My Review:

Once again, a pacific northwest writer hits it out of the park! DARK SEED, the new novel by Lawrence Verigin, is a thriller about a disillusioned newspaper journalist in Seattle who is approached by a plant geneticist to write an exposé on the corporation he has spent his life doing research for. When he winds up dead under mysterious circumstances, our journey into a world of foul corruption and ever deepening conspiracy begins. This story touches a nerve as it weaves through the false guise of world food supply betterment through genetic research, as modeled by a number of corporate entities, and the totally dangerous and out of control commodities they produce. Mr. Verigin brings to light these truths with style, grace, and plenty of thrills and chills that kept me tuned into the bigger truth all the way to the end. I love all his characters, and the creepy faces of the corporate mercenaries smacked of total amorality. This is a world class read and very highly recommended!
