A BookPage Best Mystery of the Year
"Thrilling and truly l gante.... Walker has created an
object of desire more delectable than the festive meals Bruno
always prepares for his friends." --The New York Times Book
"Engagingly droll.... The icing on the g teau is Bruno himself. Of all the cops in all the cop books I've read, he is the one whose home I would like to visit, to partake in one of his delicious-sounding meals and perhaps a bottle of Bergerac red." --Bruce Tierney, BookPage
"[A] pleasing puzzle." --Kirkus Reviews
"A veritable feast of world-class skullduggery. A genuine plus is the passionate descriptions of the cars and the experience of driving them. This souped-up mystery is another winner." --Open Letters Monthly
