The Water Lily Cross (2007)
"Lawrence Kingston, retired professor, bon vivant, and would-be sleuth, is asked to help search for a botanist friend who has gone missing. With nothing but a scrap of paper bearing a bewildering cryptic message, he begins to investigate." "Using what he terms his "Times crossword logic," he discovers that his friend was experimenting with aquatic plants and has stumbled upon a horticultural breakthrough with staggering implications. The unprecedented discovery could benefit countless lives in undeveloped countries, generating billions of dollars globally." "Learning that influential and malicious people are involved in his friend's disappearance, Kingston becomes increasingly concerned. As he continues to investigate, he becomes inextricably ensnared in a web of bizarre incidents and unexplained murders. Too late to quit, and deceived by a duplicitous femme fatale, he finds himself in circumstances that spiral out of control, plunging him deeper into jeopardy in a corporate world of ruthless men who won't be stopped. But Kingston presses on, knowing that his missing friend's life and his own hang by a slender thread."--BOOK JACKET.
