Believing that there is more behind the murder, he seeks to uncover the truth behind her death. He finds an international conspiracy of corrupt bureaucracy and pharmaceutical money. Tessa uncovered a corporate scandal in which a large pharmaceutical company working under the cover of AIDS tests and treatments is testing a tuberculosis drug that has severe side effects.
