She also tells them that she had lost her parents very early in life. During Mr. Atkinson's dinner party, Leslie identifies herself as the head chef. She had used the Book of Meditation of Supreme Cooking during thirteen years to cook for Mr. Atkinson. Leslie got the Phantom Book at her father’s funeral. He had been suddenly fired. He died soon after, involved in a quarrel after drinking too much.

At Mr. Atkinson's study, Leslie reveals that she was replacing her father as the head chef. At first, she thought about revenge by poisoning Mr. Atkinson's meal.
