From the Inside Flap
on the international art scene is the source of the hilarity and fizz in Peter Mayle's new novel. He flies us back to the south of France (a region some readers of his irresistible best-sellers believe him to have invented), on a wild chase through galleries, homes of prominent collectors, and wickedly delectable restaurants. There are stopovers in the Bahamas and England, and in New York, where that glossiest of magazines, Decorating Quarterly, reflects the cutting-edge trendiness of its editor, Camilla Jameson Porter. (Camilla has recently broken new ground in the world of power lunches by booking two tables on the same day, and shuttling between them, at the city's trendiest restaurant.)
It is Camilla who has sent our hero, Andre Kelly, to Cap Ferrat to take glamorous photo-graphs of the houses and treasures of the rich, famous, and fatuous. He happens to have his camera at the ready when he spots a Cézanne being loaded onto a plumber's truck near the home of an absent collector.
From the Back Cover
"A delightful blend of crime and cuisine." --San Francisco Chronicle
"Easygoing wit and dead-on satire. . . . Mayle is becoming an American Evelyn Waugh. . . . He virtually establishes a lip-licking new literary genre--call it dinnerotica." --People
"As light as a successful soufflé. . . . Charm abounds." --Boston Globe

This book would make a great "B" movie with the right casting.
This is the first novel that I have read from this author. Before completely discounting his work I will have to read another one of his books.
