Pelops troubles began when his father chopped him into stewing meat and served him to the gods for tea. Although hes been remade, and gifted with a talent for the culinary arts, there are downsides--namely a missing shoulder and sea god with an infatuation. Poseidons nice enough, but he just doesnt take no for an answer. Not only that, a wealthy, but mysterious patron has been causing Pelopsclients to cancel their engagements. Meanwhile, a rival chef is doing his best to destroy Pelops reputation, the woman Pelops loves appears oblivious to his feelings, and just before Athens most important festival begins, Pelops finds himself suddenly without olive oil--a serious concern for a chef. But things get worse when a courtesan is murdered at a dinner Pelops prepares--drowned in his newly-acquired olive oil. Seeking vengeance, the Furies arrive in Athens, and the rival chef blames their attacks on Pelops. Clients cancel in droves, and even Pelops friends are affected by his rivals machinations. Pelops asks the gods for help, but when they turn him down, he realizes he alone must find the womans killer to salvage his reputation.
