Spy Thriller: An Involuntary Spy Kindle Edition
- "Eade's skill with writing dialog is brilliant. His technique for propelling a story forward is second to none. Bind a controversial subject about the environment, the unraveling problems of US governmental secrecy, the transparency of the Internet, and a good old-fashioned thriller and you have Kenneth's next step into prominence in the public's eye." Grady Harp, Literary Afficionado
- "Any who want a more realistic, modern-day James Bond complete with contemporary ethical concerns will find themselves held hostage to the fast action and intrigue in An Involuntary Spy, right up to the satisfyingly-unpredictable conclusion made all the more powerful for its real basis in today's uncertain experiments, compliments of Monsanto, Dow and other genetic manipulators." D.Donovan, Midwest Book Review
- Eade's use of alternating chapters between Seth's altered life and the events that lead up to it - is not only a clever literary tool, but it also keeps readers entirely engaged. Nominated for a 2014 Rone Award in mysteries/thrillers, An Involuntary Spy is absolutely riveting, suspenseful, and an eye-opener to the controversial effects of genetically engineered food. San Francisco Book Review
- "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" 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?" Ross Winters, Bubblews
- How does a genetic biologist working for a large biotech company, developing genetically engineered food, go up against government corruption and fraud when he tries to expose his employer? Kenneth Eade's political thriller, "An Involuntary Spy", tackles the dark world of the GMO food industry. Digital Journal
- Named one of 100 best science fiction novels by IMustRead.com, "One of the best science fiction books, a tale of espionage, conspiracy and intrigue. Keth Rogan, a biologist, is forced to become a spy. In a sequence of events that force him to act, in order to do the right thing, and fight forces far more powerful than him."
From the Author
- "It just could be that this book breaks the real life controversy wide open. There are untold mysteries that may not be known for decades. Altering the foods we eat can not be done without consequences. If natural is best for human health, GMOs are the worst." Barbara Stanley, Atlanta Health Examiner
- 'An Involuntary Spy' is an action-packed political suspense thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Once you start reading it, you won't be able to put it down, because the amazing writing and the likeable characters will pull you in from the first chapter. There is adventure, romance, passion, and excitement. All these elements turn Eade's book into a real roller-coaster. Jo Ammons, NY Books Examiner

About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
With that said if you take most of the technical out it was an outstanding read. With some wonderful characters and a few twist you do not see coming. Others you expect but there is a few in there I thought would go another way. Once I over looked the technical things I really enjoyed the listen.
I thought the narrator has a smooth voice and I did enjoy listening to him. I felt he brought out the tones great for the characters. I really liked Seth and a few others. There are a few wonderful characters that you grow to care about. Some that will surprised you I know they did me.
Honestly if I had read this and not listen to it on audio I would have skip a lot of it. Listening to it on audio I feel sure made this a much better read. The author does give us a powerful message and one that you might want to take a look at. Seth is a bad spy but gets his points across and doesn't back down from what he believes in. I am sure I wouldn't have done half as good as he did when push came to shove. He might be a little nerdy but his heart is in the right place and really all he wants to do what is best for the world while living a quite life.GMO in foods should be everyone's worry and is something we should read up on. I felt the author gave an outstanding story of what could be come of the world in the future.
Some reviewers were put off by the amount of real life facts presented in this book. This author is right on in his presentation of this spy story.
There is the frustration in not knowing what one reader can do . The author portrays a chemical company that is controlling the US and then the world's seed supply esp. with its ubiquitous weed killer. Well substitute the real company starting with an 'M' and it's pesticide 'R' and you have the real life situation. All sanctioned by the congress, FDA, and EPA.
Most if not all of Europe knows the dangers and has banned GMO foods. So any foods imported from the US have to be produced in separate fields.
This company spends millions to block product labeling so that the consumer is kept in the dark as to the GMO dangers.
I applaud this author for informing the public as to the hidden dangers of these altered foods. This book is fiction but reflects true life situations happening to the US now!
events and situations that implore the public to wake up to what is happening to the real world food supply.
As a tract teaching the dangers of GMO, the novel is remarkable and memorable. Since the details are totally convincing, it is now difficult for me to order lunch or visit the local supermarket without risking my life. The more I remember the observations about GMOs and the compliant government agencies, the emptier my shopping trolley becomes. Weight watchers could perhaps suggest this book as a guide to losing pounds that would be at least as efficient as counting calories..With the plague of obesity, the novel could produce good unintended consequences.
Back to the actual thriller though, I should mention the well observed backdrops in the St. Louis laboratories and then the cities of Russia. Then there are the closely studied girl friends, allies and enemies of Seth. Even Seth, an unoffensivce Superman, - reference is made to James Bond but Seth is real while JB is 2 dimensional - provides character development through the course of the plot, something that is really rare in this genre.
I admire this book and commend it to any reader willing to learn while being totally entertained by the involuntary spy. Once begun there is no way but forward to its satisfying end. Congratulations Kenneth Eade.
The book also had food for thought. The concerns of the main character were real. One had to consider how much of this was fiction. The issue was the safety of biologically altered foods. Of course this is fiction. Or is it. Within the story the dangers were expressed in detail. Government collusion was also involved. Okay, it was compelling fiction.
After the novel concluded, the author told of facts that he found that showed that indeed there is a problem. From his statements I cannot definitely conclude anything. I would need more input. But it does warrant some further investigation and reporting.

At the end of the story which was not unexpected plotwise, I then read the author's notes. No wonder his leading character spoke so knowledgeably and so passionately. What he was claiming was based on research, political chicanery and corporation dishonesty.
You will not put this book down. It will hold your attention. It will give you food for thought and the desire to do something positive. And you will always read food labels (for what they are worth!) and eat organic food.
Seth had uncovered a link between GMO and cancer but his company didn't want to know. In fact, they tried to kill him to keep it a secret! His decision to run to Russia wasn't perhaps the best as he was then described as a spy!
The plot is very good and the author obviously has a good knowledge of scientific research and Russia. Seth is a believable character and his decisions draw the reader to their own conclusions.
I will definitely be reading this author again 👍🏻
Its long overdue for scandals like this to be Independently Investigated once and for all.
