Introducing baker and amateur sleuth Corinna Chapman.

Mysteries filled with gastronomical delights, humour and unexpected twists from the bestselling author of the Phyrne Fisher mysteries.

Baking is an alchemical process for Corinna Chapman. At four am she starts work at Earthly Delights, her bakery in Calico Alley.

But one morning Corinna receives a threatening note saying 'The wages of sin is death' and finds a syringe in her cat's paw. A blue-faced junkie has collapsed in the dark alley and a mysterious man with beautiful eyes appears with a plan for Corinna and her bread. Then it is Goths, dead drug addicts, witchcraft, a homeless boy and a missing girl and it seems she will never get those muffins cooked in time.

With flair, chutzpah and a talent for kneading, Corinna Chapman will find out who exactly is threatening her life and bake some beautiful bread.

  • A very Melbournian detective story

    by on

    Like many I came to Kerry Greenwood's detective stories through Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries. Charming though they are, there's also a great deal to admire in her modern-day Melbourne baker detective, Corinna Chapman.

    In Earthly Delights Corinna would prefer to be left to bake. Is it her fault people keep dying around her inner-city bakery? An excellent, light addition to the whodunnit variety of crime.
