Once, Africa belonged to the families that resided in Her vast lands. She belonged to the people who grew in the shadow of Kilimanjaro to the fertile plains of the Serengeti. By the late 20th century, Africa's minerals, crops, and oil was being ripped from the soil and sold across the world leeching European industrialists. The tribal culture was no longer a fit for the urban world as a man could no longer measure his wealth by the number of cows he owned but instead, he began to measure his wealth by the number of children he sired.

With promiscuity in the emerging cities and industrial human encroachment into the bush, so came the dreaded HIV virus.

A company in South Africa develops a vaccine, but when a plot is hatched by a Group of Six Old World European Families to change the vaccine and cripple the continent, Africa is on the brink of another catastrophe.

"The Cure" is a novel of biological espionage. A sinister group of mercenaries attempts to alter a vaccine that will result in the crippling of the African people. Can the Biotechnologist that helped developed the vaccine expose their plot and save the people?
