"Peter Pringle has managed something special: a thriller with super plants, deadly toxins, and international intrigue. And an appealingly original hero who understands, as the author does, the fascinations and dangers of the botanical world." -- Jeffrey Frank, author of "The Columnist" and "Bad Publicity"
"Meet Arthur Hemmings -- botanical sleuth -- whose witty ways with women pervade an otherwise rough and tumble tale of academic science and corporate greed messing about with the future of the world's food supply." -- Robert M. Goodman, Dean of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Rutgers University
"Peter Pringle has cultivated a beguiling new hero in his botanical spy, Arthur Hemmings. Who knew the sexual lives of plants could be so intriguing -- and so fraught with danger?" -- David Ignatius, "Washington Post" columnist and author of "Body of Lies"
"At last -- a serious, intelligent thriller. Peter Pringle has written a pacy novel with believable characters and a storyline that will not only keep you reading into the small hours but raises real issues crucial to our future. An amazing achievement." -- Phillip Knightley, author of "The Second Oldest Profession" and "The First Casualty"
"A born story-teller, Peter Pringle has pulled off the rare feat of turning his journalistic expertise into an absorbing novel. In the botanical detective Arthur Hemmings, Pringle has created a Hercule Poirot for our times -- with a distinctive dash of James Bond." -- Anthony Holden, Shakespeare biographer and author of "Big Deal and Bigger Deal"
"A twenty-first-century tale with the suspense, mystery and humor of the classic detective adventure story. Only Arthur Hemmings can solve a case as baffling as the real-life Polonium 210 murders." -- Nicholas von Hoffman, author of "A Devil's Dictionary of Business"
