Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0373263562, Paperback)

After their last adventure during an Elderhostel bonsai class, when Dodee was kidnaped and Jim found himself face to face with a killer, James P. Dandy (yes, that would make him Jim Dandy) and Dodee Swisher expect that their second trip to a Baltimore, Maryland, Elderhostel cooking class cannot possibly have the excitement the first one did. They hope to simply spend the time together, getting to know one another better, learn about how the great chefs of the world came to be great chefs, and maybe add to their own mediocre cooking skills.

They're wrong, of course. Before they even arrive in Baltimore, the chef scheduled to guide the Elderhostel group dies of mushroom poisoning. Then a very rich Elderhosteler is killed in a traffic accident, Jim and Dodee listen intently to the bickering among the chefs about who's most suited to be the headliner for a new TV show called "A Dash of Thyme" -- and learn that the show's creator has gone missing. And then another chef dies right in front of them from anaphylactic shock.

Convinced there is a murderer on the loose, the irrepressible Dodee is off and running after clues with a reluctant but stout-hearted Jim Dandy at her heels -- but, since Dodee's guessing is right on the mark, so is the killer..."
