Killer Critique by Alexander Campion
Like French food? Like murder mysteries? This book is for you!
Kensington Books sent me an ARC of this book for review. It has been published and you can get a copy at your local bookstore.
Capucine is back again in a tale of exquisite French cuisine and dead restaurant critics. Sometimes it's just not safe to give a bad review...
This was a strange little tale. Capucine loves high fashion and expensive shoes; she even chases criminals in them. Her husband is an excellent chef that writes critiques. They know those who died as well as the suspects.
Capucine is getting nowhere in her investigation and more people are dying. In frustration, she goes even further afield in search for the truth. This part was a bit far-fetched to me, but I've never visited Paris. Perhaps what was suggested is common there.
The author does twist the tale even more as a trap is set for the killer. You'll have to read the story yourself to find out just what the twist was.
