What I'm Reading...The Water Lily Cross

Author, Anthony Eglin, was kind enough to forward me an advance uncorrected proof of his latest Lawrence Kingston garden mystery, The Water Lily Cross, and I am enjoying it greatly I will have a complete review once I finish...which shouldn't be too long.

The Water Lilly Cross is the third in the series of English Garden Mystery's which also includes The Blue Rose (review) and The Lost Gardens (review). I have loved the first too books in the series and The Water Lily Cross is proving to be just as fun. As I have said in the past, these books combine two of my favorite things, mysteries and gardening in each book.

Here is a description of the book from Amazon.com...

Lawrence Kingston is asked to search for a botanist friend who has gone missing. With nothing but a scrap of paper with a bewildering cryptic message, he begins to investigate. He discovers that his friend was experimenting with aquatic plants and has stumbled on a horticultural breakthrough with staggering implications, one that could ultimately generate billions of dollars in revenue: a giant form of Amazonian water lily capable of desalinating water.

Convinced that influential people are involved in the disappearance, he pursues more leads, but circumstances beyond his control plunge him deeper into jeopardy and a corporate world of ruthless, greedy men who are not to be stopped. Kingston presses on, knowing that his missing friends life, and his own, both hang by a very slender thread.
