Hypocrites' Isle, Paperback


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.
