Death By Chocolate: Redux

This collection of stories about Agent Swete (a rather extraordinary hero consisting of chocolate) covers almost all of David Yurkovich's stories written in this context. Not only the topic is outstandig, also the characters and the plots (about hunting criminals and clearing up crimes - mostly having to do with food in some way) will keep you engaged. The whole collection has been overworked and offers great value for little money.

Agent Swete - an unlikely hero comprised of organic chocolate and a member of the FBI's Food Crimes Division - and his sharp-tongued partner, Anderson, investigate a series of bizarre, food-inspired crimes. Along they way they encounter a variety of characters including an extraterrestrial canine named Geoffrey, writer Ernest Hemingway, an organized crime lord intent upon finding the life-enabling 'eternity pasta,' and an eerie, all-devouring trio known as The Metabolators.
