About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
Lethal Souvenir is the true and tragic story of Charlene, a beautiful young woman. Born and raised in the United Kingdom, Charlene's tragic death is the result of simply having something to eat as a child that would ultimately claim her life. Lethal Souvenir recounts the shock, disbelief and devastation inflicted on Charlene and her family as they dealt with her fatal diagnosis of Variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (vCJD), the human form of Mad Cow Disease. An insidious disease caused by a rogue protein that slowly destroyed her brain and her entire existence.
Written by her father, Patrick Singh, Lethal Souvenir takes you on a journey through Charlene's brief but poignant 26 years of life, through her long and brave battle with the disease. It exemplifies the unconditional love and bond between a father and a daughter torn apart by the deceit of the British Government and man's ultimate greed for money.
Lethal Souvenir will make you laugh, it will make you cry, but most of all it will break your heart.
Deftly constructed at 152 pages, Lethal Souvenir is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Biography & Autobiography - Literary category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Lethal Souvenir meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $11.95.

About the Author
From Patrick Singh, Author & Heartbroken Father:
“Just as I chose to expose and share Charlene’s fatal diagnosis with the world, I felt it was time to share my experience, my journey, my agony. I want the world to know what it was like for me to slowly watch my daughter die, to struggle with the fact that her death was preventable and being unable to do anything about it. Reliving those final months of Charlene’s life has been traumatic but strangely therapeutic. Every parent should read this book.”
