Beschreibung

Master storyteller Arthur Hailey's New York Times-bestselling novel takes readers behind the scenes of the billion-dollar pharmaceutical drug industry

It starts as a routine case: Mary Rowe contracts hepatitis from unclean drinking water, and the infection should work its way out of her system in a few days. But when the illness worsens and she slips into a coma, Dr. Andrew Jordan is forced to tell Rowe's husband that his wife is dying. It's 1957 and there simply isn't a drug that can save her. Pharmaceutical saleswoman Celia de Grey then offers Dr. Jordan a sample of an experimental drug that cures the dying woman overnight. This marks the beginning of an epic journey-and a great romance-for a dedicated internist and an idealistic, ambitious woman.

The miracle cure establishes de Grey as a rising star within the industry. But as the years pass, she and her husband, Dr. Jordan, begin to realize that her bosses are driven not by the desire to eradicate disease, but by greed. Millions can be made in matters of life and death-for those who don't mind getting blood on their hands.

“This one’s a winner. . . . Full of drama, romance, and treachery that also informs us about issues behind the headlines.” —San Francisco Chronicle
 
“From the man who made you afraid to fly (Airport), drive (Wheels), or stay in a hotel en route comes a new industry exposé. . . . Reeking of realism, Strong Medicine shows the good and bad sides of medicine.” —The Indianapolis News
 
“A pure Hailey thriller. The action is fast paced; the dilemmas true to life. Strong Medicine is just as labeled: an exciting stimulant.” —Tulsa World
 
“Arthur Hailey knows the human soul. . . . By the end of a Hailey novel, the reader . . . has become an expert.” —Newsday
 
“Will keep you awake . . . Full of bright and shining moments . . . A shocking reminder that we tend to classify drugs as good (doctor prescribed) or bad (junkie distributed) when the legal drugs may be just as dangerous.” —Daily News (New York)
 
“Action, poignant characterization, and thought-provoking conflict . . . A book to be read and enjoyed.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch

Arthur Hailey (1920-2004), the author of eleven novels, many of which became #1 New York Times bestsellers, was born in Luton, England. He served as a pilot and flight lieutenant in the British Royal Air Force during World War II and immigrated to Canada in 1947. While working for a transportation trade magazine, he scored his first writing success with a television drama, and began to write screenplays full-time for various networks during the golden age of live television. His novel-writing career took off in 1959 with the publication of his first novel, The Final Diagnosis, and picked up velocity with Hotel and then Airport, which spent thirty weeks in the number-one spot on the New York Times bestseller list and became a blockbuster film. Hailey's novels, many of which have been made into films, television series, and miniseries, have been translated into forty languages. They are notable for their suspenseful storylines and authentic depictions of various industries and commercial settings, which Hailey aggressively and meticulously researched.
