Coyle’s Coffeehouse Mystery series has remained strong, and the latest installment is as bracing as a great cup of espresso and as flavorful as one of the delicious recipes she includes. Clare’s romance with an NYPD detective remains compelling due to the obstacles logically put in the way as he works with Homeland Security in D.C. The full cast of characters and the incorporation of the computer world only add to this puzzling and intricate mystery.
Clare Cosi is thrown into a police investigation when a car bomb goes off outside her landmark coffeehouse in New York City. The attempt on the life of billionaire tech tycoon Eric Thorner nearly kills him. When he survives thanks to Clare, he gives her a career opportunity she can’t refuse: Create the most expensive coffee blend in the world. Clare also helps apprehend the alleged attacker, but life-threatening mishaps that occur next leave her wondering if the case is really solved. (Prime Crime, Dec., 400 pp., $25.95)
