Orangeberry Promo Presents: Poison Pill by M.A. Granovsky
It's the drug of the century, a miracle weight loss compound worth billions, invented by Jon Vickers shortly before his death. So why is Jon's brother Benedict risking his inheritance, his brother's legacy, and even his own life to keep the drug from the market? And why is Olga Mueller, a jaded lawyer Benedict met by chance while traveling to Istanbul, willing to help? Can they take on a powerful venture capitalist and a ruthless top-tier law firm and win? Or even survive? In a world where money rules, does truth stand a chance?
About The Author
I’m a geneticist turned patent litigator turned fiction writer. While hobbies include travel, collecting citizenships, and desperately wanting a dog, my life-long passion is observing human behavior and trying to understand what leads to it. This interest served me well when, after 15 years of talking about it, I put my pen where my mouth was and wrote my first novel.
In my non-noveling years, I still wrote, but not stuff that most would want to read. I authored several scientific research papers and reviews, two law review articles, and countless briefs, discovery documents, and witness examination outlines. Writing fiction is both harder and far more exhilarating.
I currently live in New York City, but have lived in a plethora of other places, from the exotic (Wilmington, Delaware; Toronto, Canada), to the normal (St. Petersburg, Russia; Jerusalem, Israel), to the entertaining (Florence, Italy – in a convent). While it’s difficult to be the new kid on the block repeatedly, I wouldn’t trade my nomadic existence, in terms of geography or career, for anything. It provides a rich vein of thriller plots.
This book will keep you on the end of your seat, a page turner for sure. Is the poison pill a murder story? Will anyone here ever live a normal life, as in what is normal?
We travel to different parts of the world, and a chance meeting at the airport in NY starts this captivating story. Olga Muller is a high tech lawyer, working at a company that really does not appreciate her talents. She is headed to Turkey, and she bumps into Benedict Vicker who is employed as an antiquities expert. He is actually a man of many talents.
The author has done a wonderful job of developing these characters. We travel, with the feeling that we are actually there. There are some funny episodes, but there are more scary things going on. With millions of dollars on the line, you will see where all of this takes you.
If you enjoy mystery and suspense, which this book is full of, this is one fantastic read. The book is highly researched in both science and law. Don't miss this one!
I received this book Orangeberry Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
