This audio tape is one I would rate in at least the top 80% precentile for suspense; there is one point near the end where I am trying to remember something from the earlier part, and was amazed to realize that is was the same story, after all those turns! If you are intrigued by microbiology and /or cancer research, you may have to remind yourself that this is fiction from time to time !

FROM THE PUBLISHER
At thirty-one, Dr. Daniel Logan has gotten the biggest break of his career - a research fellowship at the prestigious American Cancer Foundation near Washington, D.C. The patients who come here know it is their last hope for survival. No matter how great the risk, or how slim the chance for success, they willingly take drugs that are shrouded in secrecy...even when things begin to go very, very wrong. Dan soon learns that he has no influence on the arrogant, world-famous researchers who give the orders, and no hope that anyone will listen when he stumbles upon a "magic bullet" - a possible miracle cure...for breast cancer. Only one other new recruit, Sabrina Como, a beautiful Italian doctor, sees the merit in Dan's theory. Together they begin to test the new drug on a group of patients until suddenly, inexplicably, the women start dying. The desperate hunt for answers leads Dan and Sabrina from a chemist in prewar Germany to a missing trunk shipped to America fifty years earlier. But Dan's hopes soon dim. The reason: a conspiracy so deadly and unconscionable he cannot believe it's real until his life becomes a nightmare - and time begins to run out for one very special patient: the most prominent woman in American political life.
