Goons from a huge food conglomerate who deal with genetically-modified seeds, are after the Mattman. He has some information they don't want leaked. Matt's only wanting the poor in starving countries, to be fed.

It's a race across countries in this first book in the "Fatal Harvest" series. Matt lacks social skills and Billy is too trusting. Cole is headstrong with Jill trying to teach him to trust God. As Matt and Billy attempt to hand over information to the right people, Cole and Jill are tryi
Matt researches a paper, and finds out secrets about one of the worlds largest food suppliers, and then is implicated in a murder. He sets off running from the bad guys, and his father and teacher set out to find him.
I liked this book, but didn't LOVE it. I do like Catherine Palmers style, but her books are a little preachy. I didn't love the ending of this book. I thought the ending was a little abrupt. She could have wrapped things up a bit cleaner, and added another chapter or two.

I really enjoyed this book. It started out slowly and I was not sure but then picked up to keep me interested through to the end. There is a very strong Christian message throughout about feeding the hungry and trusting God to keep him safe, that has a 16 year old boy travelling from the U.S. to Mexico and then Sudan to expose a dark secret, as well as his father and high school teacher who are trying to find him.

This story reminds me of a documentary my youngest son, Kevin, sent to me several years ago, and also book I read years ago about our threatened food supply caused by losing the stock that current hybrids were developed from. I wish there had been a bit more of this danger included in the story. This seemed to be an ideal vehicle to raise awareness of this potential danger to the world's food supply.
Fans of Debra White Smith’s Christian suspense may also enjoy Catherine Palmer. The combination of mystery and inspirational fiction may appeal to you. This is the first in the Haven series.
Lisa Carter
With the fast-paced adventure of an Indiana Jones movie, heart-pounding romance and faith-filled inspiration, Catherine Palmer's Fatal Harvest cannot be topped.
Candy Oosthuizen
At first I thought it would be a fast paced page turner. Turned out I was wrong. Easy read with a few exciting moments but on the whole a dull book.
Christy King
Very intriguing. Slow to start but once it did, I had a difficult time stopping. Almost completed in one sitting.
Quick, easy read. Entertaining but not believable.
clean, but slow.
