Suppose a cure for cancer was finally discovered, a cure that could save the lives of millions—and render much of today’s medical and pharmaceutical industry obsolete? How far would the world’s movers and shakers go to control this miraculous panacea—or destroy it?
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. Before his mangled body is even cold, powerful forces are conspiring to seize control of the top-secret cure, either to reap the potential riches at stake—or else 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.
