“McGoran impressively integrates concerns about genetically modified produce with an action-filled storyline and fleshed-out characters…The disturbing, but scientifically plausible, secret at the heart of the bad guys’ schemes is an original one, and McGoran makes the most of it.”

~ Publishers Weekly, starred review 


“This is a rare rip-roaring read that’s also about something very serious—in this case, genetically modified foods. It’s somehow both escapist fun and a scary real-life wake-up call.”   ~ RealSimple.com


“This biotech thriller delivers a complex Frankenfood story, with lots of twists and turns leading to a startling ending. Readers who enjoy Michael Crichton or liked Paul McEuen’s Spiral, or even the nonfiction biothrillers by Richard Preston, will find much to enjoy here.”   ~ Booklist


[Drift] …heralds of a deep-dyed conspiracy to genetically modify innocuous crops like apples and corn in ways that will make your head spin. Drug dealers, suspect developers, Russian gangsters, mad scientists—Dunston’s got them all, and McGoran’s debut piles on the menace as if there were no tomorrow, which maybe there isn’t.   ~ Kirkus
