What happens when the food runs out? This is the basis for Famine, a scientific thriller. Americas corn crop is threatened by a dramatically destructive disease, turning healthy corn plants into withering stalks with ears like festering black popped corn.

The nation faces food shortages and rationing as corn is the key ingredient in most of our foods. Farmers, agricultural scientists, and political leaders from Iowa, Tennessee, Washington and Chicago join forces to combat the disease, citizens fears and corporate opportunism with dramatic actions. Famine is a convincing and riveting look at how such a quiet disaster could develop and how it could cripple our society.
