Item description for The Garden of Evil by Bob Middlemiss Chris Holmes...
A brilliant but bitter sociopath has attacked the city's food supply; 5 people are dead, 26 remain ill from the assault. Gil Martin, a local family physician, and his wife Tara, the county's Public Health Officer, discover that the terrorist has found a way to incorporate the poison directly into the raw vegetables themselves. How is this possible? As the Martinss get close to cracking the case, the terrorist focuses all lhis venom on getting the Martins and their family.

Don''t Eat the Veggies Jun 22, 2006
What if natural poisons like ricin or anthrax could be tilled into the soil and thereby increase and spread their toxicity to other "organic" veggies? In this potent thriller by epidemiologist Chris Holmes, they can. And this is no joke, no put on, no over-active imagination on overdrive. The Garden of Evil has a scary plot, one all too possible. This book will keep you up at night and poses the question: How well do you know your neighbor?
Another great book Apr 10, 2006
This is the second bioterrorism thriller from Chris Holmes. Like the first, it is fast paced, and you will want to read it without stopping. It is in some ways more thought provoking than the first, containing a simple but effective metaphor for the development of the sociopathic personality.
