The Burnt House by Faye Kellerman

In Faye Kellerman’s series involving the L.A.P.D.,  Lieutenant Peter Decker is quite the coffee fiend. His character is a very serious Jew and any mention of food in the book involves the subject of how kosher it is. I’m glad that coffee is a kosher beverage.


I just finished reading The Burnt House. Lt. Decker and his unit investigate a plane crash in L.A. and the after effects. It’s a very good book. I pulled a good coffee quote from the book for you.

“Cuban cuisine offered very little in the way of pure vegetarian entrees. Even the rice and beans were often mixed with lard. On the other hand, the Cubans made a great cup of strong coffee.” (page 82)
