Back of the Book Blurb #29 Challenge

From Sioux's PageSioux offers this challenge.

She posts a picture and you need to imagine it as a graphic for a book. You choose the genre and book title, and then write a blurb that might appear on the back of the book.

The blurb should be 150 words or less (not including the title).
The genre is wide-open.
Each blogger should include their blurb on their own blog, and link back to this post.
Have fun with it. Go to the other posts and comment on the other blurbs. 
You can do fancy techy things with the photo.

(Join in if you dare...! It sounds like fun! I think this would be a lot of fun to do with students especially since they would be expected to write 150 words or less!)

Death by Donuts

When the workers came in to begin their early morning preparations, they walked in to the kitchen and was horrified! When they turned on the lights, they saw a huge lump in the dough vat. Suddenly they realized that it was a dead body covered in the dough mix! Their eyes glazed over as they rushed to call the police. Detectives Croissant and Strudel arrived to investigate. Why did this happen at Randy’s donut shop? Who was dead? Randy was known to be a big gambler and could have owed someone lots of “dough” so was someone trying to send him a message? They went round and round in their discussion but hadn’t come up with any leads. All they could come up with were half-baked ideas. Read more to see how the investigation turns out and who was the real killer! (142 words)

The detectives' names. Lots of dough. Half-baked. Pat, you really threw in the puns this time. I definitely want to know whodunit.
