The Weed Agency

At a meeting yesterday, Joe DiTomaso mentioned a new book: The Weed Agency written by Jim Geraghty.

 

I wonder if it's anything like Curse of the Giant Hogweed (Peter Shandy Mysteries) by Charlotte MacLeod which I found at a used bookstore and plan to donate to our weed science library in Robbins Hall.
