The second title in the Ed Rosenberg mystery series. At the gala launch party for porn publisher Ted Calderone s new erotic magazine, sexy models serve delicious appetizers but a murderer has spiked one tray with poison mushrooms, death caps. A controversial investigative reporter eats them and dies. Local newspaperman Ed Rosenberg was standing next to the victim when he swallowed the poison, and gets wrapped into the vortex of the murder investigation. Ed follows leads from a dark basement in Chinatown to a fabulous mansion atop Russian Hill, and to the heart of America s porn industry. He meets gorgeous nude models, a famous feminist who hated Calderone but now works for him, and a genius computer hacker. More bodies drop, and Ed wonders if Calderone is the murderer or the killer s ultimate target. Then Ed finds himself looking down the wrong end of a gun.
