What if there was a genetically modified seed that could stop the famine in West Africa? Local growers would clamor for the product. The government would welcome the company with open arms. But are biotech companies aiming to stop world hunger or do they have a different agenda?
Lloyd Olsen, a top executive in a major western GM seed company, NewCrop, is asked to move to West Africa and head the company’s operation. He is unaware of its criminal intent.
A seed that could stop the famine and feed the hungry millions…
But a seed that kills itself and all other natural seeds in its proximity…
Eventually devastating the continent’s agriculture, and wreaking havoc to its biodiversity. Farmers would have no choice but to buy their yearly supply from NewCrop.
Either that, or starve and die.
Chambers, NewCrop’s CEO, extensively bribes a top agricultural official, Bathurst, to cajole and menace local growers into accepting the company’s products. Bathurst is prepared to murder anyone who stands in his way, and he hires a psychotic killer to silence everyone who threatens the operation.
A disabled senior agriculturist, Dr. Khan, discovers the conspiracy and tries to expose the real purpose of NewCrop. With the stakes so high, will he survive and save what’s left of West Africa’s crops?
Ken Fry once again weaves a tale of murder and suspense that will keep you turning the pages.
