We've all heard the expression `hell hath no fury like a woman scorned'. In `To the Last Bite', a chef knocks the socks off a scorned woman...I have a very sound piece of advice: take care not to upset a chef before you've sampled his food.
This was a most enjoyable read. Small though these little snacks might be, Russell packs nice juicy filling ingredients of tension, suspense, and wryness, into them, leaving you pleasantly satisfied.
This is a book that consists of three short stories. The first is "Creme Brulee". Monique Beauvais meets up with Curtis White at a gourmet restaurant in Old Montreal. He was supposed to bring her something in exchange for money. He seemed like a nerdy guy. She thinks things are going just as planned. Things don't seem to be quite right, and I was surprised by the ending!
The second story is "To The Last Bite". Dennis Kirby was at a french restaurant where he was supposed to eat and do a review. The owner of the restaurant looked familiar, but he just couldn't place him at first. He had a visitor at his house who brought him a special meal. I couldn't believe what the meal was and what happened at the end!
The last story is "Shashlyk and Morozhenoe" which has a lot of action and a surprises too!
Even though this was a short book, I really enjoyed it! Sometimes in short stories you just can't get into what is going on, but that was not the case here! The first two short stories were my favorites There was suspense, humor, and um..well, you just have to read the book to see what else! I recommend this book!
Disclaimer: I received this e-book from the author. I was not compensated for my review. My thoughts on this book were in no way influenced by the author. They are my personal reflections based solely on MY experience while reading this novel.
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.
Shashlyk and Morozhenoe - Ridley Fox is a CIA operative. He has been assigned to take possession of some nationally important documents that are in the possession of Maksim Antanov. Antonov is known to be linked to the Arms of Ares and is next in line to take over after his father retires. But the secrets discovered by Ridley will have Antonov in his pocket for as long as he wants.
Watch for my review for Russell Brooks' next upcoming thriller Chill Run which will be available on December 1, 2011. Follow him on his website as a reminder <...>.

Unsavory Delicacies is a trilogy of short stories, namely - Crème Brûlée, To the Last Bite & Shashlyk and Morezhenoe. The three stories are very short, very fast paced & quite thrilling! The stories are all interconnected by a restaurant (not the same restaurant, mind) & an underlying theme - revenge. Crème Brûlée begins in a restaurant in Old Montreal (love stories that take place in my native Canada!) & features spies & some serious intrigue. To the Last Bite is about a food critic, Dennis Kirby, who takes great pleasure in ripping restaurants apart in his column. This one is not for the faint of heart, or those with a delicate stomach! Shashlyk and Morezhenoe takes place in Russia & features a character from Crème Brûlée, Ridley Fox & again features spies - this time with a Russian Mafia twist.
All 3 stories are excellently written - my only regret is that they are so short. I think that all 3 could have been a lot longer & still would have been as good. These left you wanting more - a lot more.........but maybe that was Brooks' idea all along!
