But behind the scenes, even the rarefied world of haute cuisine is feeling the bite and so Maravan - a Tamil dishwasher and undiscovered culinary genius - and Andrea - a stunningly beautiful waitress - find themselves out of a job and needing to find another way to survive.

After Maravan seduces Andrea by cooking her a dinner that fuses the aphrodisiac recipes of his ancestors with the necromancy of molecular gastronomy, Andrea hits upon a business idea: romantic catering for couples. But even culinary magic can't ward off recession and when their new company begins to struggle, they are forced to enter into a much more unsavoury business, plunging them deep into an underworld where murder and sex feed otherwise unquenchable thirsts...

MEDIA REVIEWS
Sex, spices and arms dealing: such is the recipe - perfectly executed - cooked up by Martin Suter * Le Monde *
Martin Suter's take on the culinary is as full of mystery as a crime story, only more exotic and more erotic * Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung *
Martin Suter reaches a huge readership with his novels. He writes exciting, almost cinematic stories and grabs his readers with tight, refined plots * Der Spiegel *
