The story centers around Jillian Cooper, VP of Marketing for Dynalife Pharmaceuticals, who finds herself setup to take the fall for the murders of her Dynalife bosses, Jonathon Mattson, CEO, and David Paulson, COO. Suffering from a blackout and losing two days of her life, Jillian is confronted with evidence that she committed the murders, and to make it worse, she fears that she has inherited her mother's history of mental illness. Jillian is determined to find out who is setting her up to take the fall, especially as her investigation uncovers shady black market drug dealings between the Mexican Mafia and Dynalife Pharmaceuticals. Can Jillian uncover the truth and prove her innocence, or is she guilty of the murders, and descending into the murky world of mental illness?
The reader is easily drawn into this well written story with its richly descriptive plot and setting. It is filled with enough action, drama, secrets, motives, betrayals, deception, and intriguing twists and turns that definitely keeps the reader guessing until the surprising conclusion.
The author does a wonderful job of providing enough intrigue to engage the reader, and I found myself so caught up on trying to figure out how Jillian was going to prove her innocence when there was so much evidence pointing at her guilt. You can't help but wonder how much of her mother's mental illiness she may have inherited, as her actions / reactions during the investigation makes the reader definitely think twice. I really enjoyed how Jillian's investigation leads her into the dark undercover world of big Pharma dealings with the interconnection between the Mexican Mafia and Dynalife Pharmaceuticals. As Jillian puts all the pieces of the puzzle together, the reader will be stunned by the conclusion!
