Summary
"Troubled restaurant inspector Danny Skinner is engaged on a quest to find the mysterious father his mother will not identify. He discovers that a television chef's book, The Bedroom Secrets of the Master Chefs, may hold the necessary clues. Unraveling this classified information is the key to learning the crippling compulsions that threaten to wreck his young life. His ensuing journey takes him from Europe's festival city of Edinburgh to the foodie city of San Francisco." "But the hard-drinking, womanizing Skinner has a strange nemesis in the form of model-railway enthusiast Brian Kibby. It is Skinner's unfathomable, obsessive hatred of Kibby that takes over everything, threatening to destroy not only Skinner and his mission but also those he loves most dearly. When Kibby contracts a horrific, debilitating, and undiagnosable disease, Skinner understands that his destiny is inextricably bound to that of his hated rival, and he is faced with a terrible dilemma." "The Bedroom Secrets of the Master Chefs is a gothic parable about the great obsessions of our time: food, sex, and minor celebrity, and it is a brilliant examination of identity, male rivalry, and the need to belong in the world."--BOOK JACKET
