A political thriller on a major
public health issue

They are everywhere, but it’s a well-kept secret. They are in your food, your furniture, your cosmetics, your children’s toys. You have been poisoned, but you don’t know it yet.
Marie and Nabil were happy, before finding out that their five-year-old son has autism and the local factory may have something to do with it. Philippe was an eminent scientist entrusted by the European Commission with a mission to identify potentially harmful chemicals. Franck was a journalist at Le Monde newspaper, determined to tell the truth.
Now they are all victims of the powerful chemical industry lobby. Their mistake: asking questions about the invisible threat of endocrine disruptors.
Persecution, legal pressure, violence… This is the start of a ruthless war pitting public health concerns against private interests, with scientists, journalists, and industrial lobbies as the protagonists.

'In this addictive and troubling thriller, jutice and citizens welfare are hardly compatible.'
