Suppose for a moment that a simple cure for cancer was discovered: one pill taken over a few months that could destroy the plague currently killing 6.9 million people around the world annually and creating trillions of dollars in medical expenses. Aside from the incalculable benefit to people suffering from the dreaded disease, what would be the economic impact of such a discovery? What would happen to public and private companies who have millions of dollars invested in cancer drug development, hospitals, medical equipment sales, and manufacturing? Would everyone embrace a cure with open arms? Or would there be rich and powerful people who would see it as destructive to their personal interests and try to keep it hidden from the public at all costs? Jefferson Stewart III, a former Washington D.C. homicide detective and now fledgling private investigator, stumbles into the cancer cure fray and teams up with an unlikely partner, Tyrone Adams, a small-time street drug dealer, to help him investigate the suspicious death of a research scientist. In the early stages of the investigation, Stewart discovers that the dead scientist and a now missing research partner had truly found a cure for cancer. As the story rapidly unfolds, Stewart realizes there are powerful and sinister forces that will do anything to keep the cure from the market. When an attempt on his life fails and people around him start dying, the overwhelmed private detective calls friends from his military past to help unravel the mystery. The story is fast paced with non-stop action and a surprise ending.
