Though the Ivy League schools want Artesia High School, Texas student Matthew Strong to enroll, the computer guru is obsessed with finding a way to end world hunger. In his quest to turn Malthus on his head, Matt scrutinizes the files of Agrimax, one of the major international food suppliers where he finds abominable goings on at the expense of starving people. When a friend is killed, Matt flees to France desperately hoping to find an ally in the International Federation for Environmental and Economic Development (I-FEED). Matt¿s widower father rancher Cole had been distant from his son, but loves him deeply. He panics when Matt vanishes and turns to the only person he believes might have an inkling of where the lad is and what trouble he is in, his computer teacher Jill Pruitt. They hope to save Matt¿s life from those who want him silenced. Meanwhile, the teen meets Madam Losieau. Will she be the ticket for him to provide his data to the Chair of I-FEED located in the Sudan or is she a double agent ready to feed him to his enemies? FATAL HARVEST will remind readers (at least older ones) of Rachel Carson¿s environmental wake up call SILENT SPRING. The novel emphasizes making aware the plight of the world¿s hungry and exposing the avariciousnese of the mega agricultural conglomerates. The story line is extremely exciting in a David vs. Goliath manner with the sling shot and stones being a computer. Though the Madam Losieau link seems stretched, fans will appreciate this global bringing to light the international problem of world hunger packaged inside an action-packed thriller. Harriet Klausner
This book is so well written, you can't put it down. I first read this book several years ago and hundreds of books later it's one of the few books that comes instantly to vivid clarity. Humor, pain, suspense, realistic playful romance, social consciousness wrapped up in the most important thing of all Christ's love. Impossible to forget. I love all of Catherine Palmer's books, but this one, Treasures of the Heart series (especially Kiss of Adventure) Finders Keepers Series have been read many times over. Cherished favorites and old friends I will enjoy for years to come. Thank you for using your gifts to write Catherine and gifting us all with your talent.
