Who, or what is to blame for causing this mass suicide event, what is being called Apoptocide? Amazingly Angela Starr is accused. Can she find the link between her scientific investigations and the mass casualties on the battlefield- before the world condemns her for crimes against humanity ? Author Mark Goode takes us deep into an intriguing thought experiment that quests for answers about the real world suicide pandemic. This journey inward explores is the relationships between biology, apoptosis, chaos and neuroscience describing the first ever behavioral toxin.
