Blackwell North Amer
Business is slow for Nestor Chaffino, pastry chef to the rich and famous, until he's invited to cater a party in a villa on the Costa del Sol. When Nestor is found frozen to death in a walk-in freezer with a notebook in his hand, the party guests gathered that evening are the natural suspects. But who could have it in for a harmless cook?
The answer, it turns out, is just about everyone who happens to be staying in the house. Nestor, while quietly stirring his sauces and whisking his egg whites, had decided to publish a compendium of gastronomic secrets that revealed, along with the culinary tricks of his trade, more than a few damning details of the hosts' and houseguests' private lives. To what lengths would they go to ensure that Nestor maintained a more permanent sense of discretion?
