Synopsis: Molly Marbles runs a successful bistro on terraformed Mars. But a virtual restaurant opens near her place, offering the experience of delicacies from across the Solar System with none of the calories. What will this do to her business?
Then its owner is murdered in her kitchen. Molly, an amateur detective, springs into action to help the police solve the mystery, while also planning her pop-star daughter’s wedding, keeping her kitchen staff from feuding, and protecting her cyborg friend from the humans-only mob. Meanwhile, the infamous Cereal Serial Killer has escaped prison on Pluto and has everyone worried. Things are getting hectic, but Molly is a resilient and resourceful woman. And her knack for mysteries sees her nick-named ‘Sherlock Mars’.
Cosy crime meets futuristic life on Mars. This is a quirky little murder mystery where the owner of a virtual restaurant is found dead in the kitchen of neighbouring eatery. There are a lot of different things to take in such as all the different foods, places and people which over complicated things a bit for me. It was hard to keep track of everything. It was interesting and fun but probably for me, a few things could have been cut or moved to a new book. Overall not a bad story.
