"Killian Lone comes from a long line of gifted cooks, stretching back to the seventeenth century, and yearns to become a famous chef himself. When he starts an apprenticeship under Max Mann, the most famous chef in London, he looks set to continue the family tradition. But the reality of kitchen life is brutal. Even his fellow apprentice, Kathryn, who shows Killian uncharacteristic kindness, can't stop his being sucked into the vicious, debauched world of 1980s fine dining, and gradually he is forced to surrender his dream"--Page 4 of cover.

Excellent read. Based on a true story of a famous and gifted chef. A bit dark, but fascinating & illuminating story about obsession and how an abused child grows up into an adult with a warped sense of duty, love, and obligation.
no explicit graphic abuse - but implied.
