Hypocrites' Isle Paperback
by Ken McClure
Part of the Dr Steven Dunbar series
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.
