|Summary, etc.:|| Two years after the opening of Liquor, New Orleans chefs Rickey and G-man are immersed in their restaurant, until a bad review hints that their "silent" backer has ulterior motives, and they realize it may be time to end their dependence on him. When Rickey is offered a plum consulting job at a Dallas restaurant, it seems the perfect way to beef up their bank account. But taking the gig will mean a reunion with an older chef with whom Rickey shared an unsettling encounter back in culinary school, as well as dealing with Texas businessman/restaurateur Frank Firestone. Rickey finally accepts the offer and revamps Firestone's menu, to rave reviews. Home in New Orleans, Rickey receives disturbing information that forces his return to Dallas. Then G-man learns that there's more to the story--and that Rickey is in Texas-size danger.--From publisher description.
