An exciting thriller steeped in historical background starting two hundred years ago on a US battleground where British scientist George Napier witnesses a drug-driven massacre and vows to eradicate the drug called Berserker, but his drug company is taken over by his ruthless partner and we see the development of corporate skulduggery involving the pharmaceutical giants wrestling for worldwide markets.
Sam Jardine, his direct descendant, now takes up the fight, but the drug has moved into even more ruthless hands. Without loyal friends, he has no chance of succeeding, but he also isn’t quite sure just who is to be trusted. That is the who-dunnit aspect of the story that keeps one on the edge of one’s seat.
A tense yarn that ricochets around the globe from boardroom to battlefield, there is no let-up. There were some moments of not quite convincingly being saved-by-the-bell, but it was good entertainment and certainly not an author I’d hesitate to pick up more of.
Thanks to the author and to Instafreebies for this Kindle copy.
