Unsavory Delicacies – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat and Think With Your Taste Buds
Unsavory Delicacies is made up of three short stories that will give you a taste of tantalizing suspense.
Crème Brulee – Monique Beauvais an agent for Ares. She has no qualms about double crossing those who supply her with the information she has been assigned to acquire. Curtis White is truly a nerd that has no qualms about drooling like a dog when he meets the beautiful Monique. But this story has a moral…Never underestimate a Nerd.
To the Last Bite – Dennis Kirby is a food critic who has a tendency of “killing” a restaurant due to the comments he posts in his column To the Last Bite. After eating one of the most delicious meals of veal and liver he puts in a request to meet the Chef hoping to find out his cooking secret. Of course the Chef declines to give out his secret recipe. Kirby has nothing but praise for this superb meal and reflects his delight in his next column. But what was really in such a spectacular dish? Kirby will soon find out.

pocket for as long as he wants.
