Food For Thought
1 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Great Zambini and Connie comprise a mind-reading act in a carnival. Their act is for real because Connie can read his thoughts, but now he has developed the power to read hers.

Zambini may be great but he is also nasty, and when Connie receives an offer from a man who really cares about her to quit the carnival for a normal life, she accepts. Her lover is also a member of the carnival, Johnny the fire-eater, but when Zambini's new powers inform him of her impending elopement, he murders his rival in spectacular fashion.

Johnny's horrible death is dismissed by the rest of the carnival folk as an accident, and that without a policeman in sight, but Connie knows the truth, and walks out on Zambini.

What happens next? Obviously revenge, and it comes from an unlikely source, though not so unlikely if you've been keeping an eye on the minor players.
