Mystery & Suspense • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

A hopeless chef, a failing restaurant, and Mob connections the FBI wants to expose. The premise for Anthony Bourdain's first novel is as warm and entertaining as the culinary travel show that made him famous. Narrator Kaleo Griffith makes the most of the main character, Tommy Pagano, letting the listener feel his emotions, which range from whining to desperate. Griffith’s quick tempo keeps the pace of this crime caper moving forward through the back alleys of the Bronx and Brooklyn. He conveys the danger inherent in this male-dominated world in his delivery of realistic dialogue and steamy sex scenes. The listener will laugh as the pressure mounts, and Tommy must do whatever it takes to save his business—and his life. M.R. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2016]
