Death by Chocolate
  • Death by Chocolate

  • In the Twenty-First Century of Our Lord, Christ the Fit, it has been illegal to be fat for three years, except in Louisiana and Alabama, where they cling to their chicken-fried-fullest-fat-cream-sodden-gumbo-dunkin'=mall-waddling-lives as if their souls depended on it. Matt Devlin is a Health Enforcement Agent. His is humdrum work, busting the eateasys selling illegal burgers and chocolate, checking weight permits, issuing tickets ... When a beautiful woman is found dead, dressed only in sweet-scented 'brown', Homicide call for help. It looks like murder, but is it also a food crime?

    'Imagine a world where fatty foods and chocolate are illegal, with health enforcement officers doing random spot checks to ensure that you fit into your weight bracket. Well, that's the setting behind this intriguing murder mystery, where a girl is found dead, dressed only in chocolate ... [Toby Moore] gets you turning those pages, trying to suss out who the guilty party is before the detectives do. Brilliant!' New Woman
