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.
