Overview

Between haute couture and haute cuisine, Parisian Commissaire Capucine Le Tellier finds murder to be more than the spécialité du jour. . .

When the senior food critic for Le Figaro is found face-first in a plate of Ravioles d'homard, there seem to be as many suspects as there are restaurants in the City of Light. Yet Capucine feels she'll solve the case quicker than it takes to find a 3-star rating in the Michelin Guide. Un problem, murders of food critics have become an epidemic. And there are just as many suspects, including a sexy starlet, an award-winning novelist, and a smorgasbord of aggravated chefs. While Capucine struggles to zero in on the murderer's tastes, she is confronted with a false dilemma: file and forget the case, leaving restaurant critics across France vulnerable to a killer's episodic cravings, or use her husband, Alexandre, himself a famous food journalist, as irresistible bait.

This is a part of the Capucine culinary mystery series. All of the books are delightful, but this one was especially exciting. Since Capucine, a police commissaire, is married to a famous restaurant critic, she is assigned cases involving the restaurant industry. Someone is killing the restaurant critics one by one and they are all friends of her husband. It is a race to find the killer and keep her husband from being one of the victims. As is true in each of the books of this series, we are treated to some extraordinary French cuisine.
