Already downloadable with Kindle and Apple eReaders, access to the Smashwords distribution network makes "The Cure" ( available for multiple eBook reader formats such as Blackberry, Android and Mac, and online eBook readers such as Kindle for PC and Nook for PC.

While there have been many stories written about breast cancer, Mr. Devine's novel delves into the reasons why breast cancer drug development has become the dominant force in the breast cancer research industry, creating unfortunate side effects fraught with conflicts, greed, fraud and a faulty drug approval process.
