Comme évoqué sur la page d'accueil, “The Breath of Seth” est la traduction américaine de “Un monde sous influence”. Cette version a pu voir le jour grâce aux efforts et à la persévérence de John Ackerson, professeur d'Anglais maintenant à la retraite, qui comme son patronyme le laisse penser est américain et s'est attelé à cette rude tâche. Cet ouvrage est le résultat d'une longue gestation, mais à en croire les retours, l'enfant est bien né, un petit exemple de critique d'une lectrice :

“With every page turned John Boring uses his expertise to draw you into a multi-stranded web of suspense and intrigue. As much an ingenious thriller as an intelligent and moving novel that combines tenderness, excitement and technical accuracy, it leads you into a world where politics and science work together in a race to save the world. A truly compelling read.”

La quatrième de couverture dans la langue de Shakespeare :

“Jean Caspier, a World Health Organization doctor, but also a mole in the French secret services, never suspected that a simple telephone call from his superior would send him on a frantic trip around the globe.

Put in charge of investigating suspicious deaths in Cameroon, he discovers the horror of a terrifying biologic weapon, as well as the love of his life. His vertiginous inquest leads him and the world to a confrontation with the discovery that the madness of some men has no limit...

With civilization itself in the balance, shall reason or madness triumph?” (Visuel)
