What if a new plant disease threatened the world's coffee crop? What if it wasn't an accident? Coffee Crash, the debut novel from author Steve Hoffenberg, is a biotech mystery thriller that redefines eco-terrorism. Microbiologist Samuel Decker travels to Brazil to investigate a new organism that rapidly destroys coffee trees, and he discovers puzzling clues surrounding the outbreak. Matthew Cochran, the CEO of a major U.S. coffee retailer, seeks to leverage industry turmoil and reap millions in profits through commodities market manipulation. Eddy Zeger, the Indonesian leader of a radical environmentalist group, plots to wreak economic havoc by disseminating the disease into coffee plantations worldwide. Trails of evidence lead in conflicting directions as Decker and others unravel the truth and struggle to save the world’s coffee plantations from annihilation.
