About this product
- DescriptionA genetically engineered cure for the common cold-a simple, inexpensively grown plant-turns out to be a cure for cancer and threatens to make most other drugs obsolete. The discovery triggers a crisis of medical and corporate greed that sweeps the country as the government and the media conspire with Big Pharma to keep the miracle drug off the market. Alex Farmer, a drug-addicted doctor with a shattered life, and Cyd Seeley, a research assistant with a deadly secret, are inadvertently thrown together to protect a medical breakthrough that could change the face of healthcare forever. Amid the suspense of harrowing kidnappings, manhunts, political and corporate intrigue, Wall Street corruption, suicides, arrests and terrifying escapes-in the Montana wilderness, in the high-tech world of Houston, Texas, in the political cesspool of Washington D.C., and on a vast Indian reservation-Alex and Cyd fight to survive a perilous journey where the fate of a healthy planet hinges on the survival of a tiny seed. A critically acclaimed work of literature reviewed as one of the best new books of the year, A Cure To Die For is a timely thriller that is part adventure, part mystery and part love story; a vel about two people who stand against a broken world.
- Author BiographyStephen G. Mitchell follows his critically acclaimed debut novel A Cure To Die For with the dystopian novel 2076: A Revolutionary Thriller, a timely and relevant book about a tomorrow ruled by the plutocrats of today; a story about two enemies who unite in a forbidden love that threatens to tear their worlds apart. A writer of fast-paced stories filled with compelling characters, Mr. Mitchell has pursued a variety of careers that afforded him the time to write. He has been a salesman and sales trainer, television producer and syndicator, builder/developer/ contractor, ski instructor, screenwriter and cowboy. He is, perhaps, the only unarmed man in Montana and lives in a 19th Century Victorian with his lifelong companion, Beverly, two dogs and three cats.
