Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Killian Lone comes from a long line of gifted cooks, stretching back to the seven­teenth century, and yearns to become a famous chef himself. When he starts an apprenticeship under Max Mann, the most famous chef in London, he looks set to continue the family tradition. But the reality of kitchen life is brutal. Even his fellow apprentice, Kathryn, who shows Killian uncharacteristic kindness, can’t stop his being sucked into the vicious, debauched world of 1980s fine dining, and gradually he is forced to surrender his dream.

Then he discovers a dark family secret—the legacy of an ancestor who was burnt as a witch for creating food so delicious it was said to turn all who tasted it mad. Killian knows he can use this secret to achieve his ambitions and maybe, finally, to win Kathryn’s affections. But is he willing to pay the price?

This is Killian’s confession—a strange tragedy about love, ambition andincredible food . . .

Review:

"This riveting first novel melds urban fantasy with psychotic personalities and more than a dash of horror. The first inkling that Killian Lone's gift for cooking might be magical comes when his rage at his boss manifests as a fly that lands on the abusive man's lip. Killian's job as an apprentice chef at Max Mann's famous London restaurant is backbreaking and soul crushing. To Killian, the slights, sadistic tests, and belittling taunts are all part and parcel of the journey from apprentice to master chef. He will endure anything as long as the end result is fame and recognition. And he can be the best chef in London — once his great-aunt's cottage and its secrets are his. Storr entices the senses with luscious descriptions of food while offering a grim, destructive vision of a brutal, personality-driven profession."
