Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

Tony Chu is a detective with a secret. A weird secret. Tony Chu is Cibopathic, which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. It also means he’s a hell of a detective, as long as he doesn’t mind nibbling on the corpse of a murder victim to figure out whodunit, and why. He’s been brought on by the Special Crimes Division of the FDA, the most powerful law enforcement agency on the planet, to investigate their strangest, sickest, and most bizarre cases.

Mana recenzija/My review

Tonijs kļūst par aģentu F.D.A. aģentūrā, kas, šķiet, pamatā nodarbojas ar vistu un to produktu, tai skaitā gaļas, kontroli, kas kopš putnu gripas uzliesmojuma aizliegti. Kas padara Toniju īpašu ir viņa spējas, apēdot, piemēram, ābola kumosu viņš spēs pateikt, kas ar to ticis darīt, un, kā tas izaudzēts, līdz tam brīdim.

Ar šādām spējām Tonijs nav vienīgais, līdzīgi ir arī ar viņa jauno partneri (īslaicīgi gan) Meisonu Savoju. Ainas ar viņu vismaz pagaidām bijušas iespaidīgas; tā teikt badass. Neiztrūkst arī visai grafisku un asiņainu epizožu, bet tik ļoti, lai riebumā novērstos vai kā, arī nav.

Var arī drusku pasmaidīt un iesmiet; ir neliels (melnais) humors. Patika arī segmenti, dodot nelielu tēla aprakstu. Ir gan labas bildes, kuras pētīt, gan teksts pietiekoši daudz; nav tā kā vienā mirklī sāc un gandrīz vai esi pie beigām.

                                                                                                                                           

Tony Chu becomes an F.D.A. agent which mostly deals with control of chickens and their products including meat that are illegal since the outbreak of bird flu. What makes Tony special is his ability, after eating something, for example an apple, even just from a bite he knows how it’s been grown and what has done to it until that moment.

Tony isn’t the only one with such abilities, his new partner (but not for long) Mason Savoy have something similar. All parts with him are spectacular and just badass. There are some gory and bloody moments but not so bad to turn away or something like that.

At some points the smile just creeps in, there’s a good, little (black) humor. I also liked the parts with little description of some characters. The art is good; enough to spend some time to stare at them and enough text so you don’t finish the book in a flash.
