Maverick investigator Søren Marhauge returns in a high-stakes case that reveals a profit-motivated conspiracy with roots that extend all the way from the upper reaches of Big Pharma to the national government.

When controversial Professor Kristian Storm is found hanged in his office, his assistant Marie Skov refuses to believe that he has committed suicide. The late scientist had uncovered a shocking truth involving immunology programs in the developing world during a recent research trip to West Africa.

With help from the unlikely source of a Nobel Prize-winning rival of Storm's, former police detective Søren Marhauge takes the case, determined to prove what really happened to the professor.

Interwoven with the fast-moving investigation are moving portraits of Skov's troubled family and Marhauge's complicated relationship with his girlfriend, another biologist. Marhauge once again battles his own demons as he pursues a cabal determined to protect its secrets at any cost.

Editorial Reviews

"Gazan's brainy thriller . . . orchestrates the suspenseful action and overlapping lives of her complex characters with deceptive ease . . . [A] moving exploration of such broader themes as parenthood, love, and the potentially poisonous results of living with lies."
-Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
