The Side Effect
by John DeBoer
In the 1930s, a German anthropologist researching a primitive people makes an amazing discovery. Eighty years later this leads to the development of a miracle drug that could be one of the biggest breakthroughs in the history of man’s fight against disease. An American physician suspects the drug might have a serious side effect with dire consequences for ethnic Jews. He begins an investigation not knowing that the scientist who created the formula is someone who’ll stop at nothing to hide the truth. The story ranges from the jungles of New Guinea to the laboratories of Nazi Germany and the boardrooms of the modern pharmaceutical industry. Profit, prestige, and an undercurrent of racial intolerance provide the motivations for keeping a deadly secret from the world. Physician Scott Cutler races against time and powerful forces to expose the attempt at full-blown genocide.
