Gary Turner and Gordy Baxter are lifelong best friends, former lovers, and world renowned cardiologists. Mysterious adventures are what they crave, but somehow murder seems to find its way into their plans, along with an assortment of ex-lovers.
Gary has a sharp tongue and can be a bit ‘scattered’ when away from the office. Gordy is reserved and chooses his words carefully, which can be quite a challenge with a loose cannon like Gary close by, always willing to offer his unfiltered opinion about everything from the latest food craze to world politics. If opposites attract, these two are sure to be together in one way or another.
It’s no secret that Gary has a hot temper, and he’s bedded his share of ‘questionable’ characters, but does someone want him dead? He’s being stalked, but why? Gary fears he may be cut into little pieces by the man in the dark glasses and dark suit he swears is following him. Gordy, as usual, thinks his buddy is imagining things.
Gary lived his life like a rock star, with five-star travel accommodations, designer clothes, and gourmet food high on his priority list. But he was an enterprising man. He and Gordy had purchased a rundown house they planned to fix up and turn into a bed and breakfast. He loved to cook and he loved to eat. He had turned his kitchen into a cloud of flying white dust as he stirred and whirred his way into creating the best pancakes anyone had ever tasted. He had whipped the batter a little longer than planned, and as a result the cakes were high and fluffy, allowing syrups and jellies to slowly seep inside. What he had created by accident was a cross between a muffin and a pancake.
“You and I are going to retire in style,” he promised Gordy.
