Another entertaining episode featuring French Chef and reluctant detective Auguste Didier. Threats are being made against the life of music hall star William Lamb, and Auguste is persuaded to take a job as cook at the theatre's eating-house, in order to keep an ey on Lamb. Unfortunately, he can't prevent Lamb's murder, which seems to be linked to the dissapearance of a treasure from Windsor Castle. Enter Inspector Rose of Scotland Yard to try and sort it out. Amusing characters and convincing period detail makes this book an enjoyable read, as the professional detective and the reluctant amateur join forces once again.
