"Anne Clewiston Symons, a gifted young researcher, has isolated a blood serum that temporarily but completely suppresses pain - without unconsciousness or any of the other side effects of conventional anesthetics. The large pharmaceutical company that employs her and Clark Symons, her husband and co-worker, has just been granted federal permission to proceed with tests on human subjects, when horrifying evidence appears that some of the test chimpanzees have become murderously psychotic. Anne at this time is nearly immobilized at home by serious, painful injuries incurred in an automobile accident.
This engrossing novel puts the story of a disintegrating "perfect" marriage into the context of corporate power and politics, the techniques and ethics of laboratory research, and the questionable reliability of scientific observation. The Clewiston Test is at once a psychological thriller and an accurate and fascinating view into the world of scientific research."; 7" - 9" Tall
