Description

When France's top chef, Marc Fraysse, summoned the world's press to make a shattering announcement, rumors abounded that he was about to lose one of his three coveted Michelin stars. Instead, upon arriving at his remote restaurant on a volcanic plateau in central France, they were greeted with the news that the troubled genius had been murdered, and the message he intended to deliver was never made. Seven years later, his killing and the identity of his killer still remain an enigma.


Enzo Macleod takes on his fifth cold case and delves into the big business and high stakes of French haute cuisine. As winter sets in and snow gathers along a volcanic horizon, he retraces long-cold footsteps across a remote hilltop. But unraveling the complex web of relationships that surrounded the brilliant and mercurial chef—a spurned lover, a jealous wife, an estranged brother, an embittered food critic—also leads to strange parallels with his own life. In opening up this celebrated cold case, he finds himself reopening old wounds from his past.

      • content: In the latest in the terrific Enzo Files series, forensics expert Enzo MacLeod works to solve cold cases with new scientific techniques. Simon Vance narrates as we learn the details of the unsolved murder of Chef Marc Fraysse. The scene is the Fraysse family restaurant in central France where, with the help of a lovely local gendarme, Enzo attempts to decipher the many clues. Vance fluidly shifts from Enzo's Scots brogue to the softer cadences of the various French characters. Most impressive is his portrayal of Sophie, Enzo's daughter, whose Scots-French accent is a delight. May's story and Vance's performance make this an audio experience that one wants to hear in one listen. K.O. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine

        January 24, 2011
        Culinary heights, human depths, and a surprise romance await Enzo Macleod in the remote reaches of central France in May's fifth mystery to feature the Scottish forensics expert (after 2010's Freeze Frame). Scant evidence and apparent lack of motive stymied the initial investigation into the murder of celebrity chef Mark Fraysse seven years earlier, but Macleod soon discovers less than savory secrets, from the late chef's in-house adultery and gambling addiction to his troubled relationship with older brother Guy, the current patron of Chez Fraysse along with Fraysse's widow. The familial dysfunction resonates strongly with Macleod for reasons he's long repressed, prompting him to take a painful look at his own life—including his estrangement from the mother of the infant son he has yet to see. While the action sequences can come across as forced in this introspective entry, it offers subtle, complex pleasures to the discerning palate.
