The bible tells of two trees growing in the Garden of Eden but we only remember one – the one that Adam and Eve partook of removing them forever from ..Show More »the Garden and dooming the rest of the world with evils and mortality. Martin, an executive on a culinary network, has an accident in Uganda – but he doesn’t come back empty-handed - he brings back fruit. Andrew, another culinary network employee takes the fruit, grows it and discovers its delicious taste and shares it.
There’s more to the fruit than its beautiful looks and delicious taste though, it brings with it greed, lust for power and more. Martin wants more for his own personal desires and greed; Andrew wants more as it has become his livelihood. Traveling to Uganda Andrew discovers the truth behind the fruit as well as getting caught up in a military operation and cyber espionage.
Andrew has a decision to make – will he make the right one? Or will greed and obsession take over?
This is my first experience with the author, John Butziger. Butziger did an excellent job of laying out the plot and introducing the conspiracy theories. He ties everything together, leaving little unanswered but you know there will be more because the secret is out and people never give up – not when faced with wealth, recognition and power.
This was an action packed thriller with a mix of religion, espionage, and human nature. Complex but easily followed, Butziger created an adventure that will captivate and interest anyone who picks this book to hear.
I liked Scott Thomas as the narrator; he injected excitement and enthusiasm as well as concern and confusion where appropriate. He is a very good narrator.
There were no production issues with this audio book.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good thriller, mystery or reflection on human nature. This book will have you considering who you are long after the book ends.
