About this product
- DescriptionWINNER OF THE 2015 BEST INDIE BOOK SHELF UNBOUND NOTABLE INDIE AWARD Thanks to a drunken accident in western Uganda, Martin and Andrew think they've found the next culinary craze to hit Manhattan's trendy restaurant scene. They're about to find out they've stumbled onto a centuries-old secret that, once unleashed, may be impossible to contain. Everyone wants something from the new discovery. Andrew wants a chance to make a decent living and escape his dead-end job. Self-absorbed, greed-driven Martin wants to profit from a cut-throat industry that envisions a revolutionary product lurking in the find. Military organizations at home and abroad have their own, more violent agendas. And, hidden in a west Ugandan valley, a tribe of guardians wonder if an ancient prophecy is reaching fulfillment, or if the world discovered their secret too soon. In a story reminiscent of Crichton and Brown's corporate and religious thrillers, John Butziger presents a potent mix of adventure, conspiracy, and the mystical. From the petty double-dealing of a culinary network channel to the high-stakes world of cyber-espionage, Butziger weaves a complex adventure where few can be trusted-and all want to control the power of The Second Tree.
