Death of a Chef

By Alexander Campion

Police Judiciaire Commissaire Capucine LeTellier takes a frantic call from Cecile, her best friend. Cecile has just bought a fabulously expensive vintage Louis Vuitton steamer trunk at the Paris Flea Market. She's horrified to find the trunk contains the naked body of a man who seems to have blown his head off. Capucine's restaurant critic husband identifies the body as uber-chef Jean-Louis Brault, who had been rumoured to be an inch away from losing his third Michelin star. Is the death a suicide or has Chef Brault been murdered? Before long Capucine is embroiled in a case so complex it takes her right to the door of the president's Elysee Palace.

Summary: "Quel horreur! When the body of acclaimed Chef Jean-Louis Brault and a shotgun are discovered in an antique Louis Vuitton portemanteau, everyone is convinced it's suicide. Distraught at rumors perpetuated by the vituperative food critic, Lucien Folon, that his restaurant La Mère Denis might lose its precious third Michelin star, Brault was considered to be très désolé by friends and family alike. But when Capucine is called to the mise-en-scène, Capucine smells something fishier than a bouillabaisse gone bad. And when Le Monde suggests that Capucine's investigation is a cover up for the lethal consequences of food critics everywhere--a profession in which her husband takes great pride--she will stop at nothing to solve the case. As evidence mounts, fine food, fraud, and kidnapping are all main ingredients in Capucine's search for the truth in this délicieux mélange of cuisine et le mystère."--Dust jacket.
