Riassunto: 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.
About the Author:
From Model T Fords and biplanes to space shots, laser surgery, and microwave pizza, Jack Hunter has been there, done that. Born in 1921 in Hamilton, Ohio, he was raised in Kenmore, NY, schooled in Ridley Park, Pa., and, after graduation from Penn State with a degree in journalism, he served as a U.S. counter-intelligence agent in World War II. He subsequently worked as a newsman in Chester, Pa. and Wilmington, Del., then as a congressional staffer in Washington, and as a corporate PR executive in Charleston, W.Va., in Bridgeport and Newtown, Conn., and again in Wilmington.
Even as a boy, Hunter wanted to be a novelist, but the exigencies of war, peace, and family intervened, and he had to wait until he was 41 to write his first, "The Blue Max." It was a hit, became a million-copy seller worldwide and a major movie, and was followed by 15 other novels, most of them derived from his experiences in war, political intrigue, and corporate life. In later years, he and his wife, Shirley, settled in St. Augustine, FL, where he continues to write and pursue his "third career" as a professional aviation artist with an international clientele.
