Justin Quayle works in the British Foreign Office in Kenya. His wife, an aide worker, is found dead and the doctor she was with goes missing. Justin will uncover what happened to his wife who was investigating how pharmaceutical companies use poor Africans as guinea pigs before the drugs have had a chance to be properly tested. But the industry is powerful and people in high places are not willing to help with Justin’s investigation.

A well crafted, political thriller.
