Publisher's Summary

Controversial oncologist Dr. Anson Lunt dies in a suspicious plane crash just as one of his researchers develops what appears to be a "magic bullet" against all forms of cancer. Before Lunt's mangled body grows cold, powerful forces are conspiring to seize control of the top-secret cure, either to reap the riches at stake or to suppress the discovery entirely. Industrial espionage, blackmail, and murder are only a few of the ruthless strategies employed in the no-holds-barred battle for the cure.

A gripping tale of cutting-edge medicine and international intrigue, The Cure exposes the dark underside of the modern medical establishment.

Poorly read

I just could not get into this book because the reader's fake british accent was obnoxious. It is not a particularly good story (greed) and the characters are uninteresting. Not worth the buy.

Poor reading makes this mediocre story unbearable

I tried very hard to get past the mispronunciations and poorly implemented accents, but couldn't. I tried to just listen to the words. I know that a good reader can add another dimension to a well written book, and can even make a mediocre book, well, enjoyable. But I had no idea how a truly bad reader could ruin a mediocre book.
