A gay wedding gone bad. A missing groom. An unsullied reputation at risk. Enter Russell Quant, cute, gay and a rooky private detective. With a nose for good wine and bad lies, Russell Quant is off to France on his first big case. From the smudgy streets of Paris, he cajoles and sleuths his way -- surprise, surprise -- to the pastel-coloured promenade of Sanary-sur-Mer. Back in Saskatoon, Russell comes face to face with a client who may be the bad guy, a quarry who turns up in the most unexpected place and a cast of colourful suspects. The vile sister, the best friend, the colleague, the ex-lover, the lawyer, the priest, the snoopy neighbour -- are they involved? Or is someone else lurking in the shadows? As he works through his case, Russell juggles his detective gig with the responsibilities of a personal life brimful of captivating personalities. Comical and serious (when appropriate), Anthony Bidulka gives readers an adventure full of memorable characters cast in a variety of novel locales. Taking a cue from the style and humour of Robert B Parker, and evoking Armistead Maupin with his wit and warmth, Bidulka's 'Amuse Bouche' is a rich, saucy and engaging read.
