Publisher's Summary

London, 1842. There has been a mysterious and horrible death at the Reform, London's newest and grandest gentleman's club.

A death the club is desperate to hush up.

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?

    Story
    "As good as last book, brilliantly read"
    Where does The Devil's Feast rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top ten


    What other book might you compare The Devil's Feast to, and why?

    Difficult to compare. Some historical detail but doesn't overwhelm story


    Which character – as performed by Sam Dastor – was your favourite?

    Sam Dastor is brilliant; probably Blake and the Committee Members


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Too long for that but I did want to find out the ending


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth a listen, in essence a good murder mystery
