Recipe for Murder

a Thriller by J.D. Robins

Recipe for Murder is a British murder mystery / thriller by J. D. Robins, written in the tradition of Agatha Christie: David Lawson, a research scientist, is not a well man, and his sister Beatie thinks his wife Claire doesn't take proper care of him. A visiting journalist begins to suspect that Claire may be guilty of more than just negligence because Claire's grandmother and first husband had died in mysterious circumstances and left her generous legacies. Is it possible that David is the next victim on her list? Suspicions deepen as this tightly-plotted, fast-moving, and often funny thriller moves to its surprising conclusion.
