The Vico

Service: Sarah Gilmartin

The waitress. The chef. The chef’s wife. Three different stories, but which one contains the truth? When Hannah learns that famed chef Daniel Costello is facing accusations of sexual assault, she’s thrust back to the summer she spent as a waitress. Hannah remembers how the chef’s attention morphed from kindness into something darker. His lawyers breathing down his neck, the chef is in a state of disbelief: is it all to fall apart because of something he can barely remember? A story of power, abuse and complicity in a novel about the facades we maintain, the lies we tell and the courage it takes to face the truth.
