Cooking for Cannibals is for readers who like fast-paced plots, unconventional characters, and humor that crosses the line. Its two main characters are Carrie Kromer, a behavioral gerontologist who steals her lab’s top-secret, experimental medicine for aging in reverse, and two-time
ex-con cook and butcher Johnny Fairfax. When Johnny’s corrupt parole officer is murdered by the young-again residents of the nursing home where he cooks and where Carrie has distributed the stolen miracle
drug, they request Johnny fix them an evidence-devouring dinner to satisfy their insatiable side-effect appetite. As their unexpected mutual attraction gets hot, Carrie and Johnny find themselves caught up with the authorities
who arrive to investigate the killing. But even more dangerous than the man-eating not-so-senior citizens could be the arrival of death-dealing pharmaceutical hitmen. Can Carrie and Johnny find true love in all this

This is the perfect book for a binge read.” –Bestsellers World
