Acceptable Risk by Robin Cook


by Robin Cook

Kimberley Stewart is inexplicably drawn to the memory of her ancestor Elizabeth who was inextricably associated with the Salem Witch Trials of the seventeenth century. Such was her involvment that she has remained a taboo subject within the family ever since. Intrigued and convinced that Elizabeth is innocent, Kim sets out to renovate the old family house and discover exactly what atrocity her ancestor was accused of.

However, Kim is not the only one making investigations, her scientist boyfriend, Edward Armstrong, discovers a bacterial mould in Elizabeth's cellar which he isolates into a remarkable anti depressant. All appears to be going fantastically well and the new "feel good" drug, Ultra, seems to be a miracle find which can only lead to great wealth and happiness. "Ultra" is allegedly free of side effects but as Edward's behaviour becomes increasingly erratic and the mutilated corpses of animals begin to show up near the laboratory Kim decides to investigate the truth. The peace of Salem is threatened by a modern day witch hunt and it becomes imperative for Kim to discover the link between the past and the present.

В Сейлеме, где когда-то безжалостно расправлялись с "ведьмами", вновь началась охота на людей…
Снова и снова совершаются преступления, напоминающие жертвоприношения.
Преступления, явно связанные с "дьявольским зельем" сейлемских ведьм, секрет которого веками считался утерянным.
Неужели кто-то вновь открыл его?
