Compelling (fictional) story of scientific and ethical conflict. Talented researcher and his star underling have found a new result that greatly affects how we view cancer - but the lead researcher suspects that the junior scientist may be faking the results, while the junior scientist feels like he's not getting enough credit. Fictional story, but portrays many of the real-life pressures and frustrations put on working scientists, including the need to secure future funding and academic politics. Well-realized characters and a tense plot. Highly recommended. My only quibble is that a single experiment gives a clear answer that solves the entire problem - something that has never happened in my experience.
