Bone In The Throat

Anthony Bourdain

Bone In The Throat by Anthony Bourdain (Paperback ISBN 9781786895189) book cover

Available as Paperback, eBook

From the bestselling author of Kitchen Confidential

All is not well at the Dreadnought Grill. The chef has a smack habit, the owner has been set up by the FBI and in the midst of this, the sous-chef Tommy is just trying to do his job.

As depraved as it is hilarious, Anthony Bourdain’s first novel is street smart and spiced with drugged-up savvy, foul-mouthed feds and salty mob speak.

With a cast of unforgettables like the hitman who covers himself in clingfilm to avoid leaving fingerprints and a plot with more twists than a plate of spaghetti, Bone in the Throat rocks through the streets of Manhattan at a blistering pace.

“A superb tale of violence and backbiting set in the seething testosterone-heavy company of a crew of New York cooks, and simply towers head, shoulders and upper torso above everything else”
