Meet Dagney Hamilton, a research scientist, whose team has created a promising new drug therapy to stem the mounting tide of obesity. When her employer, in a sudden and mysterious announcement, cancels the project, she suspects foul play and finds herself swept up in a tornado of powerful, unseen forces. She soon learns that a beneficial side effect of the drug threatens the profits and political interests of a multi-billion dollar industry. With billions of dollars and a Presidential re-election at stake, big business, big politics and big money will stop at nothing, including murder, to protect their interests. As a decorated police detective in a prior career, Dagney cannot be bribed, threatened or intimidated into silence or submission. Now, she must face her fears and her past as she gathers the courage to confront the people who want her dead. Dagney and her wisecracking detective buddy, Mark Stone, join forces with attorney Marcia Rothstein in a campaign against greed, corruption and illicit influence. Together they must solve the mystery of why curing obesity and saving millions of lives from conditions like heart disease, stroke and diabetes...isn't a good thing and might even get you killed. Dagney must use all of her wits and courage to stay alive, find the answers, bring those who would suppress the story to justice and ultimately find a way to unleash the life saving benefits of Epipro. Crafted in a style reminiscent of Crichton and Patterson with a measure of Tom Clancy, At just over 93,000-words, OCKHAM"S RAZOR takes the reader on a journey through both the science and politics of a new drug therapy as well as the dark under belly of Wall Street avarice.

WOW! What a great new author! Ockham's Razor is a well threaded story. I downloaded the book and could not put it down. I read it in just 4 hours. --What Other Readers Are Saying
This is very well written. The writer creates an atmosphere that pulls the reader into the arcane world of corporate intrigue. The main character is clearly being put into jeopardy, but has no idea. This should go far. --What Others Are Saying
As a Palmer and Cornwell fan, I am always on the hunt for a new author who can trigger my thriller-fiction juices in the medical/science space. The writing style is clean, explicit and the story line is captivating. --What Others Are Saying
Burton's physically describes his characters well and has skillfully begun the process of building a personality to match. His dialogue flows easily and naturally...is absolutely realistic and appropriate. --What Otherrs Are Saying - ABNA Review
