I found this novel extremely believable. Gmo products are big money business . The public are very much kept in the dark regarding what little extras go into produce.

Its long overdue for scandals like this to be Independently Investigated once and for all.

This may be a novel but it could be true! Its a brilliantly written mix of science and fiction. Seth the main character is the original involuntary spy and his story is crafted to allow you to feel as though you are with him all the way through.

An Involuntary Spy may never win literary prizes but it definitely deserves high commendation for it’s attempt to alert humanity to the devastating consequences of GMO crops. Hats off to Eade for his research and his ability to tell us something so important within the context of a pacy thriller, especially as the information he provides is actually in the public domain but unknown or ignored by the vast majority of people who are consuming those foods.

The other thing it brings home is that the US is now a place where it can be difficult, impossible or even dangerous to tell the truth about anything where the government is involved. This is itself as scary as GMO food and its effects on human health and wellbeing. You would think that a scientist who discovered a cover-up on the scale of our hero Seth Rogan would be a hero. Not at all, he is a fugitive running in fear of his life. This constitutes the thriller element, but it is a sad fact that you only need read the alternative sites on the internet to know that modern so-called democracies are anything but, and willing to go to great lengths to protect themselves from whistleblowers who threaten to reveal corruption and undermine their sources of wealth.

Eade might like to take on vaccines next. It is definitely associated with autism in children. The increase is said to be epidemic in the US - for example in 1970 one in ten thousand children had autism, by 2013 it was one in fifty. This can be due to GMO damage, but also to vaccines which contain toxins such as mercury which cause brain damage. Children in most states now must be vaccinated to attend any kind of school or day care. It seems strange but fiction may be the way to get the facts out to the people who are being affected. And guess who gets rich? Big pharma and their government cronies.

When a genetic modified food biologist turns whistleblower and escapes with top secret reports to Russia you get an awesome spy adventure. An Involuntary Spy is a fast paced thriller that is well written, researched and held me cover to cover. Seth Rogan’s life on the run in Russia takes a shocking turn. Spy training, falling in love with a beautiful young teacher and trying to stay out of trouble was a blast. Plenty of twisted and turns kept the plot steaming along with lots of political tension and an action packed ending that absolutely rocked. I’m looking forward to the next Kenneth Eade novel.

The reason I have given this story five stars is not because it is an exceptional plot, but because it held me in suspense throughout as to what would happen if and when the involuntary spy made it back to America and was able to legitimately spill the beans about the extraordinary dangers associated with GM foods in relation to health, wealth and politics. I found myself thinking,"If what is being written about GM foods is really true, then the sixth extinction is well under way."
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.

The storyline of this book couldn't be any more topical on a day when the media announced certain processed foods were linked to cancer.
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 👍🏻

This thriller has all the ingredients of a page turner. A fantastic plot, well drawn characters and a writing style that is both controlled and artful. The book manages to explain some of the wider concerns of genetically modified food whilst delivering a story that you'll remember for a good while to come. Its handling of contemporary issues doesn't detract from the book and in fact makes it all the more plausible. Good. Marvellous. Outstanding.

I really enjoyed this book. Fast paced, suspenseful, intriguing, and the author is more than a little knowledgeable about the subject of GMOs. It really makes you wonder how far the government is prepared to go to prevent its secrets getting out there. Recommended.
