Publisher's Summary

When the greedy owner of a Las Vegas movie catering company tries to muscle in on a local, family owned business in Honolulu, it leaves a very bad taste in the mouths of the natives, and the battle for paradise begins for Joseph, a young Hawaiian chef.

As far as Joseph's father, Sid, is concerned, this is an invasion on par with Captain Cook, and the mainlanders have to be stopped at all costs. As Joseph defends his family, he encounters a TV producer rebounding from a bad breakup and suffering from an unrelenting chemically induced erection; the producer's androgynous, New Age-y assistant; and a trash-talking, lap-dance-addicted stroke survivor. Adding to this frenetic luau is Joseph's old-school Polynesian uncle; his bodybuilder cousin; and his politically correct, retro-Hawaiian girlfriend. With the lines drawn and the locals breathing fire down their necks, the Sin City boys decide to enlist the services of an ecstasy-popping ex-marine hit man. Then things go horribly wrong - or, depending on how you look at it, just right.

Mark Haskell Smith's Delicious is an uproarious, delectably dark mystery that offers a take on Hawaii that definitely hasn't been endorsed by the tourist bureau.

What the Critics Say

"Delicious is engrossing from page one. This is a deft and wild comic novel drawn from utterly fresh material. I look forward to anything Mark Haskell Smith writes." (Jim Harrison)

"Haskell Smith writes well, especially about sex and food, and the multilayered plots move so fast they feel fresh. Think Elmore Leonard meets Mario Batali." (Richard Rayner, Los Angeles Times)

"Rated NC-17 for intermittent comic violence, good-natured swearing, cannibalism, humorous amorality, and some truly perverse sex." (Kirkus Reviews)
