Publisher's Summary

Captain William Avery is persuaded to investigate, and soon discovers a web of rivalries and hatreds, both personal and political, simmering behind the club's handsome façade, and in particular concerning its resident genius, Alexis Soyer, "the Napoleon of food", a chef whose culinary brilliance is matched only by his talent for self-publicity. But Avery is distracted, for where is his mentor and partner-in-crime Jeremiah Blake? And what if this first death was only a dress rehearsal for something far more sinister?

    "Kitchen intrigue"

    This is the third story in an excellent series. The mystery here ( who is the poisoner) isn't all that engaging, but the behind-the-scenes look at the infighting, jealousies and theft in up-scale kitchens in London men's clubs, circa 1840's, is very detailed and very interesting. I'm guessing that these same intrigues are still playing out in high-end restaurants today. There are a LOT of characters to keep track of, and I thought the team of Blake and Avery didn't get much page time. Still enjoyable, and Alex Wyndham never disappoints.

    "Love this series and while different still as fun!"

    Just awesome! I'm not very judgemental and find joy in most books I read. This series is at the top of my list, however and I found this one to be as enjoyable as the rest. the narrator is terrific and the history mixed in is enlightening.

    "Held me prisoner"

    I purchase Audible books to listen to while on my 45 minute walk each day. So I expect to be able to have them last for several weeks. "The Devil's Feast" pulled me in and I was compelled to listen when I got home, when I was getting dressed, when I was driving. The details about the workings of the kitchen and the chef were, to put it mildly , fascinating. I had to discover who the culprit was but also more about each character.
    This story creates an opening to hear more about the characters after this episode. I really hope so.
    The narrator was phenomenal except that he barks out the dialogue. I am embarrassed to find fault with his skill, but I believe his delivery altered the content a little. I shouldn't even mention it.
    This is the third book I have read in this series. The research is daunting. I learned so much about society and conditions of the time. Would I recommend this....without hesitation.
