About The Book

When acclaimed undercover journalist Casey Benedict is asked to interview a young woman with a life-limiting genetic condition, the patient’s doctor alerts her to an alarming rise in antibiotic-resistant infections, tipping her off about a potential new wonder drug. If the rumours are true, this new antibiotic could save millions of lives, but no one seems to know whether the drug even exists.
Then tragedy unexpectedly strikes and Casey begins to suspect a cover-up. But she is not prepared to let the story drop, no matter how much danger she – or those she loves most of all – are put in.
A searing, page-turning, pulse-racing thriller that sees Casey on a hunt around the globe as she pursues a major exposé into pioneering medical research and drugs that could change the world.


My Thoughts

Fiction and reality will mix in this suspenseful story; a read that will make you wonder the real power of viruses and the possible vaccines to survive.
To be a microbiologist was my dream when I was young; bacteria and viruses always interested me, so when I read the plot of this book it was impossible to not want to read it. Even if we are living in a pandemic right now (and try to be brave about the vaccines that we are using) this book shows you a fiction/non-fiction view of the power of the pharmaceuticals and their investigations.
This is a fast paced story, with a strong mind and a pursue for the truth no matter what. Casey Benedict, a journalist that will make you travel around the world for the search of the real truth.
I love stories that are fiction but make you wonder what part of them could be true, because it’s a reality that there’s a rise of antibiotic-resistant infections, and also true that pharmaceuticals are “playing” with all type of dangerous infections. So, if just this part is real, even if this is an action paced story around the world, what more could be real? What parts that the author created hit the jackpot without even knowing? Oh yes, in the pharmaceutical world I am totally in the conspiracy world, they want to make money at all costs, the secretive Elias Bailey will show us how dangerous drugs can be…
This is the third book of the series “Casey Benedict” but you can read it as standalone.
If you are looking for a non-stop action thriller to keep you awake all night, this is your book, I loved it!
Are you ready for “The Hunt and The Kill”?
