About the Author

From Model T Fords and biplanes to space shots, laser surgery, and microwave pizza, Jack Hunter has been there, done that. Born in 1921 in Hamilton, Ohio, he was raised in Kenmore, NY, schooled in Ridley Park, Pa., and, after graduation from Penn State with a degree in journalism, he served as a U.S. counter-intelligence agent in World War II. He subsequently worked as a newsman in Chester, Pa. and Wilmington, Del., then as a congressional staffer in Washington, and as a corporate PR executive in Charleston, W.Va., in Bridgeport and Newtown, Conn., and again in Wilmington.

Even as a boy, Hunter wanted to be a novelist, but the exigencies of war, peace, and family intervened, and he had to wait until he was 41 to write his first, "The Blue Max." It was a hit, became a million-copy seller worldwide and a major movie, and was followed by 15 other novels, most of them derived from his experiences in war, political intrigue, and corporate life. In later years, he and his wife, Shirley, settled in St. Augustine, FL, where he continues to write and pursue his "third career" as a professional aviation artist with an international clientele.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Jonni Anderson on July 1, 2003
Format: Hardcover
Jack D. Hunter has written several best-sellers, all of which have recently been reissued by Replica Books. His last offering was "Slingshot" originally published in 1995. It's been a long dry spell, but Hunter has finally done it again. And "The Cure" is his best yet.
What if someone discovered a cure for cancer which is truly miraculous -- one that could also prevent cancer? The formula would be worth millions -- but where there's big money, there's somebody trying to steal it. "The Cure" is the tale of a massively Machiavellian sting centering around the miraculous cure and its ownership.
The scientist who discovered The Cure dies mysteriously in an airplane crash. Suddenly dead bodies are turning up all over the sleepy suburb of Zieglersville, and one man always seems to be somehow involved. But nobody can prove it, and everybody has a different opinion of him. Some say he's a rat's rat. Others insist he's the world's sweetest teddy bear. Is he guilty or victim?
Hunter is noted for his meticulous research, and this book is no exception. He maneuvers around medical terminology with ease, devising stings and counter-stings, deals and counter-deals, all within an entirely believable high-tech, big-bucks pharmaceutical world. But he's never without his sense of humor and quirky ability to twist the English language to his own ends (a "sklurt" of oil, for instance).
In short, "The Cure" is a must-read for Hunter fans, espionage fans and anybody looking for a believable and entirely absorbing tale of larceny, lechery, and licentiousness. Highly recommended.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on July 22, 2003
Format: Hardcover
Research scientist Dr. Anson Lunt dies in a plane crash just on the verge of a victory that would have made him a household name along with historical persona like Fleming and Salk. His team has discovered the medical equivalent to the philosopher's stone, an apparent cure for cancer that seemingly could also inoculate people preventing the disease from even occurring.
THE CURE for cancer is easily worth millions, perhaps billions. The bidding begins, but not always with cash. The drug companies want the patent. The research scientists want the fame and money. Zieglersville is a small town reeling with an overload of corpses as murder has become a major by-product of the cure. Then there is George Morton, employee and friend of Lunt who is at the crosshairs of the power struggle.
Author of the BLUE MAX and other powerful thrillers, Jack D. Hunter has written perhaps his best book to date with the action-packed THE CURE. The story line focuses on the avarice of humanity to control the elixir and the fame and money associated with it with altruism not of any concern. The cast is a powerful group and the audience will have a difficult time deciding whether George is a brilliant greedy thug or a naive humanitarian until the end. Mr. Hunter portrays a cynical backbiting world where deceit, double cross, and lies rule over kindness and the overall good. In other words the perfect cure for the summer time blues.
