Roberta, Rosie, Sandra and Linda meet at college in the 70s and remain constant friends, despite life’s up and downs. The sudden death of one of the friends leads the others to suspect that a slimming drug she had been taking was perhaps to blame.
Was this a wonder drug or a threat to life?
The friends start to uncover long-held secrets and betrayals both personal and professional, but the pharmaceutical industry is not yet finished with them. Feeding the Gods is a thriller that addresses friendships, the different roles a woman must take on through life and the power of the drug giants
This is a big chunky book but don’t be put off as it is a superb read. I felt as though I learnt quite a bit about the drugs industry and what can happen when taking these so called tablets. It was a very eye opening read that follows four very good friends. The story is broken down into parts so we see what happened to all of them when they were at college and where their life has taken them to now. We see each of their stories and how the drugs industry affected them. They are real women who I am sure other women will be able to relate to. A really brilliant and eye opening thriller that you wonder what will happen in the next chapter.
I received an ARC copy for an honest review.
