This is a work of fiction based on fact: the true story behind the government lies and incompetence, gross medical malpractice, and unbridled greed by a drug company that caused our American AIDS epidemic and cost 300,000 lives in just ten years.
The question remains: After 30 years and 300 billion dollars, why don't we have a cure or a vaccine for AIDS? The witnesses in this court case provide the only answer that makes any sense: We have the wrong cause.

Wrongful Death is a well-written courtroom drama that touches upon, and leads readers to question, complex themes such as the power of large drug companies, the influence of ego and ambition on scientific research and political interference within health systems. If you enjoy controversy, there is plenty of it here. Despite the high quality of writing, the courtroom action is too one sided. Some aggressive cross-examinations would have made things more interesting and delivered a bit more balance to proceedings. Full review here.
