by Ken McClure
When three young farm workers die suddenly of a brain disease, the Medical Research Council feels compelled to investigate. Dr Ian Bannerman, consultant pathologist and expert on brain disease, is sent to make discreet enquiries. But in north-east Scotland, Bannerman finds plenty of cause for alarm - and terror.
He discovers a corpse without a brain in an Edinburgh morgue; a dead man at the foot of a Hebridean cliff; suspicious local farmers; threats emanating from the nearby nuclear power station - and more horrifying evidence of the disease. But what is the cause? A deadly virus that has crossed the species barrier - or a murderous conspiracy of men? Either way, human life is increasingly under threat. Especially Bannerman's.

McClure's work is informed by his background as an award-winning research scientist with the UK's Medical Research Council.
