There’s nothing better than spending a lazy afternoon with a cup of hot chocolate and an action-packed thriller that can help you forget about your surroundings and take you to a world of spies, agents, and unlikely heroes. If you plan on spending such an afternoon, then “An Involuntary Spy: A GMO Thriller” by Kenneth Eade is one of the best choices you can make. Adventure, corruption, passion, excitement, and an average guy who never thought his perfectly normal job would get him into so much trouble. What more could you ask for?
Seth Rogan works as a biologist for the largest biotech company in the world. He loves his job and his simple life, but things are turned upside down when he is asked to do some tests on the company’s genetically engineered food. He has always tried to do the right thing, so what he discovers determines him to reveal the corruption of the government. All of a sudden, he finds himself running from people who want him dead. He even becomes an involuntary spy, even though the only things he knows about spies are from movies. And he was never quite convinced about how realistic they were.
Seth Rogan is that kind of hero all readers fall in love with the second they meet him on the first page. He is a normal guy living a normal life, but when he is put in a difficult situation, he is intelligent enough to outsmart his opponents. It’s him against the US government, and even though this thought frightens him, he’s not about to give up that easily. After all, he doesn’t regret that he told the entire world the truth about genetically engineered foods.
One of the greatest, yet scariest aspects of this novel is that the plot is very realistic. Given the fact that we never know for sure what our food contains and where it comes from, it’s easy to imagine the action in “An Involuntary Spy” playing out in real life. Kenneth Eade wanted to draw people’s attention to this issue and determine us to ask ourselves some important questions. I must say that he did a great job because, as you read the book, you can’t help but wonder if some of the things presented aren’t actually happening right now.
“An Involuntary Spy: A GMO Thriller” pulls you in from the very first chapter. No doubt, it is a book that you won’t easily forget.
