Patrick Dixon has written several books on ethical issues, but this is his first novel. Air ambulance doctor David Miller is clinging onto the threads of his career, but when he starts to probe into the unscheduled stops his plane is having to make and the dubious cargo they're carrying, it seems that someone would rather his life was cut off altogether. Meanwhile, a lethal virus has been released into the milk that the nation drinks, but how can the government avoid yet another health scare? When the Prime Minister's family itself is affected, there is nothing they can do but warn the nation of the impending crisis. Moreover, the same virus is beginning to strike elsewhere around the world. As he begins to question who is threatening the nation and the world, David Miller finds himself in a web of scientific experiments and deadly situations. Do these people think they can change the course of the world with their nightmarish warfare?
