Death by Devil's Breath

In Las Vegas, the stakes are high and the chili is fiery. Maxie Pierce and the Chili Showdown are in town for a very heated contest devoted to judging the legendary and notorious-for-being-self-combustible Devil’s Breath chili. The guest judges are casino performers with a taste for chili and an eye for publicity.

Maxie is already going mad trying to find her missing father, Texas Jack Pierce, dealing with her snide half-sister Sylvia, and trying to figure out her hot head of security, Nick. But when a local hack comedian drops dead in the middle of the Showdown, it isn’t the spicy chili that does him in—it’s poison. And Maxie is going to have to shuffle through a full deck of suspects to pick out the killer.
