder, my sweet, for a chocolatier whose love of old crime films plunges her into a real-life murder in which the motives aren't so black-and-white.
The Warner Pier tourism board is kicking off its Tough Guys and Private Eyes film festival with The Maltese Falcon, and Lee Woodyard and her aunt Nettie are preparing a delicious chocolat noir tie-in at TenHuis Chocolade. What Lee isn't prepared for is a face from the past: Jeff Godfrey, her former stepson. The last time Jeff showed up in town, he wound up being accused of murder. He says he's in Warner Pier only to see Bogart on the big screen. Honest.
Then Jeff goes missing, the Falcon theme is haunting everyone, and a body falls at Lee's feet when she opens the front doorójust like in the movie. Now Lee is under deadline to rewrite the ending of a cunning killer's increasingly convincing murder plot. (Includes Tasty Chocolate Trivia.)
