THE CURE offers insight into the dark underbelly of corporate greed as companies seek to own the next blockbuster product. When brilliant and controversial oncologist Anson Lunt dies in a suspicious plane crash, it seems as if the entire pharmaceutical industry wants to buy or steal his potential cure for cancer. When others start being murdered, fingers are pointed every which way, and suspects abound. Perhaps harkening back to the days of Sam Spade, reader William Dufris's style has a pretentiousness that seems incompatible with a contemporary story. Yet, almost inexplicably, Dufris's tone works, or at least grows on the listener, possibly because Hunter's ending is so satisfying. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
