ROALD DAHL MEETS AMERICAN PSYCHO IN A GRIPPING TALE ABOUT THE FILTH BEHIND FINE DINING…

“An adult fairytale set in the eighties restaurant scene.” – Esquire

“Hell’s Kitchen has a new head chef…Max Mann is one of the most compellingly repulsive villains in recent fiction and I rooted for his whipping-boy turned nemesis, Killian Lone, on every page. This is a pitch-dark, high original fable about family, ambition and redemptive power of cooking. By turns enchanting and grotesque, I couldn’t tear myself away from it.” – Erin Kelly, author of The Burning Air and The Poison Tree

 

“A fine, well-crafted debut.”
The Independent
“Excellent.”
Bookbag
“Dazzling...Perfume for the Gordon Ramsay generation.”
Tasmina Perry
