Publisher's Summary

Captain William Avery is persuaded to investigate, and soon discovers a web of rivalries and hatreds, both personal and political, simmering behind the club's handsome façade, and in particular concerning its resident genius, Alexis Soyer, "the Napoleon of food", a chef whose culinary brilliance is matched only by his talent for self-publicity. But Avery is distracted, for where is his mentor and partner-in-crime Jeremiah Blake? And what if this first death was only a dress rehearsal for something far more sinister?

Kitchen intrigue

This is the third story in an excellent series. The mystery here ( who is the poisoner) isn't all that engaging, but the behind-the-scenes look at the infighting, jealousies and theft in up-scale kitchens in London men's clubs, circa 1840's, is very detailed and very interesting. I'm guessing that these same intrigues are still playing out in high-end restaurants today. There are a LOT of characters to keep track of, and I thought the team of Blake and Avery didn't get much page time. Still enjoyable, and Alex Wyndham never disappoints.

Love this series and while different still as fun!

Just awesome! I'm not very judgemental and find joy in most books I read. This series is at the top of my list, however and I found this one to be as enjoyable as the rest. the narrator is terrific and the history mixed in is enlightening.
