When the body of acclaimed Chef Jean-Louis Brault and a shotgun are discovered in an antique Louis Vuitton portemanteau, the general consensus is suicide.
Brault had been understandably distraught, if not quite unhinged, amidst rumours that his restaurant La Mere Denis might lose its rare third Michelin star.
But when Capucine investigates the scene of the crime, she doesn't think it's only the bouillabaisse that smells fishy. And when Le Monde suggests that Capucine's investigation is a cover up for the lethal consequences of food critics everywhere - a profession in which her husband takes great pride - she will stop at nothing to solve the case.
