Check out the blurb of Malthus Conspiracy below:

Book Cover7

In 2011 world population hit 7 billion. By 2045 it is predicted to hit 9 billion. Can our planet cope? In 1798 Economist Malthus thought notpredicting population growth would outpace our ability to obtain resources, resulting in a global epidemic.

Fast forward to 2012. Dean Adams and Felix Pye, unwittingly stumble across the greatest conspiracy in history, and by doing so sign a death warrant. They are forced to run as powerful members of a 200 year old secret League attempt to silence them.

The league will stop at nothing to continue its Malthusian cause. Their purpose? To curb population growth and ensure Malthus’ predictions for economic ruin do not come true.

With the aide of detective Isabella Mercena, Dean and Felix go head to head against the evil forces as they attempt to expose the league’s sinister plans to control population. Will they survive to tell the tale and tell it before the next wave of disaster is unleashed on mankind?
