A mysterious illness.

A midnight market.

A murdered priest.

Five strangers are drawn by bizarre and unexplainable events to the sanctum of an unlikely savior—a brash and reclusive genius known to the world only as an eccentric chef.

...but then, nothing is as it seems with the last of the earth-born shamans.

Desperate to recover a most unusual book, he pulls the five into a secret underworld of sorcery, sin-eaters, and spectral assassins, where he tricks and betrays each to a terrible choice: Renounce everything they love, or watch in vain as an insatiable adversary devours the earth.

One part literary, one part culinary, three parts magic, FEAST OF FIVE SHADOWS is a full-course occult mystery from the casebook of an unexpected detective.
