the black chili
SO CHEN WAS USING DRAGON CLAW, EH? Li Fai, owner of the Golden Phoenix restaurant, has just discovered that his lifelong competitor and jerk of a nemesis, Chen, has started using magick to enhance the dishes at his restaurant, reaping massive profits in the process.
Fai can't stand for it. He'll be damned if he's going to let that sneaky, no-talent Chen beat him. Fai has a plan of his own. Chen wants to play with magick, eh? Two can play that game.
It might cost Fai a small fortune, or maybe even his soul, to beat Chen at his own game, but that's a small price to pay for a restaurant packed with customers.
The Black Chili is one of the Seven Coins Drowning, a collection of novels and novellas exploring the enduring myth of the Seven Deadly Sins.
