Author – Gordon Bickerstaff.
I was born and brought up in Glasgow, Scotland. I studied biochemistry, and I’ve worked in several Scottish Universities where I did research on enzymes and taught biochemistry. After thirty years of teaching and research I retired my academic pen and took of a fiction pen.
I write medical-themed thrillers. Deadly Secrets was published in 2013, and was followed by Everything To Lose in 2014, The Black Fox in 2015, Toxic Minds in 2016, Tabula Rasa in 2017 and Tears of Fire in 2018. I live in central Scotland with my wife and we enjoy reading, writing, and walking in the hills.

Conspiracy. Serial Killers. Thriller.
The truth will out…
Gavin’s life will be turned upside down. He joins a company to work on a product that will revolutionise the food industry. His initial gut instinct is to walk away until he discovers one of the company directors is the former love of his teenage life.
The financial implications are global and incredible. Powerful individuals and countries are prepared to kill as they compete to seize control of the company. Corruption at high levels, a deadly flaw in the product, and the stakes jump higher and higher.
Against overwhelming odds, Gavin must rescue his former love from the hands of an evil cult as they prepare her for a living nightmare.
My thoughts – What a great read. Although the book revolves around science it was still easy to read and understand. I know nothing about science but the author explains everything in such a way that it just enhances the plot.
Gavin reunites with the love of his life as he takes on a new project. Someone has hit on a ‘miracle’ fish that can be used in lots of food preparation and could ease the pressure on UK fishermen. However the side effects have not been seen and as word of the fish spreads, more ruthless and organised groups want control of the discovery of it. At any cost.
Corruption, bribery, blackmail, transplants and experiments, this book has it all. Highly recommended, and I look forward to reading the other books in the series.
