When controversial Professor Kristian Storm is found hanged in his office, his assistant Marie Skov refuses to believe that he has committed suicide. Having just returned from West Africa on a research trip, the late scientist had uncovered a shocking truth about immunology programmes in the developing world.

Former police detective Søren Marhauge is determined to prove what really happened to the professor. While Marie grapples with Storm’s disputed legacy, Søren leads them both beyond legal boundaries and behind the scenes of the cut-throat pharmaceutical industry.

'Sissel-Jo Gazan plants real, vulnerable humans in the middle of a highly believable murder mystery, underpinned by some hard and worrying science, and produces a wonderfully compelling story. You will want to follow this swallow's flight to its satisfying end' Robert Goddard.

Sissel-Jo Gazan has demonstrated that her acclaimed mystery, The Dinosaur Feather was no fluke . . . The author has an uncanny knack for quickly drawing a reader into the minds of her characters . . . The domestic intrigues of Marie and her relatives, and of Soren and Anna, prove as engrossing as the criminal conspiracies at hand.
