Description of this Book

A brilliant young doctor is dead, and everyone thinks they know why. But who should you believe? Against the odds, Vietnamese refugee David Tran has become the Golden Boy of Australian medical research after inventing a potential blockbuster drug. Eight men have volunteered for a trial that will set the drug on a path to global success and generate fortunes for investors. But then David dies in mysterious circumstances and somebody will have to take the blame. Inspired by a real London drug trial that ended in tragedy, this compelling drama plays out from the perspectives of David's friends, family and business associates, who all had a role in his downfall. Building to a feverish climax, EIGHT LIVES will keep you guessing until the very end.
