About the Author:

Nan Lyons has been a food and travel writer for over twenty years, contributing to Bon Appétit, Travel + Leisure, More, Hamptons, L’official, New York Newsday, as well as creating the Fielding’s Agenda series and the Access Walking guides. In collaboration with her husband Ivan, she wrote the first novel with a food background, “Someone is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe” which was then made into a major motion picture. They went on to write four other novels as well as scores of articles on food and travel.

From Publishers Weekly:

At Libby's, Manhattan's hottest restaurant, where the glitterati in publishing, show biz and finance have regular tables, Libby Dennis, redheaded former dancer, juggles seating arrangements and reservations with aplomb, unfazed until she hears that the president wishes to lunch there, too. The Secret Service begins the required prepresidential-visit vetting, checking out the staff from lowest kitchen prepper to Libby's son, the maitre d'. Head investigator Birnbaum wonders what is bothering the unflappable proprietress, even as he falls under her spell. Perceptive readers are alerted to a secret early on, leading them to wonder who else will find out, and what the repercussions might be of a 20-year-old indiscretion. Subplots and current liaisons abound in this chic and racy mystery from the authors of Someone Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe. At Libby's, where deals are made and broken in the dining room as fast as breast of duck is seared in the kitchen, the repartee is as nouvelle as the cuisine, the characters are venal, eccentric and rich, and the action positively dazzles.
