Nanotechnology is currently used in cancer research, but what if something goes wrong?
A spunky British scientist, Dr. Catherine Thompson discovers a cure for cancer, but it needs more testing due to unexpected side effects in lab animals. She goes on a business trip to the Research Triangle in North Carolina and falls in love with Ryan Jons, garage mechanic and inventor, but he keeps his distance even though sparks fly when they are together. Back at NanoCures in London, powerful men, including her aristocratic father, try to convince her to use her technology for a money making scheme. She suspects her assistant is stealing her work and goes to see her childhood friend in Paris where she encounters a woman with violet starburst eyes. She doesn’t know who to confide in, so she begs Ryan to come, but before his plane lands, she is kidnapped.
THE KILLING CURE is a 120,000 word commercial fiction filled with love, intrigue, and betrayal.
My research for THE KILLING CURE led me to visit the nanotechnology laboratories of MIT and Vanderbilt.
Thank you for your consideration.
