9780857052940: Art of Killing Well

Nothing could please a chef more than a chance to learn the secrets of a Baron's castle kitchen. Having travelled the length and breadth of the country compiling his masterpiece, The Science of Cooking and The Art of Eating Well, Pellegrino Artusi relishes the prospect of a few quiet days and a boar hunt in the Tuscan hills. But his peace is short-lived. A body is found in the castle cellar, and the local inspector finds himself baffled by an eccentric array of aristocratic suspects. When the baron himself becomes the target of a second murder attempt, Artusi realises he may need to follow his infallible nose to help find the culprit. Marco Malvaldi serves up an irresistible dish spiced with mischief and intrigue, and sweetened with classical elegance and wit. His stroke of genius is to bring Italy's first cookery writer to life in this most entertaining of murder mysteries.

Recensione:

'Camilleri's heir apparent ... lingers on your literary palate' Jake Kerridge, Daily Telegraph.

'Like a cross between The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared and the slyest, cleverest of Christie novels, The Art of Killing Well is one of those rare books that will keep you grinning from beginning to end' Russel D. McLean, Sunday Herald.

'Malvaldi has cooked up a gentle, atmospheric Agatha Christie-esque number with plenty of tongue-in-cheek wit and period detail in a mystery that finishes with a cute and clever twist... A tasty Michelin three-star book!' Sunday Sport.

'Ideal holiday reading, funny, compelling, unpredictable and immensely satisfying' Alannah Hopkin, Irish Examiner.

'Original, intelligent, smoothly executed - Malvaldi is a master chef of crime fiction' Christian Bourgois,  Livres Hebdo.

'It's not easy upon a first appearance for a newcomer to earn themselves a place at the table of legendary detectives, alongside Brother Cadfael or Hercule Poirot. Yet with this tour de force Marco Malvaldi succeeds wonderfully' Alexis Liebaert, Marianne.

'The literary equivalent of a delicious, sophisticated dish, cooked with skill and served with grace' Corriere della Sera.
