Monsieur Pamplemousse Investigates
Publisher: Allison & Busby
Monsieur Pamplemousse, the eccentric flatfoot/gourmand and Pommes Frites, his clever dog, team up to sniff out clues when a not-so-merry prankster sabotages Le Guide''France's oldest and most respected food guide.' The fictional food bible's staff finds itself in a stew when a false obituary of the director appears in the local paper on the very day the final manuscript - the first edition produced by computer, with influential new restaurant ratings - is to be unveiled at a company celebration. There the director faints dead away when he finds the manuscript completely botched, riddled with missratings and erroneous reviews.
