Reviewed by Rattan Whig for Readers' Favorite

Thrilling. Gripping. Exhilarating. Seeds of Freedom by David Smith is hard to put down once you start reading. The book winds through rural Wales and cosmopolitan London, through politics and love, through sinister designs and plots to create unrest to simplicity of peaceful country life, through high powerful offices to modest outposts. The book starts with an unfortunate accident, a simple twist of fate that turns a peace-loving, good citizen into a criminal in the eyes of the law. There is no way he would escape punishment if arrested and brought before a court with the prosecution, in all likelihood, seeking an award of maximum punishment. There are few people who would then see it as a pure accident or a simple turn of events. His defense will be hard pressed for a convincing argument, something plausible that will make the judge and the jury believe that it was just an accident. Surely, that would be the end of life as he has known it till now. His days, if not hours, of existence as a free man are numbered. Yet, for all this to come true, he must be arrested first.

The highest offices of law enforcement in the country are enmeshed in a power struggle of their own. A couple of murders in a rural community in a place far away really would have no takers in these circles of power. Yet, there is an inextricable link, someone there is involved, very deeply involved with the chain of events. The book is is fast paced, non-stop motion and packs a punch. There is plenty of thrills and action throughout and at one point the action seems never ending. The story takes readers through to a rising climax with every turn of the page and anticipation of what is to come next is high. One cannot help get a feeling of the events happening in the real world in front of one's eyes. An excellent read, overall.
