London- based scientist Anthony Malloy has made a discovery that will hugely benefit global health. A pharmaceutical company is keen to market his invention of the single-use syringe, but its backing comes at a terrible price. What ensues entangles Anthony in a web of intrigue and blackmail that has unforeseeable and surprising consequences for him and the women in his life: his radical sister, his musically gifted daughter and his soon-to-be-ex-wife. His dilemma-fuelled and conscience-ridden journey takes him from London to Vietnam and Thailand and then on to Chicago and Bogota. With characters that we care about, an original and daring premise, and an assured lightness of touch, this is taut, engaging fiction from the author of the critically acclaimed In Search of the Blue Tiger.
