Little Indiscretions

by Carmen Posadas

Did you know that chefs don't give away all their secrets in published recipes. Nestor Chaffinch does, and he decides to publish these 'Little Indiscretions'. Is that why he ends up dead? Or is there another reason entirely? And what has it got to do with a Brazilian clairvoyant, a homosexual judge and a dubious art collector. A convoluted tale of secrets, ghosts and fondant chocolates. See if you can guess the outcome.

Extract

His moustache was stiffer than ever, so stiff a fly could have stepped out to the end, like a prisoner walking the plank on a pirate ship. Except the flies can't survive in a cool room at thirty below zero, and neither could the owner of the blond, frozen moustache.
