The world held its breath when a magnitude 9.0 earthquake struck just off the coast of Japan, producing towering tsunami waves killing thousands and severely damaging the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant. The resulting meltdown forced the evacuation of thousands of people and prompted re-evaluation of nuclear power programs all over the world, as fears of radiation contamination spread, notes the author in this new novel inspired by the disaster. A chance meeting in Bordeaux, France, sets off a dramatic chain of events nobody could have predicted.
"The Fisherman's Stamp" transforms news headlines into a gripping story of suspicion, greed and subterfuge. Scientists work to create a medication to protect humans against radiation exposure, but their efforts fall flat until they discover a retired nuclear power worker in France suspected of having a natural resistance to nuclear radiation.
As word of the discovery spreads, danger from corporate espionage closes in, with millions of dollars and national security issues at stake. Abductions, thefts of scientific material, a key political figure's exposure to radiation, and disputes over scientific patents scar the trail in the pursuit of a viable anti-radiation medication. Ultimately, the complex genetics involved are the greatest hurdle of all.
Author Ian Greenham's three decades in international banking disclosed the seamy side of the corporate financial world which darkens the backdrop of the novel's subplots. A native of Melbourne, he worked with a leading Australian law firm on trade practices and environmental law before serving in the country's diplomatic service, and then being recruited by a major U.S. bank, with assignments following in Sydney, Hong Kong, Singapore, London and New York, where he now lives.
