The Captain Loves Caviar
A Goldfarb Adventure
by Chilli Kippen

On the surface Antonio Peppos, better know as Peppe, seems pleasant and willing to oblige – the perfect manservant – but all is not as it seems. The cabin steward to a group of A list passengers on board the five star cruise ship Pacific Belle, Peppe is headed to Singapore with a secret agenda…

There is something about Peppe, but who can put their finger on it?

When it comes to masterminding plots, he’s not alone! It seems the only innocents on board are the unsuspecting passengers – Alexander Pushkin Goldfarb, an eccentric Jewish gambler from New York, included. In an upstairs-downstairs glimpse at cruising, the passengers get much more than they bargained for on this trip of a lifetime.

The Captain Loves Caviar is a capricious, whimsical read with a highly developed sense of the absurd that transports the reader on a journey to an astonishing and unpredictable ending. Chilli Kippen has created an authentic list of eccentric and sophisticated characters that will delight the reader with their hilarious Machiavellian antics.

“So hilarious! A riotous romp that’s sharply intelligent and refreshingly zany.”
Selena Summers, author of Feng Shui in Five Minutes
“Comic novels can be whimsical or delightful or absurd or just plain funny. Rarely are they all these things. The Captain Loves Caviar is… I loved reading it, I loved its craziness!”
Howard Albrecht, comedy writer and author of The Oddfather and See You in Nairobi

Read three chapters, and laughed out loud many times. How clever you are. The description of the characters is delicious...

We couldn't stop laughing about your book. It was one of those laughs that you lose your breath and I’m just now trying to work out which bit. It will come to me today xx

You keep your readers guessing, which is a good way to have ‘em.
Adored the albatross, what a great and unexpected beginning. Will he feature any more, I am wondering?

Just love some of your phrases. Not so sure about some of the characters as yet, especially as I am (believe it not) somewhat squeamish about body parts, fluids etc. —As for the rest, I keep seeing (even dreaming about) what a wonderful adult animated film it would make. Who to make? George Lucas?
Overall, congratulations, Chilli, on with the next one.

This book is terrific!!! And, it would make a GREAT movie---one kind of in the Grand Budapest Hotel genre, only this one on the sea.
