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?

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.

Held me prisoner

I purchase Audible books to listen to while on my 45 minute walk each day. So I expect to be able to have them last for several weeks. "The Devil's Feast" pulled me in and I was compelled to listen when I got home, when I was getting dressed, when I was driving. The details about the workings of the kitchen and the chef were, to put it mildly , fascinating. I had to discover who the culprit was but also more about each character.
This story creates an opening to hear more about the characters after this episode. I really hope so.
The narrator was phenomenal except that he barks out the dialogue. I am embarrassed to find fault with his skill, but I believe his delivery altered the content a little. I shouldn't even mention it.
This is the third book I have read in this series. The research is daunting. I learned so much about society and conditions of the time. Would I recommend this....without hesitation.
