Food writer Frank Lasher is living the dream. New York City’s finest restaurants are his office and the gorgeous Lisa is his dining partner. When Frank is given the chance to write a series of articles about the discovery of the world’s largest truffle, he jumps at the chance. Who wouldn’t want an all expenses paid trip to Europe in return for researching this most expensive and exotic of foods? What Frank doesn’t know is that instead of a working vacation in France or Italy, he’s going to Croatia, a country just emerging from war. And, when he becomes a suspect in a murder, Frank must help find the killer before he can return home to claim Lisa’s love.
Truffle Hunt is a foodies’ dream novel. Author Brent Petersen even includes recipes of some of these delicious truffle dishes at the end of the book.
