    On a brisk autumn day, a 13-year-old boy stands on the shores of the gray Atlantic, near a silent amusement park and a fading ocean resort called the Alhambra. The past has driven Jack Sawyer here: His father is gone, his mother is dying, and the world no longer makes sense. But for Jack everything is about to change. For he has been chosen to make a journey back across America - and into another realm. One of the most influential and heralded works of fantasy ever written, The Talisman is an extraordinary novel of loyalty, awakening, terror, and mystery.

    Animated by a passion for food, wine and justice, the Gourmet Detective travels to Provence to investigate a shadowy business deal between two vineyards. But before he can even sample the delights of Pate de Grives on triangles of hot, crisp toast, he encounters a corpse leaning against a cart in the vineyard. Was he really gored to death by sangliers, wild boars rumored to live in the abandoned caves surrounding the village? And why would a tiny vineyard want to buy out its enormous neighbor - and competitor - at any price?

    The gourmet detective realizes that the Alpine Springs health resort is not a typical spa somewhere in the middle of his first cocktail. Where other retreats promote abstinence, exercise, and bland food, this quiet little Swiss chalet preaches indulgence. Guests are allowed to eat, drink, and smoke as much as they want, and exercise is strictly optional. For this epicure, it is paradise - and it may also be his doom. He has come from London to speak about fine dining, but while here he fully intends on enjoying himself.

Now, after the business' doors have remained closed for years, the next scion of the Belvedere clan has determined to seize his birthright...if only he can find the annotated family cookbook, which has mysteriously disappeared!

    When the world's finest restaurateurs need assistance, they know they can rely on the Gourmet Detective's discriminating palate to get the job done. After a family of eccentrically dysfunctional British aristocrats hires the sleuth to design a menu for their medieval-theme castle resort, he anticipates a great opportunity to explore a forgotten but nonetheless mouth-watering cuisine. A cake walk? Maybe not, but with the bloodshed of the Middle Ages centuries past, it should at least be safe. Wrong again....
