Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When his brother dies from taking a bad drug, Gordan Buchanan goes up against the powerful drug company that produced it--and uncovers secrets they would kill to keep hidden. Original.

Review:

"When Gordon Buchanan's brother, Billy, dies from an injury in a logging accident because his blood failed to coagulate properly, Gordon seeks an outside cause for Billy's blood disorder, given no family history of hemophilia. Gordon learns that his brother was taking Triaxcion, a new drug manufactured by Veritas Pharmaceuticals, whose ruthless CEO will stop at nothing to maintain his company's profits. As Gordon begins to dig into the inner workings of the drug company, he's joined by Jennifer Pearce, a recent Veritas hire who has her own reasons for investigating her employer. Together they uncover a twisted path of corporate conspiracy, greed and murder that reaches into the very heart of American fears. Buick (Bloodline) offers two appealing protagonists plus plenty of fast-paced action and narrow escapes, with a minimum of tech-speak. While several convenient coincidences and overly helpful strangers speed along Gordon and Jennifer's quest, the final product is a quick, enjoyable biotech thriller." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
