The Last Supper by Rosemary Shrager

Cosy crime and cookery collide in this brilliant debut novel by TV celebrity chef Rosemary Shrager.


Prudence Bulstrode, once doyenne of the celebrity chef circuit, has left London behind for a peaceful retirement in the country... and walks straight into a murder case.

When an old television rival, Deirdre Shaw, is found dead at the Cotswolds manor house where she was catering for a prestigious shooting weekend, Prudence is asked to step into the breach.  Prudence is only too happy to take up the position and soon she is working in the kitchens of Farleigh Manor.

But Farleigh Manor is the home to secrets, both old and new.  The site of a famous unsolved murder from the nineteenth century, Farleigh Manor has never quite shaken off its sensationalist past.  It’s about to get a sensational present too.  Because, the more she scratches beneath the surface of this manor and its guests, the more Prudence becomes certain that Deirdre Shaw’s death was no accident.  She’s staring in the face of a very modern murder…

Peer & Press Reviews

The Last Supper is a charming, hugely entertaining book.’ Retired chef Prudence Bulstrode is cranky, stubborn and insightful; an utterly brilliant creation.  I can’t wait to see what she gets up to next.

M W Craven, author of the Washington Poe series

I’ve long admired Rosemary as a woman of many talents.  I just hadn’t realized that writing is one of them.  The Last Supper has pace and style and a very interesting cast of characters.

Richard Vines, food critic

Rosemary Shrager has created a welcome addition to the ranks of female amateur sleuths.  The Last Supper is a witty, light-hearted mystery, in which the author has served up a tasty treat.

Simon Brett, author of the Blotto and Twinks series
