Sisters in Crime member, Susan Hurley, will join the Grumpy Swimmer May Book Club to talk about her debut novel, Eight Lives.
A brilliant young doctor is dead … and someone has to take the blame.
Eight Lives is a scientific thriller: Former refugee David Tran becomes the Golden Boy of Australian medical research and invents a drug that could transform immunology. Eight volunteers are recruited for the first human trial, a crucial step on the path to global fame for David and windfall gains for his investors. But when David dies in baffling circumstances, motives are put under the microscope.
With its origins in a real-life drug trial that ended in tragedy, Eight Lives is told from the perspectives of David’s friends, family and business associates, who all played a role in his downfall.
A smart, sophisticated thriller that explores power, class and prejudice, Eight Lives will keep you engrossed until the last page.
