Is the "Holy Pail" cursed? Every owner of
the vintage Chappy Wheeler lunchbox–a
prototype based on the 1940s TV western–has died. And now Sterling Price,
business tycoon and a client of Odelia
Grey's law firm, has been fatally poisoned.
Is it a coincidence that Price's one-of-a-kind

Treading cautiously since a recent run-in

this juicy, calorie-free mystery–and is soon
ravenous for more! Her research reveals a
sixty-year-old unsolved murder and Price's
gold-digging ex-fiancée with two married
men wrapped around her breasts . . . uh,

that sends an uncertain Odelia into chocolate
sedation, and you've got an unruly
recipe for delicious disaster.
