Dr Frank Garfield has found a cure for cancer, but cut-throat businesses are looking to profit on the research and don't care who they trample over to do so. Paediatric oncologist Dr Frank Garfield has discovered a genetic cure for cancer that can save his young patients. But his mentor, Nobel Prize laureate Dr Jackson Atlas, believes his research is like blood in the water for profit-hungry drug companies that will twist and weaponize it. UNICO Pharmaceuticals CEO Leona Lang is desperate to find a new product, and Frank's formula could be the answer. But Jackson is an obstacle. Dalton Lang, Leona's sociopathic son, has been tasked with seducing Frank into joining UNICO. His first steps are to eliminate Jackson and make it look like a burglary. With Jackson gone, will Frank be persuaded to join UNICO or let his research, which could blow apart the cancer industry, die? The lives of innocent children hang in the balance. Frank can save them . . . but at what cost?

"Global Warming is a complex thriller with Garry Willmott's trademark mix of fact, fiction and projection. From the death of one man, pilot Ericson, the story builds to a tsunami of blackmail, terrorism, compromise and revenge… and that's before the Russian mafia gets in on the act!If you've enjoyed Garry's other novels, you'll love Global Warming. Just hold on to your hats and watch out for AK47s."– Sally Odgers, author. "Garry Willmott's latest book Global Warming is a ripping yarn of espionage and high adventure that stretches from one side of the globe to another.It is a David and Goliath story in every sense and highlights the vulnerability of the world's smaller more independent countries to the impacts of environmental change.It is Mr Willmott's obsession with detail which provides so much interest and authenticity in his writings.Not unlike the Da Vinci Code, underpinning the sometimes-frenetic pace, there are twists and turns, shocks, surprises and mishaps."– Cenred Harmsworth, recording artist. "Based on a plausible premise Garry has interspersed the drama with well-researched and poignant facts making the story quite thought provoking.The story continues to build well with many twists and turns and a few surprises along the way.I found the book highly entertaining the plot easy to follow and an all-round good read. This story is a must-read for any fan of the thriller/drama genre.Although a work of fiction, this should be read by the world's major polluters (listed within the book); there is a warning here that is not entirely implausible given the current political upheavals and voter shifts seen throughout the globe."– Martin Humphries " Global Warming , a book of intrigue, thought provoking facts and ideas, with many twists and turns. For the author, Garry Willmott, this is a totally new subject matter, one which encourages much debate and thought about human tragedy.It is exciting, thought-provoking and imaginative, with a killer ending.I totally recommend."– Ian Jones

Con man Max O’Brien gets pulled into a grisly conspiracy while investigating his lover’s murder. Distraught by the murder of Tanzanian lawyer and ex-lover Valéria Michieka and her daughter Sophie, Max O’Brien travels to Tanzania to track down those responsible. What starts as a fight for justice quickly becomes entangled with the persecution of albinos in the East African state. Thought by some to have supernatural powers, many albinos find themselves targeted for their body parts, and Max has reason to think that Valéria and Sophie were killed because of her legal work defending albinos’ rights and safety. Did the lawyers’ fight against this horrendous business upset the human traffickers? Max’s search for the truth about their deaths is filled with unknowns, each more impenetrable than the last.
