Two schemes uncoil—and, very quickly, begin to unravel—on the same day in the Australian town of West Glassport…
Jean Hima isn’t happy with the way her life has been going. First, her husband leaves her. Then, she loses her job as a midwife at the local hospital, over the easily-fixed misplacement of a baby or two…
Now, Jean is sure a snooty real estate agent is blocking her efforts to find a rental in a nice part of town.
Given possession of a batch of incriminating photographs, who wouldn’t begin thinking about a little life-restorative blackmail?
Written in three acts and covering a quarter of a century, The Plastic Seed is an environmental thriller that explores the hypocrisy of some aspects of the philosophy of wellness. This novella is part satire of the human potential movement, and sincere testimony to the ability of humans to face facts when given no choice.
I really enjoyed this story, it had a few twists along with way but I found myself really wrapped up in it – it is only a novella but the author certainly packs in a lot over the pages and I thought that the plot was excellent!
I thought that Jean was an excellent character and I loved her darker side and her background, at times I was really feeling for her.
Four stars from me for this one, I really enjoyed it and thought it was really well written, with plenty of story content to keep me interested and entertained!
