When he does, the reaction is shockingly unexpected. The university is reluctant to support his research, and the drug company whose products he uses doesn't want to know." "As Gavin persists, this mysterious lack of interest turns to open hostility, and a secret boardroom deal sets off a chain of events leading to sabotage, madness and murder in the lab. Gavin is intent on finding out who is responsible, and convinced he could still cure cancer. If he dares to turn maverick, he may just have one last chance to prove it."--Jacket." ;
