    Max Moreton is a rising culinary star and his Newmarket restaurant, The Hay Net, has brought him great acclaim and a widening circle of admirers. But when nearly all the guests who enjoyed one of his meals at a private catered affair fall victim to severe food poisoning, his kitchen is shuttered and his reputation takes a hit.

    Overall

    There are traces here and there of Dick Francis, who is a consummate writer. I suspect he did a little line editing. If this is, as I suspect, a virgin effort for his son, his father should have been a less tender editor. I am now 2 hours and 40 minutes into this book and there is no trace of a mystery or any indication that there will eventually be a plot. I suggest a good writers' group for young Felix, with people in it who'll be honest about his manuscript's shortcomings. I'm sorry Dick Francis has retired; his son hasn't yet learned enough about plotting and timing to replace him.
