Elizabeth Brown, a New Yorker who has been personally touched by the tragedy of AIDS through the death of her brother, lists her venture capitol company GATO Pharmaceuticals on the New York and London Stock Exchanges. It aims to raise funds to find a vaccine to cure AIDS rather than merely to alleviate its symptoms. The human clinical trials conducted in Cape Town, South Africa, under Dr Reginald Moyo at the famous Groote Schuur Hospital, began to show promise. But even before the results are made public, the share prices of the major pharmaceutical giants have been making profits of billions of dollars selling drugs alleviating AIDS start tumbling. Suddenly Elizabeth and the scientists working with her are in danger. Assassins follow their every move from Amsterdam to New York. Hackers infiltrate the company's database. Attempts are made to manipulate share prices and to prevent the AIDS vaccine from reaching the global market and the people who need it. Elizabeth must fight back against the forces opposing her company, stretching right up to corrupt American congressmen. Through it all the invisible presence of a mysterious yet powerful Wall Street player, who believes in Elizabeth's brand of social venture capitalism, watches over her every move. Will this silent guardian save Elizabeth and her company? Will the vaccine succeed in stopping this deadly epidemic in its track?
