Lloyd Olsen is an Englishman and works for NewCrop. He's sent to Gambia to meet with certain people and convince them to approve NewCrop's new genetically modified crop development program.
This is also a story of a man so messed up, that murdering people, animals, anything, gives him pleasure. Be warned that some is graphic and disturbing.
Once in Gambia, Lloyd quickly realizes that he's been told lies, and murders begin. Lloyd also appears to have been something of a Ninja sometime early in this life, and that helps keep him alive when others are being murdered.
Romance happens, and it's rather sweet. So is Lloyd's attraction to a feral beach dog. He feeds him and names him Beachy. Beachy in turn loves Lloyd. The man feeds him and doesn't try to hurt him.
Meanwhile, Lloyd tries to understand who he can trust. Hard to do when you can't come out and ask.
I say no more because I'd ruin how Lloyd finds out the truth. And then how he makes sure the right action is carried out. This all the while the madman is trying to kill him.
Wonderful book and good information about GMO seeds. The good and the bad.
I enjoyed reading the book very much and I feel that it has all the makings of a bestseller. I cannot wait to read more of Ken Fry's writings!
This suspense novel turns the disturbing sexual violence level up to eleven in places, just so you're aware. That isn't to my personal taste, but I understand that it is often part of the genre, and it certainly effectively conveys the evil of the villains and the fear they engender. The writing style is old school classic thriller. No modern snarky dialogue here. If you have enjoyed Fry’s other work, you will likely enjoy this one.
Ken fleshes out his characters fully. His writing style draws you immediately into the scene and emotionally connects you. You feel the turmoil and anger of his antagonist, Lloyd Olsen, and you fall in love with Beachdog, a very intricate part of the storyline.
The content of the story educates the reader on what could be the ultimate danger in experimenting with GMO crops, in this case, Africa. I have given Suicide Seeds by Ken Fry five stars in spite of my in deference to the extensive violence.
The best thing in this novel is the way it educates the reader on the danger of genetically modified crops and how outsiders can use their promise to make money with no regard for the lives of the consumers.
My only wish was for more explanation of how a naive businessman turns into Jason Bourne. There were a couple references to skills he'd learned in a previous lifetime, but more backstory would have filled in the holes for me. Exciting book!
Thank you for a good read Ken.
