Publisher's Summary

How much loyalty does a mother owe to her son? And how does a doctor choose between faith and science?
Christine Garrett is investigating an unusual malaria outbreak on the south coast of England. As she threads the connections between the dead, she discovers links to her son and the charismatic leader he follows. In finding the source of the spreading plague, she is forced to decide between her old faith and the reason that has brought her to a lightless place.
Frightening, gripping and with unexpected twists, The Pattern Maker is a timely story of the dangers that arise when ideals, technology and human talents are perverted by absolute belief. It explores the human cost when people are seen as means not ends, asking questions with no easy answers.

Thoroughly enjoyable forensic romp

Thoroughly enjoyable page-turner. Somewhere between Prime Suspect and The Davinci Code in its style - with some lovely scientific details for geeks like me :)
