Physicist Helen Freyl owns a colony of bees with unique venom given to her as a childhood present. When her lover dies she accepts a job offer from a giant pharmaceutical company who are close to finding a cure for radiation poisoning. But when the mysteriously sudden death of a colleague is followed by another, Helen begins to doubt her employer’s motives and realises that her own life is in danger too.

Recently released from prison, David Marion doesn’t expect to find a hitman at his door. Their meeting is lethal – for the hitman! Warned that a secret organisation is after him, David disappears – presumed dead - until the moment comes for him to strike back.

As their worlds collide, David and Helen are reunited as they fight for survival against a backdrop of industrial espionage, corporate greed and human tragedy. Will they win through, or will the combined force of two multinational companies bent on securing the precious Venom prove too much. An exhilarating tour de force, Venom is a gripping novel that leaves you desperate for more.
