Publisher's Summary

In a world of corruption and wickedness, a world where your next meal may be your last, there's only one man who can taste the difference between what you can eat and what will kill you. He's the super-sized, super-talented FBI agent whose specialty is food security. He's the bona fide card-carrying superhero unlike any other. He's the fat man with the super taste buds and the super immunity. He's Timothy Blanchard, the titular hero of The Taster.

The Taster starts with a meal and a murder. A whirlwind of meals and murders follow. It's enough to make you ravenously hungry and keep you furiously turning pages.

absolutely terrible reader

I completely agree with the previous reviewer. I couldn't finish this because of the absolutely awful narrator. Pity because the story sounds interesting but it's impossible to listen to. Avoid.

Good Book - Horrible Reading

I sense that this would be a fine novel, but the reading is absolutely horrible. There are mispronunciations beyond counting, and the voice talent seems to be unfamiliar with the concepts of punctuation and phrasing. He also seems to be in a hurry for some reason. If you can get past the absolutely abysmal reading of the book, it's a very enjoyable story.

I've never recommended this for an Audible track before, but I'd buy the hard copy, and I'd avoid Knowles-narrated books in the future.
