"Investigative team Blake and Avery find themselves entangled in a case involving political conflicts, personal vendettas, and England's first celebrity chef. London, 1842. Captain William Avery is persuaded to investigate 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. What he soon discovers is a web of rivalries and hatreds, both personal and political, simmering behind the club's handsome facade. At the center is 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 is only a dress rehearsal for something far more sinister?"--

I enjoyed this title, the third in the series. Carter's research is always excellent, and I found this mystery centered around first celebrity chef Alexis Soyer and the world of Victorian haute cuisine interesting. Readers of the author's earlier titles knows that the sterner (and more stomach-turning) aspects of Victorian life and crime are not avoided. In "The Devil's Feast", Soyer's vision of a future with better nutrition and clean food preparation for the poor as well as the rich is endangered by a poisoner who Blake and Avery have a difficult time stopping.
