Christine Poulson was born and brought up in North Yorkshire, England. She is now a research fellow at the Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies at Sheffield University and chair of the William Morris Society. She has written widely on 19th-century art and literature, and her most recent work of non-fiction was a book on Arthurian legend in British art from 1840 to 1920. She lives with her family in a water mill in Derbyshire, England.

No one can benefit from a new treatment that has been discovered simply because there is a discrepancy on who actually discovered it.  The treatment is for obesity.   Finally a lawyer is brought in, but it's going to be hard to solve this since evidence is missing. Not only that but the first lawyer on the case was found dead.
The author writes a thriller that will leave you with a foreboding feeling in yourself.   The reader is not only giving you a thriller but this thriller has medical and legal parts.
 The lawyer is Daniel Marchmont.  He has a daughter that has a rare genetic disease.   A cure is urgently being sought.
 Daniel will be presented with decisions that may ruin his career forever.  He's in a catch 22, damn if  he does and damn if he doesn't. It comes to light that things are very wrong in the medical research lab.  Things are wrong.  Experiments that should be  going easily are going very wrong.   Lab results are disappearing.  Someone doesn't want the research to go well..  But who is doing this and why?   Someone knows but isn't saying, but knowledge can be and is dangerous.
The author presents a well written and fast paced read that makes the reader stop and think of how things can take a terrible turn.  One wrong move can send people into a web of deceit and danger.  Easy to become caught up in things that aren't legal.
The author appears to have done a lot of good research.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Kregel Blog Tours and the author and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book  3 STARS.
