Pelops' troubles began when his father chopped him into stewing
meat and served him to the gods for tea. Although he's been remade,
and gifted with a talent for the culinary arts, there are
downsides--namely a missing shoulder and sea god with an
infatuation. Poseidon's nice enough, but he just doesn't take no
for an answer. Not only that, a wealthy, but mysterious patron has
been causing Pelops'clients 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 rival's machinations. Pelops asks the
gods for help, but when they turn him down, he realizes he alone
must find the woman's killer to salvage his reputation.
