Dr. Alex Winter, a brilliant biomedical engineer, teams with Dr. Xiu Ling, a beautiful Chinese scientist, to discover a revolutionary cure for cancer. But Tando Pharmaceuticals, the world’s largest and richest drug producer, also has an interest in the cure, and when they discover that the treatment is flawed as recipients begin to die after four months, causing a media frenzy and a drop in Tando’s stock, they call upon their ‘Mercenary Soldiers of Medicine’ to maintain global domination.

In The X-Cure, Dr. Alex Winter, a brilliant biomedical engineer, has teamed up with Dr. Xiu Ling, a beautiful Chinese scientist, and together they’ve discovered a revolutionary cure for cancer. Although quite a technical topic, the author did a great job of explaining it in terms regular human beings, with no medical background, can understand as well. Alex and his team have to work in secret, to prevent their cure from being discovered by Tando Pharmaceuticals, a corporate giant, and the world’s largest and richest drug producer. Tando Pharmaceuticals are ruthless, and would stop at nothing to dominate the world drug market.

When it turns out the treatment is flawed as patients start dying after four months, Tando Pharmaceuticals enlist their ‘Mercenary Soldiers of Medicine’, putting the lives of Alex and his team in severe danger.

While the idea of a pharmaceutical company employing hit men might seem farfetched, it actually works under the circumstances set out in this book, and it’s not all that unbelievable once you start diving into the story.

This is a fast-paced, suspenseful thriller with just the right balance between story and characterization.
