Doctor Margherita Dumas is a leading light in the study of infertility. After years of research, she offers hope to young ladies unable to conceive naturally, by way of an experimental treatment programme. Six women from different parts of the world are carefully chosen, and invited to take part in these trails. Soon after, they arrive at the Clinique Sobel in Brussels and check in. Once there, the women find there are certain conditions which must be adhered to, and must not be broken under any circumstances. Each woman, desperate to have a child agrees, and signs up to the programme. The following year, all the ladies give birth to fine, healthy baby boys - or are they? Almost thirty years later, a string of seemingly 'tragic' accidents occur which, although not known at the time, are connected to the boys. Soon, it is the young men who meet their demise. Coincidence? The clues are few and far between, but eventually, the trail will lead to Brussels and the Clinique Sobel. It takes the skills of a young Scottish policeman, Detective Inspector Harry Houston and his team, to try and make sense of the facts, and establish a link between the slayings. Finally, to secure justice for the heartbroken families, they must unravel an unscrupulous web of deceit, exploitation and shameful secrets. Only then will they find the answer to The Nemesis Cell.
