The Sin du Jour crew caters to the Shadow Government in Greedy Pigs, Matt Wallace's fifth Sin du Jour Affair“I never did give them hell. I just told the truth, and they thought it was hell.”
Politics is a dirty game. When the team at Sin du Jour accidentally caters a meal for the President of the United States and his entourage, they discover a conspiracy that has been in place since before living memory. Meanwhile, the Shadow Government that oversees the co-existence of the natural and supernatural worlds is under threat from the most unlikely of sources.
It’s up to one member of the Sin du Jour staff to prevent war on an unimaginable scale.
Between courses, naturally.
Sin du Jour returns in full force with the fifth installment, Greedy Pigs. If you haven’t started the novella series about a catering company that caters (gotta love puns!) to a high-powered supernatural clientele you are missing out. In Greedy Pigs, the caterers find themselves double-booked for two inauguration ceremonies – one human, one not. As they work to adjust on the fly, one of their own is not acting like himself. The action comes to head at the inaugurations.
Wallace provides commentary on the current American political system, he manages to keep it light as to not push away readers who are sick of the current news cycle right now. Greedy Pigs delivers a lot of the interpersonal happenings of the catering crew in a big way. While the books do standalone quite nicely, I do recommend reading Idle Ingredients before reading this installment.
Now patiently waiting for Gluttony Bay and Taste of Wrath!
