The Devil's Feast Synopsis

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. Long-listed for a CWA Endeavour Historical Dagger 'Wonderful ... The Devil's Feast proves to be a sumptuous treat' The Times 'Criminally good ... I love this mystery series - it just gets better and better' Woman & Home 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 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?
