A criminally good meal followed by just desserts. "Benny Lacoco is a "food fence." If a load of frozen shrimp falls off a truck, or perhaps a few cases of olive oil, or some nice expensive wine with an unpronounceable name, Benny is the guy who can move it for you. No questions asked. He's well connected and a man of respect. But there is another side to Benny. He's a gourmet cook who once aspired to be a renowned restaurateur .. but business (and other matters equally unsavory) got in the way. Now Benny has been summoned to cook a special meal for some of his associates on the occasion of the big man being sent up the river. This gives Benny the chance to prepare the meal of his life, A Meal to Die For, because word has it that someone in their midst is a rat, and some things just can't be forgiven."
