'The most frightening thing is that research scientist McClure makes it utterly believable’ - The Scotsman

Dr Frank Simmons works in the University of Edinburgh’s medical school. One of his PhD students, brilliant loner Gavin, announces his intention to find a cure for cancer and actually makes a major breakthrough. Oddly, no one seems to be interested and a picture emerges of a cancer research industry caught in a desperate paradox: it can only justify its existence by not curing cancer.

Disinterest soon turns to open warfare as pressure is put on Simmons and Gavin’s work is sabotaged. A truly compelling story with superb dialogue and thought-provoking ideas.

Ken McClure is the internationally bestselling author of medical thrillers such as Wildcard, The Gulf Conspiracy, Eye of the Raven and Past Lives. His books have been translated into over 20 languages and he has earned a reputation for meticulous research and the chilling accuracy of his predictions. McClure’s work is informed by his background as an award winning research scientist with the UK’s Medical Research Council.
