Berkely, California has been transformed from hippie to yuppie, but it's still home to homicide detective Jill Smith. And even in the Bay Area, some elements of the human condition remain eternal... like murder. Now the owner of a local gourmet eatery has completed his karma: poisoned at his own fabulous Paradise Restaurant. A sixties holdover who has made food his life, Mitchell Biekma also made it a catalyst for deadly rivalries and rage. A street crazy, a disgruntled dishwasher, and a neighborhood activist all would have gladly seen him in hell. Paradise serves food of the gods, but it leaves Jill with the bitter taster of broken dreams and face-to-face with her mortality.
