Publisher's Summary

There is a dark side to every passion....  

Cases of random violence have erupted across the country - murderous acts committed by previously non-violent people. Detective Adam Boedecker, grieving brother to one of the suicide-murderers, has discovered that all the suspects had taken a new breakthrough anti-depressant, Valazine.  

Elizabeth Barnes has devoted her heart and soul to pharmaceutical research. She's at the top of her game and slated to be awarded top honors for her latest breakthrough drug. Until a detective contacts her about a recent wave of homicides.  

At first, Eli dismisses it as the wild accusations of a grieving, burnt-out cop. But after another mysterious death, and some investigating of her own, Eli realizes that this intense, driven man may be the only one who can stop the killings...and save her from the dark side of her work.

Reader

She has to be the worst reader I’ve ever heard in and audio bk. At the very least she could have kept her heavy breathing for the air between sentences. The breathy breathless reading whine intended for tension rising in volume is just so wrong, shame because I really like the author

This is not a thriller

I found this is the “medical thriller” category and it is a terrible romance novel. It’s beyond wordy, it’s intensely redundant on several levels.

Not horrible…

Personal, I prefer the Kate Burkholder series, however, this time out trying something new by a well like author, didn’t hit the mark. Admittedly, the sex scenes were done very well (!!) but the character’s dialogue through most of the book sounded like it belonged in a fraught romance novel. Just wasn’t working for me here…
Also, I wasn’t in love with the narration- I felt that her intention was good— but it all sounded a bit hokey. I’m not saying I would t try another stand alone novel by this author, but I am still waiting for the next in the Amish series .

The delivery was too breathy

The breathy delivery of the narrator was a detractor from the story, which was ok.
