Christofferson's gripping novels of medical suspense have drawn favourable comparisons to the work of Michael Crichton and Robin Cook. Now she returns with a page-turning thriller that explores the cutting edge of medicine - and murder. It is a new crime for a new century. Biopiracy: the theft of the healing secrets of isolated, indigenous peoples. Rapacious pharmaceutical companies swoop in on remote Third World tribes, steal their folk medicine, native cures and even human blood, then reap tremendous profits from the patents. Dr Jake Scully doesn't want to think that his employer, Genex, is exploiting anyone, let alone killing natives for the unique properties of their DNA, but when he tries to blow the whistle on the company's criminal activities, he places his own life - and his family - in danger.
