Why did I pick this book: I was asked by the author to review this book. (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)
Where I stopped reading: Page 100
Why I stopped reading: The story was intriguing, but the spelling, grammatical, and punctuation errors drove me to distraction. Black makes some seriously odd language choices (the characters either “yell” or “shout” almost every line of dialogue), and I couldn’t get past them. I would definitely consider re-reading this book after a round of some serious editing.

About the book – from Goodreads: Have you ever wonder why there is still no cure for cancer, despite millions being spent every year on research? The Dalius Cure is a controversial medical thriller that questions pharmaceutical companies’ true motives.
Deep in the jungles of Brazil, a brilliant young doctor, Dennis Parker, searches for a natural cure for cancer. Dr. Parker is employed and funded by one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, the Brennan-Finewayne Drug Company. Unknown to Dr. Parker, his employer is part of a powerful secret organization whose main goal is to prevent a cure for cancer from being found in order to guarantee there will always be customers for their drugs. When the Council learns of Parker’s cure, they attempt to destroy the cure and kill everyone who knows of it. With a motley crew assembled, including Colombian drug cartel members, a prosecutor, a former MI-6 agent, a stripper, and an aspiring Rabbi, they devise the perfect plan to get the cure back at all costs and deliver it to the world.
