Mah-jongg meets murder at a hip Chinese banquet
by Jerrilyn Farmer
Sympathy for the Devil
Madeline Bean, caterer to the stars, is in the middle of the biggest job of her new career: a Halloween party for notorious producer Bruno Huntley, complete with an eerie fortuneteller who is astonishingly accurate, and exotic food that's to die for. But before long, Bruno has been poisoned to death. Madeline's partner is accused of the crime, and she has to sort things out before she meets her own fadeout.
The Pope is coming to L.A., and Madeline Bean has been chosen to plan the welcoming extravaganza. But menu plans never included a young priest found dead in the bed of an uninhibited Hollywood star, or a yellowed page of Latin scrawl revealing a Jesuit brother's shocking past. And with the Pope on his way and chaos boiling over, it's up to Madeline to sort out this unholy mess.
Although not about to say "I do" anytime soon, hip party-planner Madeline Bean is no stranger to the phenomenon known as the LA wedding. And how could she possibly refuse the invitation of Vivian Duncan, the grande dame of West Coast wedding consultants? But Madeline wasn't counting on one of the guests being a corpse, and with people disappearing and the bride in tears, Maddie just may be the next victim...unless she can reveal the murderer fast.
