9780955444869: The Cancer Code

THE CANCER CODE is a thriller about the first man on earth to discover a cure for cancer. A likeable, everyday guy ... who just happens to be a genius!! It’s a ‘David and Goliath’ story, except the little man is Jim MacWaide, an altruistic New York biochemist, on the run from the world's most powerful pharmaceutical company with the ‘Holy Grail’ of drugs under his arm. Coming from a renowned Napa wine-making family, Jim has spent three years obsessively experimenting on the properties of Resveratrol, an extract of the red grape. After achieving miraculous results in regenerating human tissue cells, he shares 90% of his discovery with his employers, Gluck Schmidt Little, but quickly gets cold feet. Realizing too late, he's certain that once the ruthless pharma giant gets hold of the 'Holy Grail' of cures, they will bury it in order to preserve vast profits from drug sales and the price of their stock. When Jim refuses to reveal the last, vital code, his bosses hire an ex-Guantanamo interrogator to torture the goods out of him. Saved by a last minute tip-off, Jim hits the road, pursued by the relentless bounty-hunter in a race to find a non-profit organization for his miracle cure. If ignominiously wrenched from his comfort zone, this terrifying journey liberates Jim's 'inner man' and hitherto unknown strengths to outwit his nemesis for the common good.
