Publisher's Summary

A tragic accident ends Laura Nelson's career as a surgeon. After accepting a position as Vice President for Research at a large pharmaceutical company, Laura works to finalize the imminent approval of the company's groundbreaking new drug. But Jake Harter, a malicious Food and Drug Administration employee, cannot let that happen. He is obsessed with Adawia Abdul, the beautiful Iraqi scientist who discovered the drug. As soon as the drug is approved, Adawia will collect a substantial bonus and reluctantly return home to replace her dying father, the lead scientist in Saddam Hussein's bioweapon program. As Hussein's henchmen apply brutal pressure to assure Dr. Abdul's speedy return to Iraq, Harter uses his influence to stall the drug's approval. If Laura gets in his way, he will eliminate her as he has her predecessor and his own wife.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave...

...when first we practice to deceive.” ― Walter Scott, Marmion

Audible classifies this as espionage. It is not. It is likely best classified as a medical or murder mystery. The protagonist, a female surgeon with 5 grown children, has some serious secrets. In any case it is an excellent story with outstanding narration.
