Rogue Seed is the second novel in a trilogy by British crime author Pat McDonald. The first in the series was Getting Even: Revenge is best served cold. This book explores the potential in all of us to “go rogue.” But when a cop goes bad, going rogue could have far-reaching ramifications. When the body of a young school girl is found by a beat officer in the farming community of Barston, authorities wonder if it could be missing student Simone Squires, who failed to arrive home from school. Ever since DS Aidey Carter beat information out of Tommy Brentwood about a paedophile gang, Carter has been having nightmares, in which his violence is aimed at his girlfriend, Abby. Many other strange things are happening in town. Rival gangs are vying for the drug trade, a drive-by shooter shoots two young girls, an apparent suicide has everyone wondering if it really was suicide, and Officer Jacqui Foster has become the object of a stalker. Will stability be restored by Acting Inspector Luc Wariner, who is surrounded by rogue officers, and what will he do about Aidey Carter and Jacqui Foster? The third novel in the trilogy is titled Boxed Off.
