It begins with what promises to be a routine visit to a London hospital. Casey Benedict, acclaimed undercover journalist, has been reluctantly reassigned at her newspaper while she recovers from her last major investigation, a story that sent her into extremely dangerous territory. Asked to interview a young woman with a life-limiting genetic condition, the patient s doctor alerts Casey to the alarming rise in antibiotic resistant infections, tipping her off about a potential new wonder drug.
If the rumours are true, this new antibiotic could be transformative, saving millions of lives, but no one seems to know if the drug even exists. When tragedy unexpectedly strikes, Casey begins to suspect a cover-up and is not prepared to let the story drop, no matter how much danger she or those she loves most are put in. A searing, page-turning, pulse-racing thriller that sees Casey pursue government officials, missing doctors and researchers across the world while uncovering dark and terrible truths about the behaviour of major drug companies.
