This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Would discovering a permanent cure for AIDS justify bending the rules of ethical research? Eminent oncologist Dr. Fred Truesort thinks so--and he's just found clinical evidence that may lead to a revolutionary cure. Set in a fictional inner-city hospital and the multiethnic neighborhood around it, this novel depicts a clandestine medical-research project and its unintended consequences. Fred hires a team of scientists to help him secretly research his theory. But he also needs "human guinea pigs": patients whose AIDS has never been treated. And, just in case anything goes wrong, they must be homeless with no next of kin. Things do go wrong in ways Fred never dreamed possible. When one homeless patient's dramatic recovery attracts a drug lord interested in blackmail, dozens of lives become intertwined in a plot full of action and danger: a couple living in a historic mansion; a musician dying in a freezing warehouse; a vivacious young swimmer recuperating from cancer; a hospital aide who dreams of becoming an architect; a maintenance man who spies while he sweeps; an entrepreneurial Chinese immigrant; a brilliant young geneticist who never expected professional success to endanger her life; and a wise, ornery old ex-convict who sips his wine and watches it all. When motives are mixed and social roles mask true character, neither the elite nor the downtrodden are quite who they seem. The crooked can play straight and vice versa. Contrasting subcultures collide, moral distinctions blur, and a community changes forever. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
