A Menu of Death by Lucy Pireel is a collection of 8 recipes to titillate the taste buds of the mind and will leave the reader hungry for more. Human frailty is cleverly dissected and served on a platter of spatter or sometimes stirred into a rich stew best delivered to The Walking Dead. Greed, remorse, love, hate, murder, revenge, are all on display and skilfully blended into a soufflé of death best served straight out of hell. My favourite episode was Reunion where a woman searches for her sanity after her husband's death. Apart from some minor editing hiccups this compilation of tasty meals will satisfy any reader looking for some Stephen Kingesque vignettes. I highly recommend this FOUR STAR A Menu of Death for this Halloween.
