Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Chef by James Patterson, read by Micheal Ziants.

Police detective by day, celebrity food truck chef by night, now Caleb Rooney has a new title: Most Wanted.

In the Carnival days leading up Mardi Gras, Detective Caleb Rooney comes under investigation for a murder he is accused of committing in the line of duty - as a Major Crimes detective for the New Orleans Police Department. Has his sideline at the Killer Chef food truck given him a taste for murder? 

While fighting the charges against him, Rooney makes a pair of unthinkable discoveries. His beloved city is under threat of attack. And these would-be terrorists may be local.

Sexist tripe

No room for this kind of macho tripe in 2019, it was nothing more than one ego trip to another..

Awful

I generally don’t write negative reviews but this book was absolutely appalling, completely unbelievable and the main character and plots were laughable

Totally ludicrous

Any book marketed as a thriller needs to be believable, this is just full of far fetched nonsense that will sell only because of the alleged authors name Narration was ok, but nothing could save this book, I recommend you give it a miss

Dull

Not really my cup of tea...had to finish the listen just in cast something spectacular might have happened. It was like watching a B series movie with very poor acting.

Didn’t like narrator

I read a few chapters couldn’t get into the story. I then (to late I admit) read the reviews and decided to stop torturing myself and send the audio book back to Audible. Hope I make a better choice next time xxx

Not his best

Took me a while to finish this book as it really wasn’t my favourite. Killer chef was quite a hard character to like and therefore you weren’t as interested. Quite disappointing as good have been a good serial character

predictable thriller

A bit like fast food I enjoyed it but wanted more. more quality and a twist would have been good
