Book Title: Hamburger Dreams: How Classic Crime Solving Techniques Helped Crack the Case of America’s Greatest Culinary Mystery


Cynics will tell you we can never discover who really sold the first hamburger just because there is no smoking gun proof. By coincidence, literature’s most famous detective appeared at the same time the first hamburger was sold. Would he have conceded just because the case lacked a credible eye witness? Would he say it’s impossible to know who among the usual suspects most likely sold the first hamburger? No. Sherlock Holmes didn’t rely on the existence of a smoking gun. He used something more convincing: the power of deduction. Award-winning on-line news producer, journalist, and academic researcher Christopher Carosa uses these classic crime solving techniques and other investigative tools to crack the mystery behind who sold the world’s first hamburger. In Hamburger Dreams, Carosa submits his findings in much the same way a DA might present a final summation to the jury. The results will more than intrigue you.
