Publisher Description

Suppose a cure for cancer was finally discovered, a cure that would render much of today’s medical and pharmaceutical industry obsolete. How far would the world’s movers and shakers go to control—or destroy—this miraculous panacea?

Controversial oncologist Dr. Anson Lunt dies in a suspicious plane crash just as one of his researchers develops what appears to be a “magic bullet” against all forms of cancer. Powerful forces are conspiring to seize control of the top-secret cure, either to reap the riches at stake or to suppress the discovery entirely. Industrial espionage, blackmail, and murder are only a few of the ruthless strategies employed in the no-holds-barred battle for the cure.

A gripping tale of cutting-edge medicine and international intrigue, The Cure exposes the dark underside of the modern medical establishment.

    " This medical thriller meets all expectations. A cure for cancer has no chance of just following the normal drug process. Of course there is embezzlement and murder. Lots of plot twists. "
