Dr. Tim Sullivan is dead and the critical records for his last few weeks of genetic research are missing. But the “devil’s bargain” Dr. Sullivan made before his death is as dangerous as ever.

With the bio-genetic world desperately plotting to obtain the secrets unearthed by the research, Dr. Sullivan’s surviving family and colleagues, Marnie Sullivan, Dr. Ben McKay, and Dr. Luc Morgan, find themselves struggling to survive a treacherous world of hidden agendas, ethical breaches, and life and death decisions

When Ben is injured in a freak hospital accident, he is faced with the very real possibility that he has contracted a deadly disease. Should he tell Marnie? Will he even survive?

Carlos Rivera’s genetically-engineered daughters are home from the hospital, but are still plagued with sickness. In his anger Carlos is capable of anything—even murder—to avenge his daughters’ condition.

    Outstanding Medical Thriller

    In-depth characters, engrossing plot and glued-to-your chair suspense all combine to make Deadly Cure a book worth reading and passing on. Deadly Cure provides fascinating insight into the benefits and pitfalls of medical research. Authors Glahn and Cutrer have written an emotionally charged book that draws the reader into medical ethics issues often not addressed in works of fiction. Their skillful writing helps readers understand the world of bio-genetics research. Definitely a must-read.

    Bound for the Bestseller List!

    I loved reading 'Lethal Harvest' from last year's fiction bestseller list and was equally captivated as the story-line was continued in Cutrer and Glahn's new release, 'Deadly Cure'. Characters endeared, like Ben and Marnie, were back bringing more emotion-packed drama. And, as new characters are introduced in this enthralling episode involving the newly re-built fertility clinic, all their lives continue to be surrounded by the world of medical research and its effect, or possible effect, on each of them. These readings, by envisioning realistic situations, have been an excellent way for me to better understand the need to develop a personal ethical position on just how far I hope that medical research and advancements can take us and at what costs. 'Deadly Cure' can be easily followed, in plot, before reading 'Lethal Harvest', but go ahead and pick them both up for a great reading experience!
