Tor/Forge Launches THE CURE, a Riveting Thriller in the Tradition of Michael Crichton, by the New York Times Bestselling Author of WIRED.
Date:9/17/2013

(PRWEB) September 17, 2013

Tor/Forge today announced the hardcover and eBook launch of THE CURE, by New York Times bestselling author, Douglas E. Richards. THE CURE provides an eye-opening look at the science of psychopathy within an explosive, roller-coaster-ride of a novel that will keep both thriller fans, and science fiction fans, reading deep into the night. "Richards is a tremendous new talent," said Stephen Coonts, author of seventeen New York Times bestselling thrillers. "THE CURE is an extraordinarily good novel that will keep you riveted . . . and thinking."

Psychopaths seem to be at epidemic levels, and new research indicates their brains differ from those of normals, possibly accounting for their absolute selfishness, ruthlessness, and lack of conscience. And while most aren’t the Hannibal Lecter type, even the seemingly benign psychopaths among us inevitably leave a trail of shattered lives in their wakes.

“What if you could invent a simple way to diagnose this condition?” said Richards. “Would society be justified in monitoring psychopaths? Even before they’ve committed any crimes? What if you found the cure for this condition? While answers to these questions may seem straightforward, the deeper you dig, the more unexpected complexities you find.”

In THE CURE, Erin Palmer suffers through a devastating encounter with a psychopath as a child. Now a grad student and scientist, she’s devoting her life to studying these monsters. When her research catches the attention of Hugh Raborn, a brilliant neuroscientist who claims to have isolated the genes responsible for psychopathic behavior, Erin realizes it may be possible to reverse this condition, restoring souls to psychopaths. But to do so, she’ll not only have to operate outside of the law, but violate her most cherished ethical principles.

When Erin learns Raborn harbors dark secrets, all hell breaks loose. Is he working for the good of society? Or is he intent on bringing humanity to its knees?

Douglas E. Richards has been widely praised for his ability to weave action, suspense, and science into riveting novels that brilliantly straddle the thriller and science fiction genres. With THE CURE, Richards has done it again, penning a novel that, according to #1 New York Times bestselling author, Douglas Preston, "Will keep you turning the pages all night long."

THE CURE, released on September 17th, is available wherever books are sold.
