I thought this a delightful book. Russell Quant is an artful detective. When I read this book, it brought to mine another seemingly artful detective, Archy McNally, the bon vivant hero written by Lawrence Sanders.

In Amuse Bouche, Russell seems to have come to the almost insolvable mystery .. a man who seems to have left his fiance at the altar, only to have disappeared somewhere in Paris following a previously planned out honeymoon itinerary, but then reappearing in a most distressing fashion.
I love that Anthony Bidulka was able to keep me guessing till the very end. I look forward to reading more Quant mysteries.

I really wanted to love this and hoped I'd found the first of a series I would keep reading. But, alas, I won't. It's well written (except for some misusage of words, i.e. "most unique" a professional writer should be able to avoid) but not satisfying.

This is the first in the series, and I suppose the investigator is meant to not be all that astute, but I found that annoying. One big plus was the setting of Saskatoon -- not a city many books are set in.

I was disappointed.
