Harry Steins spellbinding new thriller is set on the dark edge of American medicine, where human fife takes a backseat to greed, ambition, and the bottom line. At 31, Dr. Daniel Logan has gotten the biggest break of his career--a research fellowship at the American Cancer Institute near Washington, D.C. The patients who come here know it is their last hope for survival, and they willingly take drugs that are shrouded in secrecy...even when things begin to go very, very wrong. Soon Dr. Logan learns that he has no influence on the arrogant, world-famous researchers who give the orders, and no hope that anyone will listen when he stumbles upon the magic bullet, a possible miracle cure--for breast cancer. The reason: a conspiracy so deadly and unconscionable that he cannot believe its real until his life becomes a nightmare-and time begins to run out for one very special patient: the most prominent woman in American politics. Featuring passionate young doctors desperate for the glory of a cancer cure, deadly sabotage, betrayal, and a lethal medical conspiracy, Harry Steins what-if premise is hair-raising...shocking...the stuff of an instant bestseller. The fear is real. The medical facts are authentic...and the cure? Youll be held spellbound finding out.From the Hardcover edition.
