With counterfeit drugs flooding the market, you could be in danger if you take the wrong one…
Raymond McNally is enjoying his new promotion at a major pharmaceutical company. He’s been enlisted to oversee the company’s newest product Erexat – a competitor of viagra – the world’s first and most successful treatment for male impotence. Raymond’s hopes are high for a successful and profitable future both professionally and personally.
However, when reports of unexplained deaths and other serious side effects start to trickle into the firm’s medical department, alarm bells sound and Raymond quickly realises that the new drug’s future may be in doubt. Initially, the adverse effects are few and scattered globally, so the press and the national regulatory authorities haven’t been alerted… yet.
As Raymond mounts an investigation, he teams up with a twenty-something computer nerd called Harry who hacks into retail sites as a hobby. As the tension rises, so do the stakes. Can they separate the tricks from the treats before it’s too late?
I read this book and gave up but then decided to read it again. I am glad I gave it another chance as it was not a bad read. It is all about counterfeit medicines that are being sold online and what the effect has on people. It is a very real problem in today’s society and it made me feel more aware of what these people are doing to scam people. Raymond has a new job at a big pharmaceutical company, he has been given the task to oversee a new product and he cannot believe his luck. But when deaths and serious side effects come to light of people taking this product Raymond is shocked and he knows his job is at risk, can he find a way to fix the problem or will it go global? I found it an eye opening read, not the best read but it was ok.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
