This story turned my stomach, I have to say. It's a detective story where the detective in questions can see inside the minds of things and people he ate so he knows how they die. It now reminds me of I Zombie, the TV show where she eats brains to find out about the victim.

I didn't think this was gross unless he was eating. He doesn't want to do it, but he basically becomes a cannibal. I would think he would get a horrible food poison from eating rotting meat, but hey, I guess not. They call him a cibopath- someone who can know everything that happened to the food they are eating which is why he is a vegetarian. He works with a partner who is an old pro at this.

I thought it was a decent mystery and a good story, but the business of eating was just gross. Still, it was a well done story and I want to read more of it. Its a different story idea.
