Do you enjoy reading fast-paced thrillers? How about books with Outrageous Sex? What about Lies and Political Scandals? What about the growing threat of Genetically Engineered Food? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this book is for you.
Sex, Lies, and Soybeans was inspired by today's headlines:
IS GENETIC ENGINEERING GOING TOO FAR?
IS SOY HARMFUL TO YOUR HEALTH?
MAD COW, SWINE FLU, RED TIDE ... WHAT'S NEXT?
FOOD INDUSTRY LOBBYISTS SPEND BILLIONS TO INFLUENCE POLITICIANS.
AND NOW: GE SALMON ... WHAT I CALL JURASSIC SALMON!
Sex, Lies, and Soybeans takes place in a dystopian future in which a variety of diseases have decimated most types of food animals. Soy has become the world's "go to" crop for protein, and the Soy Industry has become the world's most powerful food consortium. Their long-term goal: dominate the worldwide food market with genetically engineered synthetic food made with 100% soy. Their interim goal: saturate the American fast-food market. Texas is their first target. If they can conquer the influential state of Texas, other states will fall like dominoes.
But Victoria Blackburn, Chairman of the Texas State Senate's Food and Drug Committee, is blocking key Soy-Industry-sponsored legislation. Soy Industry attempts to influence her are unsuccessful, so Plan B is devised: penetrate her family and twist a few arms—or worse—to change the Senator's mind. Her brother, William, a slacker with an overactive sex drive, is identified as the "weak link" in the family.
Sex, Lies, and Soybeans is fast-paced entertainment that mixes sex, deception, technology, and screeching plot twists with a serious message: What will happen if we become too dependent on genetically engineered food?
