Gulf war syndrome: fact or fiction? Saudi Arabia, 1991. Troops are in a state of high alert. The chemical warfare detectors have sounded, and the soldiers scramble into their protective suits. In terse silence, they remind themselves of the vaccinations that will protect them. Then the all clear sounds, and the troops rejoice that they are unharmed. Or so they think. England, 2002. These same troops are getting ill. Their families are getting ill. Young ex-soldiers are dying. And the survivors are angry. Steven Dunbar, a medical investigator with a government agency, decides to probe further. But what he discovers shocks him to the core. For the deadliest threat lurks not in the Saudi oilfields, but in the plush boardrooms of Whitehall. And if something isn't done soon, then more innocent people will die.
The fourth of internationally best-selling author (and award-winning research scientist) Ken McClure’s Steve Dunbar medical espionage thrillers centers on a British conspiracy of silence regarding self-inflicted chemical warfare damage. John Keogh’s gripping baritone spirals up the tension as Dunbar begins looking into the murder of Dr. George Sebring to discover what connection may exist between his vaccine, designed to keep soldiers safe from an Iraqi gas attack during the 1991 Gulf War, and the increasing number of that conflict’s veterans (and members of their families) who are dying 12 years later of a mysterious "syndrome".
"Well wrought, plausible, and unnerving." (The Times)
