In the spring of 1993, young Dr. Cooper "Mackie" McKay stands on the cusp of a bright surgical career. He has the power of digital data and the potential for revolutionary cures at his fingertips, until a paralyzing family tragedy shatters his dreams. The only way to restart his promising career - and revive his marriage - is to step away. A temporary position at BioloGen Pharmaceuticals offers refuge. His charge is to convince other doctors that the billion dollar blockbuster drug Anginex, in the final stages of testing, is both safe and effective. He quickly learns otherwise.
He is soon forced to choose between the drug company with a promising cancer cure and an FBI informant with his own version of the truth. Now Mackie must do whatever it takes to get out of harm's way before the story breaks - because billion-dollar drugs don't go down without a fight.

Russell is onto something here!
realistic, fast-paced, medical
when Mackie talked to the reporter to leak information and then having to be "none the wiser" to everyone else about his involvement at Biologen... well played Mackie
i loved all his different voices for the characters. It's always great to hear a book read by the actual author!
You may want to think before taking that pill for your ill.... it could kill you
This was such a well thought out and delivered medical thriller! Very realistic (hopefully not the murdering of study patients) and made me really think about how much Big Pharma does play a role in modern medicine. While this fictionalization makes a great story, there are many innuendos that I have been left to ponder over.....

great story, bad narrator made it hard to listen.
