Overview

What would happen if there was a biological switch in the brain that could turn suicidal behavior on and off?  It might be more possible than you think.

THE SUICIDE SWITCH is an intriguing and genre-bending read with a tantalizing slow-burn reminiscent of Scandinavian Noir. It is as packed with suspense and action as it is with complex characters and thematic depth. THE SUICIDE SWITCH will appeal to readers across genres and generations.


Description

What would happen if there was a biological switch in the brain that could turn suicidal behavior on and off? It might be more possible than you think. When psychiatrist Jules Solaris accuses his mentor of cooking the data in their suicide research, he opens the floodgates of an international conspiracy that takes him from the halls of Ivy League medicine to five countries in pursuit of the truth. With his mentor mysteriously exonerated, Jules is sent to work on a clinical trial in Thailand where he quickly finds that things are not what they seem. Patients are dying from a drug that is supposed to help them and it's connected to the research back home. In Bangkok, he meets and falls in love with Astrid Kallström, an investigative reporter from Stockholm. But explosive revelations from Jules' earlier years in Thailand working for a NGO challenge their bond. A dark web of espionage unfolds as Jules and Astrid learn the reason global adversaries will stop at nothing to acquire the secrets of the 'suicide switch.' Through it all, they risk everything as they peel back layers of deceit and betrayal to expose the pernicious forces operating in the shadows.
