BackgroundEdit

CAN YOU SOLVE THIS EXTRAORDINARY MEDICAL MYSTERY?

A fully trained nurse, your life has been touched with tragedy. Your brother Jimmy, a bright young reporter, was hot on the trail of an important story until he suddenly disappeared. He was discovered two days later in a deep trance, unharmed but unable to speak or move. All the medical experts are baffled, but YOU refuse to give up hope. To be near him, you take a job at the exclusive Burslow Clinic, where Jimmy is being cared for, little knowing that this move will plunge you into a desperately dangerous situation! Someone at the clinic knows more abou the efents leading up to Jimmy's 'accident' than has so far been revealed!

Could it be the wealthy owner of the clinic, Alan Willoughby? Could it be the ambitious and cynical young doctor, Simon Quigley? Or could it be someone infinitely more dangerous?

The answers are hidden somewhere in this whirling adventure of mystery and romance. All YOU have to do is make the choices, decide who to trust and which clues to follow. And if you're lucky - or very clever - you might just win through!

Interestingly the cover drops the Adventure Gamebooks banner of the previous five books an entire year before the Fighting Fantasy range does the same thing.
