Known as "the Celestial Spice," Ko Feng was the most treasured of all of the spices in the ancient world for its extraordinary taste and its purported qualities as an aphrodisiac. Ko Feng has been lost for centuries, so when it is rediscovered, the demand is overwhelming and the price astronomical. The Gourmet Detective, called to New York by an old friend to authenticate the shipment of Ko Feng, is bewildered when the spice is stolen from right under his nose. When a culinary colleague is murdered and a sinister stranger tries to push the Gourmet Detective in front of a speeding subway train, he realizes that someone is willing to do anything to keep the Ko Feng to himself. The Gourmet Detective fears for his own life as he embarks upon an extensive search through the ethnic eateries of New York City, sampling exotic dishes from Doro Wat (Ethiopian chicken stew) to swordfish kebabs in his pursuit of the killer.… (més)

The London-based “Gourmet Detective” has been called upon by an old acquaintance to authenticate a rare spice that was thought to have been extinct for 500 years. The “Gourmet Detective” (I'll call him G.D. since he's never named) expects to stay in New York no longer than two or three days. However, his stay is unexpectedly extended when, first of all, the newly-authenticated spice disappears, and then his colleague is murdered. Since he is one of the few people who know what the spice looks like, G.D. agrees to help the police find the missing spice and the killer.

This is a typically formulaic cozy with perhaps a few too many suspects. However, the setting, the food history, and the descriptions of international cuisine nudge it above average. It has the feel of an episode of Murder, She Wrote, so it's not surprising that this series has been adapted for television movies on the Hallmark Movies and Mystery Channel. ( )

The Gourmet Detective (who is not a detective in the usual sense of the word) has been called by his friend Don Renshaw to help authenticate a shipment of a spice (Ko-Feng) that has been newly rediscovered, having been lost for 500 years. Of course, since no one living really knows much about it, they have to draw on their vast experiences with other spices and chemical reactions to do so. The shipment disappears as soon as it has been authenticaated. Restauranteurs as well as those into medical and other scientific research all want to get their hands on it. Soon there are deaths connected to the spice. The Gourmet Detective works with the New York Police Department to help solve the crime. This installment was very slow-paced. The narrative bogged down in what should have been my favorite part of it -- descriptions of food. Its solution was somewhat similar to a locked room puzzle in some sense, although there is an additional dimension since the murders took place outside of the locked room. ( )
