In the bestselling tradition of Jeffrey Archer and Dick Francis comes a hot new commercial talent. A young scientist, Cameron, has an idea which could revolutionise medicine. She believes that, once published, her findings will change the world. A maverick financier, Bryn, sees the potential, but convinces her that truth alone is never what secures change: it's money, nous and competitive savvy. He persuades her to go into business with him. Their aim: to build a stockmarket company worth a hundred million pounds -- big enough to survive assault; strong enough to market Cameron's technology to the entire world. Corinth, a corporation worth a hundred billion dollars, sees Cameron's technology as a threat and aims to wipe out the fledgling enterprise. The story becomes a race to the stockmarket -- and a battle to survive.

Harry Bingham is an ex-City trader who has worked for major British, American and Japanese firms but who now writes full-time. He lives in Oxford with his wife and their three dogs.From Booklist:
What if you discovered the cure for the common cold? Or AIDS? Or Alzheimer's? What if you discovered all three? And what if the largest pharmaceutical manufacturer in the world was doing everything in its power to keep you from making your discoveries known? Finding herself the target of mega-conglomerate Corinth Laboratories' wrath, medical wunderkind Dr. Cameron Wilde needs a white knight to help save her discoveries from destruction. Enter banking whiz-kid Bryn Hughes. His chance encounter with Cameron forms the basis of an unlikely but ultimately impassioned alliance. With his insider knowledge of high-stakes finance and her groundbreaking research, they take on the twin powers of big medicine and big business. When a mole inside their own organization puts everything and everyone in jeopardy, Cameron and Bryn work against overwhelming odds to beat Corinth at its own game. Despite its standard David-versus-Goliath plot, Bingham's take on corporate greed is imaginatively entertaining. Tightly paced action teams with congenial characters to create a thoroughly captivating thriller. Carol Haggas
