The Author.

But Mark is a man of deep conviction and strength. Despite setbacks and the sacrifice of his career, he never gives up. “Remember,” he says, “the animals need us. No one will help them if we do not. Don’t pass by on the other side.”

Gradually as she becomes more involved, Kate falls in love with Mark. Can her love though break through his dedication to the cause and can Mark succeed with the forces closing in against him?

The Cause breaks new ground in exploring through fiction rather than documentary the issue of vivisection and helps us to understand the motivation and determination of those who want to bring it to an end and value animals for what they are – as sentient beings.

The Cause is a graphic tale of dedication with a love interest set in the undercover world of the animal rights movement. Action, suspense and conflict are combined with exploration of a contemporary issue.

Kate Wilson at twenty-eight is at a turning point in her life when she meets the dynamic activist, Mark Stanton, whose aim is to end all animal experiments in the notorious company, Draco. Though reluctant at first, Kate is persuaded by Mark to go undercover to get vital information. She soon realises that Mark has enemies both inside and outside the movement as well as the authorities on his trail, causing tension and constant danger.
