Product Details


Goldy Schulz must be the unluckiest caterer in the world. Most caterers just serve food; Goldy trips, falls, and finds lots of dead bodies. This time, after sending ingredients flying all over her clients' law offices, she notices the body of her protegee, Dusty Routt. Poor, hardworking Dusty had been determined to make a place for herself in a world that kept slapping her back. Had Dusty seen something in the office she shouldn't have? Dusty's mother asks Goldy to investigate, with suspects including lawyers (and their wives), the office staff, and an old boyfriend. Meant to be a commentary on the social divide between rich and poor, Dark Tort suffers from verbosity and drifting focus. From the long-winded account of Goldy's initial panic to the tedious and complicated plot wrap-up, this is a book in search of an editor. Fortunately, while not a great mystery, this is still a generally amusing novel. Barbara Rosenblat, who has read other titles in the series, does her usual superb job. Recommended with reservations for most collections.-I. Pour-El, Des Moines Area Community Coll., Boone, IA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Rosenblat is a performer of many tempos. When caterer Goldy Schulz trips over a corpse and searches for help, Rosenblat speaks at a heart-pounding pace to draw the listener right into the narrative. After the body is taken care of and the flying flour has settled, Rosenblat slows to chart Goldy's methodical search for the killer. But Rosenblat saves smoother tones for the cooking scenes between Goldy and her police detective husband, Tom. Eating is more enjoyable for Goldy than cooking, so Rosenblat lays on her silkiest tones for the dinner scenes between the couple and their son. It's probably best not to listen to this audio on an empty stomach. Rosenblat has her hands full as she deftly and singlehandedly performs a soap-opera sized cast with aplomb. There are recipes at the end of the last CD, and there are lots of good food preparation tips along the way, so listeners will want to take notes. Simultaneous release with the Morrow hardcover (Reviews, Mar. 6). (May) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
