A brilliant young doctor is dead … and someone has to take the blame.

Former refugee David Tran becomes the Golden Boy of Australian medical research and invents a drug that could transform immunology. Eight volunteers are recruited for the first human trial, a crucial step on the path to global fame for David and windfall gains for his investors. But when David dies in baffling circumstances, motives are put under the microscope.

With its origins in a real-life drug trial that ended in tragedy, Eight Lives is told from the perspectives of David’s friends, family and business associates, who all played a role in his downfall.

A smart, sophisticated thriller that explores power, class and prejudice, Eight Lives will keep you engrossed until the last page.

‘A powerful and pacy thriller that had me hooked until the very end.’ Christian White

‘Clever, complex, suspenseful—Susan Hurley’s Eight Lives is the science thriller I’ve been hoping for.’ Toni Jordan

‘A cautionary tale of greed and hubris, of inherited violence and the lengths we all go to for family. So many conversations will be started by this breakneck medical thriller. A big debut from a huge literary talent’. JP Pomare

‘I really enjoyed Eight Lives! It’s very well written, with compelling characters and a totally engrossing plot.’ Thuy On
