Now a seasoned member of the Paris Police Judiciaire, the ever fashionable and whip smart Commissaire Capucine Le Tellier is finding murder to be more than just the spécialité du jour. . .
When the senior food critic for Le Figaro is found face-first in a plate of Ravioles d'horand, 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 serve up an omelet aux fines herbes. Un problem, murders of food critics have become an epidemic. As the bodies pile up, un, deux, trois, so do the 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.
Filled with delectable intrigue and ripe with quirky suspects, with a dash of Freudian idées de grandeur, Killer Critique is a feast worth killing for. . .
