"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.… (mais)

Dr. Lawrence Kingston receives a call from an old friend asking for his help in finding her missing husband, a former colleague of Kingston's. What he discovers leads him into a whirlwind of threatening actions and high-stakes biology experiments. The friend appears to have hybridized a water lily which will convert seawater to freshwater, and Kingston is convinced that the man was kidnapped as a result. Kingston has cause to rue his involvement in the disappearance on several occasions before stumbling on the solution to the case and bringing about a happy ending.

I enjoyed this book although I felt the author spent too much time on mundane details in between the detecting activities. I really didn't need to know what Kingston had for breakfast, lunch, or dinner each day when he wasn't off investigating somewhere! Despite this quibble, I would recommend this book for anyone who likes a good mystery salted with a touch of humor. ( )

I don't love the books set in london. However there was a good premise the lead character was not some one I was rooting for. Wont read more from this series or author. ( )
