In Funeral Food, the first of six mysteries featuring the crew at the Delphi Café, Tory would like nothing more than to get through the hot June days waiting tables. When a handsome young Mormon Missionary is found, dead, in the café’s mop closet, Tory is drawn into the investigation, and what she discovers shakes the foundations of her small town world.
In Sex and Salmonella, the second of six mysteries featuring the crew at the Delphi Café, Tory is busy enough dealing with twelve year old Presley (her roommate Del’s son), the married Stuart McKee, performing in the local talent contest, and the heat and humidity. When she discovers a dead body in the carnival Fun House, Tory’s summer spins completely out of control.
In The Hotel South Dakota, the third of six mysteries featuring the crew at the Delphi Café, the return of the 1969 Homecoming Queen, a B Movie Actress and the town's one and only claim to fame, triggers memories of an old kegger at the river, mysterious disappearances, and a death that was never fully explained. When history repeats itself, Tory reluctantly steps in to solve the puzzle.
In Mourning Shift, the fourth of six mysteries featuring the crew at the Delphi Café, Tory's Halloween is complicated by city-wide celebrations, a dead stranger in the cafe bathroom, the arrival of a stripper who intends to stay, and the loss of a good friend.
In Cold Front, the fifth of six mysteries featuring the crew at the Delphi Café, a New Year's Eve blizzard turns deadly when a snowy trip into the countryside turns up a frozen body. With her personal life in turmoil, Tory finds herself snowbound and, once again, smack in the middle of an investigation.
Small-town waitress Tory Bauer is no longer taking orders from anyone, now that she has become co-owner of the only café in tiny Delphi, South Dakota.
And since corpses on the premises are bad for business, Tory is understandably peeved when a young Swedish member of a traveling international choral group keels over in one of the booths, leaving a suicide note behind claiming the Reverend Clay Deibert, drove her to it.
Tory knows Clay is the straightest of straight arrows -- he's also Tory's cousin by marriage -- but when a dead body winds up stuffed into Clay's closet, she realizes that clearing the reverend might be tougher than finding a sarong in Saskatchewan.
