“It’s a great read. Bad Seed reveals a great life lesson gone wrong.” NPR
Aurora Blanc, a young, brilliant and beautiful Stanford science student, makes her way from a welfare motel childhood to a Stanford genetics lab. She creates a revolutionary new health food product and forms a company to produce it. But when a child dies after consuming her company’s product, everything is put at risk.
A legal crusade and a vendetta by the child’s father, Rabbi Smith begins. He believes that godless genetic engineering caused his son’s death. Aurora’s fight to preserve her freedom and save her company reveals the momentous ethical and legal issues arising from cutting edge GMO science.
Bad Seed reads as if Michael Crichton had teamed up with John Grisham. This book announces a new fiction talent and will do for genetically-modified food what Jaws did for beach holidays. In Aurora Blanc, the Instagram Age finds its ideal villain, and in Rabbi Smith, her implacable, humble adversary, we locate a new kind of American hero.
