Author(s): Anthony Bourdain
All is not well at the Dreadnought Grill: the chef has a smack habit, the owner has been set up by the FBI and in the midst of this, the sous-chef Tommy is just trying to do his job. This novel is street smart and contains drugged-up savvy, foul-mouthed feds and salty mob speak.
* 'Gangster fiction to feast on.' - Independent * 'Raw and cooking. Rare and well-done.' - AA Gill * 'A superb tale of violence and backbiting set in the seething testosterone-heavy company of a crew of New York cooks, and simply towers head, shoulders and upper torso above everything else.' - GQ * 'Wonderful fun, a perfect book to read at the beach.' - Michael Crichton, New York Times Book Review * 'A recipe for a very good read.' - Sunday Telegraph * 'Sharp, funny... if it's gangster rap you want to read then Bourdain is your man.' - Express
