The Devil's Feast, Hardback

The Devil's Feast Hardback

Part of the The Blake and Avery Mystery Series series



For lovers of Sherlock, Shardlake and Ripper Street.

A hugely enjoyable heart-pounding Victorian thriller- murder, a celebrity chef and a great detective double-act. 'Richly detailed and smartly plotted' S J Parris, Observer on The Printer's Coffin London, 1842.

There has been a mysterious and horrible death at the Reform, London's newest and grandest gentleman's club. A death the club is desperate to hush up. 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 facade-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 his mentor and partner-in-crime Jeremiah Blake? And what if this first death was only a dress rehearsal for something far more sinister?
