There is a parallel WW II story line which impacts on contemporary characters


Faced with an epidemic of 13 million new cases of cancer, the World Health Organisation has offered a US$7.5bn reward for irrefutable proof of a scientific cure. Leading oncologist Dr Hannah Siekierkowski discovers a secret buried in a London research laboratory that will change medical science and raise new questions about the cause of the disease

It could save the lives of millions of innocent people but she is not the first to make the discovery. Now Hannah’s own life and that of British project manager Lawrence Mc Glynn could be at stake as they uncover acts of cruelty perpetrated in the name of medical science

As the story unfolds Hannah also has to face a life threatening dilemma within her own family
