Neil, the flamboyant, irrepressible chef (“Kirkus Reviews”), travels across the pond for a real honey of a case in the fifth book in The Neil Flambe Capers, the culinary mystery series celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey calls good fun.
Neil Flambe has had enough with solving crime. After his adventures in Japan, he is back in his beloved restaurant doing what he does best cooking. And he has a very special guest. Lord Lane from England has requested he serve a meal centered around an ancient jar of honey discovered in London. But when Lane disappears afterward, Neil receives a request from the Queen herself to come across the pond and find out what happened to him.
As soon as Neil arrives, he is swept up in a mystery involving the great works of Shakespeare and food. Neil may know quite a bit about the latter, but being chased by thugs through the streets of London and following centuries-old clues is not exactly his forte. Will Neil be able to put the pieces together in time or will he let everyone down, including the Queen?”
