This is a fast-paced agro-terrorism thriller set in England, the US, Pakistan, Yemen, and Ethiopia. A dark-skinned Pakistani veterinary technician in England endured a career of racial discrimination and verbal abuse. Just before his retirement, he steals infectious agents for serious and deadly animal diseases to avenge his mistreatment. He sells these agents to al Qaeda to supplement his meager pension. Al Qaeda decides to launch an attack on US livestock and crops using these and other infectious agents. In the US, former ISIS jihadis, all US citizens, are recruited to spread the infectious agents. Their attacks are wildly successful and result in the US facing food shortages, inflation, and rioting against the government. These devastating effects on US agriculture expose the serious inadequacies of US intelligence agencies This third novel in the Winston Sage Trilogy is another chance for Win Sage to display his offbeat detective skills.
