About this title

Synopsis:

Helen is the epitome of evolutionary perfection. She is stunning to look at, highly intelligent, and just about every gene in her body is selfish. She has concluded that Darwin’s theory gives humans carte blanche to behave exactly as their natures drive them. If there’s no God, there’s no recourse...provided you don’t get caught. Ben is a Doctor who believes in serving others. When he loses his wife in an HIV drug trial his world is torn apart. Several months after her death, he makes a discovery that causes him to begin an investigation into the trial. As he digs deeper, he attracts the attention of a shady security company. They send Helen to make sure a deadly secret stays safe forever. A game of cat and mouse ensues that takes Ben and Helen from Brighton to Africa, Europe and the US. As their destinies become intractably entwined, both are forced to question their understanding of morality, and they must act quickly to avoid their confrontation evolving into a potential catastrophe.

About the Author:

I'm married to Kirsty, who is also a writer. We live in Brighton, where much of the action in Deadly Medicine takes place. It's a great city, and we wouldn't live anywhere else in the UK. I've spent many years working in HIV, which is one of the reasons why I chose this therapy area to set my novel in. I have never encountered such a highly motivated group of patients and doctors, and it has been a real privilege to work with this community. I've also worked in the lab designing HIV drugs as part of my Ph.D. in organic chemistry. It was during this time that I started to really think about the origins of life. I worked every day for three years with the key chemicals that determine the code for life (Nucleic acids in DNA) and the molecules that DNA codes for (amino acids in proteins). Other than writing I have several passions in my life, including windsurfing, photography and traveling, but probably my greatest passion is for the truth.
