Roald Dahl meets William Burroughs and American Psycho...A cruel and disturbing tale about the filth behind fine dining. 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, highly original fable about family, ambition and the redemptive power of cooking. By turns enchanting and grotesque, I couldn't tear myself away from it. Erin Kelly
