Summary

In the electrifying fourth book in the best-selling Thomas Prescott series, Prescott must prove a horrific crime in a small town is tied to Big Biotech.

When retired homicide detective Thomas Prescott learns he’s inherited a 250-acre farm in Tarrin, Missouri (pop. 2,100), he can’t get there fast enough. As he slowly acclimates to small-town living, he hears rumblings about a horrific crime in the town’s past. Four years earlier, a recently fired employee of the local grocery store enacted his revenge, shooting and killing the owner of the store, plus four customers, then turning the gun on himself. The crime appears to have been solved, but Prescott has his doubts.

Balancing farm life and a budding romance with the town veterinarian, Prescott begins reinvestigating the crime. On the surface, the case is cut and dry - a revenge killing gone bad. But what if revenge wasn’t the motive? What if the store owner wasn’t the target?

One by one, Prescott delves into the victims’ pasts. As Prescott digs deeper, he discovers the murders were 20 years in the making and soon finds himself in the unfamiliar waters of Big Biotech, GMOs, political payoffs, hired mercenaries, and the shadowy past of one of the most hated companies in the world.

Many red herrings...

This is the fourth in the Thomas Prescott series. I really enjoy the imaginative storylines and clever plots Nick Pirog comes up with in this series. Although this is the fourth each book can be listened to as a stand alone. Start with which ever book you want but do yourself a favor and start. This book takes Prescott out to Missouri (the show me state). He finds himself going up against the local police and large chemical company very similar to Monsanto. Why would he do this when he just moved into the farmhouse he inherited from his father? Well, doing what Prescott does best- minding others people's business and asking questions he is warned of by the local police. He was planning to drop it. His questioning the locals about the murder of five people at a grocery store was his own curiosity, he used to be a homicide detective. But the warning was a red flag. And then someone he's supposed to meet with is murdered. Pirog is wonderful at mixing sarcasm and humor into all his books. Johnny Heller does an outstanding job narrating Very HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. If you found this review helpful please indicate so. Thank You.

Loved it!

I really like this series. I have listened to all of them and just finished listening again. In these times I need a protagonist with a sense of dry humor as well as a great story. Nick Pirog has done it perfectly and paired with the great Johnny Heller you simply can’t stop listening. Thought provoking, entertaining, twisty mystery and backed with factual info you can check into for yourself. Just sad I have to wait until April 2021 for the next book.

Funny serious and all around good book

This book was a wonderful story. It had a lot of twist and turns throughout the story. Lit was a book I didn't want to stop listening to once I started. Funny, informative and makes you see it is okay to laugh at yourself. Made me want pigs!

Another great book

Thomas always a different woman and always goes through several scenarios toward the real conclusion of the mystery. Always just the right combination of seriousness and smart ass.
