Description

Neil, “the flamboyant, irrepressible chef” (Kirkus Reviews), hits the road in his food truck and drives right into a new case in the sixth book in The Neil Flambé Capers, the culinary mystery series celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey calls “good fun.”

Neil has lost his beloved restaurant. Though he misses it dearly, he and his friend Larry are headed on a new adventure. They are travelling to the Salsa Verde ranch in Arizona with their new food truck to participate in the legendary food truck gathering, the Broiling Man Festival. Once he arrives, Neil discovers that the Verde ranch is in danger of foreclosure, at the mercy of a developer who wants to turn it into housing and a factory farm. The only hope for the ranch is a treasure map left behind by the very first Verde, a chef who discovered a mine while escaping from a murderous army colonel. Neil and Larry are on a quest to find the treasure, but each time they think they’re close to finding something, they come up with nothing. Will the boys find the mine—and the treasure—in time to save Salsa Verde ranch?

About the Author

Kevin Sylvester grew up like lots of kids, with a basketball hoop in his backyard and a neighborhood full of basketball-loving kids. He’s a pretty good outside shooter, but at 5 feet 6 inches, he can only dream of actually dunking a ball. And yes, he does dream about that—a lot. He used to watch the Niagara University Purple Eagles play, the men and the women, and still has a Purple Eagles patch his dad gave him. Dad (six feet tall) was a very good basketball player and taught philosophy at NU. Kevin was a sportscaster with CBC Radio for many years and covered the Toronto Raptors and Vancouver Grizzlies in their early years. It’s hard to find a sport Kevin doesn’t like. His book Baseballogy explored the great stories and stats behind baseball. Game Day introduced the people who work behind the scenes to put on sporting events. Both books were nominated for the Silver Birch Award.
