The murder of an Italian grandmother in her restaurant kitchen sets more than spaghetti sauce simmering, as two rival immigrant families juggle the demands of cooking, love, and an Italian crime syndicate.
Hugh's road to Catholicism gets detoured by word of a murder. Phryne and Jack soon become embroiled in a family feud between hot-headed Italian restaurateurs with a history of grievances that include arson, forbidden love, stolen recipes, and unsolved murders. As Jack, having previously dealt with these two families, imposes a truce during his new investigation, Dot uses her clout to adjust a tenet of the church that Hugh finds most appealing.Written by
