Tony Chu - the cibopathic federal agent with the ability to get psychic impressions from what he eats - has been kidnapped! He was ambushed, knocked out, brought to a remote location, and bound securely. His captor intends to feed Tony from a menu of his choosing, to find out what Tony can see, in order to learn from him. His daughter, Olive, has been kidnapped for the exact same reason. Two kidnappers, two captives, and two very different outcomes.

I think my favorite part of this series is when they introduce a new ability someone has. Wouldn't that be cool?

Tony is working at a new job and he's surprised to find he actually likes it. Though I would think that any job away from Applebee would be a good job. Except for maybe Colby's new boss. I'm almost caught up with the series, well, maybe halfway there, and I still have so many questions. Who is Olive's mom? Why is she living with Tony's sister? What happened to the toe girl?

I like how there is the running story line (the Vampire) and then other cases too so it doesn't feel like we're on some endless quest.  Keeps everything fresh!
