German Publisher Gives New Meaning To Poison Pen

Ein Maxie Kaiser Roman

 Hamburg publisher Hoffmann und Campe Verlag has issued an urgent recall for a promotional recipe card attached to its new book catalogue out of concern that it may kill-off potential book buyers. The card, which was designed to tie-in with mystery writer Tanja Griesel’s new Maxie Kaiser novel,

Rothard, includes a recipe that calls for leaves of the herb foxglove. Unfortunately, the plant is toxic and may even be deadly.

Griesel’s locavore chef and restauranteur, Maxie Kaiser may get away with poisoning a food critic or two, but her publisher is being more circumspect. Hoffmann und Campe has asked all booksellers to return their catalogue.
