This was a fast paced and enjoyable read. Our main character is journalist Enzo Lee, who inadvertently because involved in the suspicious deaths of a judge and a corporate lawyer. On the surface, the deaths look incidental, but as Lee delves deeper he finds a connection to a company named AgriGenics.....the name even sounds dodgy! Dodgy is an understatement, as AgriGenics are involved in gene mutation and developing resistant crop diseases. In other words, biological warfare, which is not just being used on overseas farms, but on those in the USA. Their work is a far cry from what the original director had in mind when he launched the company to "feed the world" and end food poverty.
A relationship develops between the aforementioned judge's niece, Sarah, and Lee. Other journalists, a detective and the former company founder also join forces to try and bring down the company and it's megalomaniac director.
If you enjoy a good, fast moving thriller with a touch of conspiracy theory then you will certainly love this book. It does dip and slow down a touch about a third of the way through, but the writing, as a whole, is well delivered and researched. I couldn't put it down.
Robert B. Lowe is a journalist turned author and this is his first book.....let's hope he has a few more up his sleeve!
