I received this book for free from the Goodreads first reads program.

I was looking forward to reading this book because I love medical thrillers. The premise of this book, that the big pharmaceutical companies and doctors would try to stop a cure for cancer because it would lose them money, is completely believable. My daughter has leukemia, and the $5,000 per month that we have to pay for drugs is criminal.

So this was a fast paced story. The characters were believable and interesting. There were several romances in the book that I enjoyed watching develop. I was rooting for Otis and Eloise to get together. It did seem a little too convenient that the heroes would have such easy access to unlimited funds, but the evil of the politicians and drug companies was very believable. Unfortunately there are too many people in the world who worry more about making a profit than doing what is right.
