Worse yet, Chez Flambé is closed by an order of the Department of Health! Suddenly, Neil finds himself amid the cook-off of his life—and his entire reputation is at stake. Then he discovers the root of all his problems: a dark curse that has plagued Flambé chefs for centuries. Has Neil finally met a mess he can’t smell his way out of?

Tired of looking down holes in the road for a 'real' man, Sally can't believe her luck when she finds one on a building site. Rough, bearded and covered in cement dust, he is just what she is looking for. But Jimmy Pinchbeck is the site owner on his day off, and turns up to take her out wearing an Italian suit and white shoes, and driving a Merc. He is nuts on blondes, crazy about Abba, and appointing Sally as chef at his sordid sports club is all his dreams rolled into one. What happens next is a trial of strength between diametric opposites - Jimmy, the archetypal conman, knows every trick in the book, but even he can't find out what makes Sally tick. Read about shenanigans with staff and jollies in the jacuzzi as the club lurches from one financial crisis to another and Jimmy talks his way out of everything, while Sally struggles to hold the catering enterprise together and defend her staff from his depredations.
