When French chef Marc Fraysse summoned the world's press seven years ago, rumors ran wild that he would announce the loss of one of his three coveted Michelin stars. Instead, journalists arriving at his remote restaurant in central France found that the troubled genius had been murdered; his message was never heard, and his killer was never discovered. In his fifth cold case (following Freeze Frame), expatriate Scottish forensic scientist Enzo Macleod delves into the high stakes and big business of French haute cuisine, and finds that the web of relationships around the mercurial chef—a spurned lover, a jealous wife, an estranged brother, an embittered food critic—offers strange parallels with his own complicated life.
