Dim Sum Dead : A Madeline Bean Culinary Mystery, by Jerrilyn Farmer

I picked this up kind of randomly at the used bookstore a couple weeks ago. Why am I going to the used bookstore when I have more unread books on my floor than I have time to read? I can’t explain it either. Heck, these days, I can’t even keep up with my Economist subscription, let alone read books. But I was unable to resist the siren call of the bookstore as I walked by, so while I was there, I glanced at the pile of recently arrived used mysteries, and the name Dim Sum Dead just amused me. I picked it up and read the first few pages and they were tolerably engaging, so I bought the book. It’s a light frothy mystery set in Los Angeles, with a protagonist, Madeline Bean, who’s a caterer to private parties. In this case, she gets drawn into a mystery when an acquaintance asks for help and later dies under mysterious circumstances. Quick, fun read. I’ll probably pick up the others in the series if I see them used.

Mad Max is as excellent as others said. Gas pedal through the floor for 2 hrs of ridiculous action fun. Thumbs up!
