Poison Pill by Glenn Kaplan
Emma Conway works for a large pharmaceutical company where she is the driving force behind a very successful painkiller. Her life is going very well. She has a great husband, lots of money, a wonderful son, and a job she loves. But when people start dying from her painkillers her life starts to fall apart. All of a sudden she is desperately trying to save the company from her ex-husband, Josh, an investment banker attempting a hostile takeover. What she doesn’t know is that it’s not Josh who wants the company. He is being blackmailed by a powerful Russian billionaire who will do whatever it takes to get what he wants. Josh is his puppet and has no choice but to do exactly as he says.
In the background, Emma’s son, Peter, has secrets nobody else knows about except his newly found ‘friend’ Tanya who just happens to be the Russian billionaire’s daughter. Tanya hates her father and is plotting revenge for something horrible he did to her. When they discover their identities and figure out how they are connected, Tanya and Peter start working together to prove her father’s guilt and his father’s innocence. Unfortunately, none of them can see the danger they are all facing until it’s too late.
I love finding new authors to read and I’m looking forward to going back and reading Kaplan’s previous novels.
