The celebration of the return of some of paranormal caterer Sin du Jour's staff is quickly quieted when one member does not appear. Then Bronko and Lena are taken by Allensworth to a very special restaurant: Gluttony Bay. With a spectacular view of Guantanamo Bay, Bronko discovers he is the "special guest chef," with Lena as his sous chef, at Gluttony Bay. In this highly exclusive dining room, only one thing is on the menu: humans. As the rest of the crew comes to rescue them, Bronko and Lena are forced with preparing a truly terrifying menu and taking on brutish restaurant workers, all hoping to escape a hellish kitchen deadlier than any they have faced before. Witty humor balances out macabre actions, with the fast pace and supernatural settings blending horror and fantasy into a delightful meal for the mind.
VERDICT The penultimate novella of the "Sin du Jour" series (after Greedy Pigs) continues Wallace's imaginative romp through New York City restaurants, supernatural diners, and all-out devilish fun.
