This is a complex story line packed with unexpected twists and turns in nearly every chapter. It might stymie a reader looking for a lighter, more predictable read; but it’s just the ticket for fans well used thrillers and mysteries and who seek a bit more complexity and challenge in their leisure reading.
The ultimate messages (about caring for one’s job and environment enough to take action about accepting the consequences of said action, and about the dangers of genetic modification and government interactions with such programs) are clearly presented along with action-filled chapters supercharged with an adrenalin rush at every turn.
Big business, big government, scientific snafus, intrigue, spies - it’s all here. 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 a 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
“ Best-selling author Kenneth Eade is not in the business of writing books purely for entertainment. An outspoken critic for pesticides and genetically modified food - a highly critical issue in today’s news - Eade has produced a story that he states ”is a work of fiction, but the threat is real.“ Written in third person, An Involuntary Spy is about an ordinary citizen whose indomitable efforts to expose the truth about GMOs suddenly turns him into a ”wanted man“ by the U.S. government. Eade’s choice in designing a highly intelligent, yet socially awkward, character is a perfect complement to the many whistleblowers who have graced history over the years. Much like Seth Rogen, these people are not James Bond figures, but simple, everyday folk who have risked their lives and, as Seth puts it, exposed ”reports to help my fellow Americans, not to betray them" [/p]
Eade’s use of alternating chapters between Seth’s altered life and the events that lead up to it - as well as plethora of unnerving factual information about GMOs - 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
“Eade’s skill with writing dialogue 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. Highly Recommended.” Grady Harp, Literary Aficionado
“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
“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
“Kenneth Eade has gone where no man has gone before-he’s made the GMO controversy into a spy novel.” I Publisher News.
“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 cannot be done without consequences. If natural is best for human health, GMOs are the worst.” Barbara Stanley, Atlanta Health Examiner
