France’s legendary gastronomical “Guide Gabin” is throwing a rousing party at its new company museum in Paris, and the Luxembourg chef Xavier Kieffer is right in the middle of it. During the celebrations, one of the books on display disappears – an extremely rare edition of the “Guide Bleu” from 1939, only a handful of copies of which exist. Kieffer initiates the investigation. Soon, he discovers that this “bible of the gourmet scene” has already resulted in the deaths of several people. But what’s so dangerous about an over 70-year-old restaurant guide? What is the blue book’s secret?
