DIM SUM DEAD is an entertaining Madeline Bean catering mystery that showcases the abilities of author Jerrilyn Farmer. Madeline's personal life is realistic without detracting from the story, and the story is interesting right away and paced well. The mystery is well-integrated but not transparent. The dialogue is fun, and the characters are likeable. This is a lively mix of Hollywood dish, mouth-watering recipes. I also enjoyed the references to the menus Madeline and Wes were serving at the Mahjong parties. Overall, an enjoyable book, with plenty of action, with very little actual violence. A palatable and satisfying reading experience
