To Speak the Unspoken is the final volume of the Dr. John Nicholson trilogy. In A Matter of Conscience and A Matter of Time, he struggles to find an effective drug to use against one of the greatest killers of our time—cancer. Efforts are made by unidentified sources to sabotage his work.
The main concern of some is that his work could interfere with the most important part of the pharmaceutical industry’s world. Some call it profit, others prefer good. The discovery of one effective drug can make fortunes overnight. Nicholson’s work attempts, by molecular engineering, to modify the chemical structure of some drugs. In so doing, he could inadvertently take an accepted drug out of its patency and thereby wreak financial havoc on powerful companies. Protocols are created by Nicholson that begin to rock the foundations of the pharmaceutical establishment.
The final part of the trilogy opens with a court case being brought against Nicholson for unlawful killing of a patient by the administration of an unlicensed drug to a seriously ill patient. Little do his enemies know that by their actions they are sowing the seeds of a much greater success for Nicholson’s work that culminates in a truly surprise ending.
