Season Of The Harvest (Harvest Trilogy, #1)
Michael R. Hicks

What if the genetically modified crops that we’re being forced to depend on for food weren’t really created by man? What if they had a far more sinister purpose?

FBI Special Agent Jack Dawson investigates the gruesome murder of his best friend and fellow agent who had been pursuing a group of eco-terrorists.

Together, the two of them must battle a horror Jack could never have imagined, with the fate of all life on Earth hanging in the balance…
