Description

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 contemporary issue. Attractive and twenty-eight, Kate Wilson is trying to rebuild her life after a broken relationship, when she attends an animal rights meeting one evening, encouraged by her friend, Steve. Here for the first time she meets and hears the dynamic activist, Mark Stanton, whose aim is to bring to an end all animal experimentation and suffering in the notorious company, Draco Life Sciences. Though sceptical and reluctant at first to be involved, Kate is impressed by Mark and persuaded by him eventually to go undercover to get vital information to achieve his objective. Soon she realises that Mark has enemies both inside and outside the movement, as well as the authorities on his trail, causing tension and constant danger. But Mark is a man of conviction and strength. Despite setbacks and a considerable cost to his own welfare, safety and career, he persists with his objective. "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 on him? "The Cause" breaks new ground in exploring the issue of vivisection through fiction rather than documentary. It 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.
