Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Fresh off his success in solving the Marco Polo murders, Neil Flambé heads to Mexico City to take part in the Azteca Cocina — a two-week battle of the chefs. But things start to go wrong at the very first battle. Neils box of secret ingredients contains more than he bargained for. Theres a note inside, telling him that Isabella has been kidnapped. He must lose in the final, or else shell be killed. The kidnappers are obviously having fun — with every ransom note they send, they include a lock of Isabellas hair, not realizing how clever their captive really is! Knowing that Neil and his super-nose will be looking for her, Isabella does what she can to help, rubbing her hair in the smelliest thing she can find at each location. Neil can smell garbage, flowers, and animals, but this only helps him find out where Isabella has already been — not wheres she heading next! In order to solve this mystery, Neil will need Larry's knowledge of Mexican history and Spanish, Sean Nakamura's portable forensic lab, and Angel Jicama's mentorship. Hell have to delve into Aztec history, symbolism, and even into the real ruins that are buried under the modern city. But will he figure it all out in time?

Synopsis:

Neil heads to Mexico City to take part in a high-profile battle of the chefs, but things start to go wrong at the very first cook-off when Isabella's kidnapped with the stipulation that if Neil loses in finale, all will be well, but if he wins, Isabella will die.
