Publisher's Summary

When France’s top chef, Marc Fraysse, summoned the world’s press to make a shattering announcement, rumors abounded that he was about to lose one of his three coveted Michelin stars. Instead, on arrival at his remote restaurant on a volcanic plateau in central France, they were greeted with the news that the troubled genius had been murdered, and the message he intended to deliver was never made. Seven years later, his killing and the identity of his killer still remain an enigma.
Enzo Macleod takes on his fifth cold case and delves into the big business and high stakes of French haute cuisine. As winter sets in and snow gathers along a volcanic horizon, he retraces long-cold footsteps across a remote hilltop. But unraveling the complex web of relationships that surrounded the brilliant and mercurial chef—a spurned lover, a jealous wife, an estranged brother, an embittered food critic—also leads to strange parallels with his own life. And in opening up this celebrated cold case, he finds himself reopening old wounds from his past.

Another fine entry

I've become close to all the characters & this is another good portion of the series, with the exception of Charlotte.

Enzo Files - Incomplete!

Love all Peter May's books but it is frustrating that not all the Enzo or China files are available on Audible.

Disappointing

After reading the Black House and the Lewis Man both of which I really enjoyed, I decided to try another Peter May book. Chalk and cheese spring to mind best summarised as; pretentious, boring, slow and all read with some very doggie accents - would not recommend.
