Unsavory Delicacies by Russell Brooks

A three-course story collection with a side-order of revenge.

For fans of Barry Eisler, Robert Ludlum, and Clive Cussler. Three short stories of suspense with unsavory results.

Crème Brûlée—Rogue operative, Monique Beauvais, cons a software genius into selling her a coveted technology that would allow its user to control CIA drones while they’re in flight. And she will go as far as killing him in public in order to have it.

To the Last Bite—A renowned food critic—whose scathing reviews have closed down restaurants—gets a savoury surprise.

Shashlyk and Morezhenoe—CIA operative, Ridley Fox, leads a team against one of Russia’s most powerful crime families. He discovers secrets, but not one that he was expecting to find.

Three stories with three consequences. All containing three Unsavory Delicacies.

I got this ebook for Kindle from the author. It is a series of 3 short stories, Creme Brulee, To the Last Bite, and Shashlyk and Morozhenoe.
Creme Brulee is about an undercover agent on a mission. Monique is required to get info from Curtis, which she does. But the end doesn't come as she had planned...
To the Last Bite is about a Food Critic. Dennis has the best meal of life and LOVES the recipe. After finding what it is, he wishes he didn't know...
Shashlyk and Morozhenoe is about a Mafia type transaction involving undercover CIA agents. Ridley Fox confronts Maksim Antanov and gets what he needs, in a very unconventional way...
I personally liked Creme Brulee the best. Monique is a character that I could see myself in "cahoots" with. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, as it is definitely a page turner! As per author suggestion, I would definitely recommend NOT reading this book while eating! But don't let this detour you from reading it, as the parts I'm referring to aren't too descriptive.

You can buy the book at the following locations:
