The Latin phrase "Nullius in Verba" has been the motto of Britain’s famous Royal Society – one of the oldest learned societies in the world – since the 17th century. It means that we should not accept that something is true based solely on anyone’s word regardless of his or her authority or stature. Sutton has brought his considerable expertise in understanding what causes crimes of intellectual and property theft to the area of scientific discovery theft. He has unearthed compelling new evidence of the Royal Society’s egregious failure to faithfully follow its own oldest and most fundamental tenet resulting in the greatest scientific fraud in history. Just as new DNA analysis is changing traditional forensic science, Sutton has pioneered the use of newly available "big data" analysis of the literature to expose science fraud. His biggest catch so far, Charles Darwin – the same Charles Darwin credited with discovering the theory of natural selection, whose picture appears on the Bank of England 10 pound note, and whose 2.2 ton marble statue sits prominently in the Natural History Museum in London. In his book "Nullius in Verba: Darwin’s Greatest Secret," Sutton reveals in compelling and convincing detail a huge cache of independently verifiable evidence that, contrary to what is said in an untold number of documentaries, books and scholarly works, the theory of natural selection was not independently discovered by Charles Darwin. Avoiding any religious and philosophical entanglements, Sutton’s sharp objective eye of the criminal investigator and academic creates a vivid and authentic depiction of the times, the characters, and the cover-up that endured for over 130 years – until now. More than the clues and facts, Sutton brings to life the colorful personalities, professional rivalries, gargantuan egos, and scramble for notoriety and its riches of the people that both championed and challenged the cover-up at the time. This behind-the-scenes portrayal will be fascinating to anyone who loves a true-life detective story, where in this case, the victim was the truth. It will be very surprising if Darwin’s claim to have independently discovered the theory of natural selection will survive Sutton’s tireless investigative research and powerful storytelling.
