Roberto Santiago reinvents the crime novel with a riveting plot that confronts the power of pharmaceutical companies.
Fatima Montero, owner of one of the most powerful pharmaceutical empires in the world, hires irreverent lawyer Jeremiah Abi to handle her multimillion-dollar divorce. Wounded in her pride after learning that her husband and business partner is having an affair with an underage girl, her sole wish is to destroy him, but something very crooked lurks beneath the assignment.
For his part, Abi, who has also been cheated on by his ex-wife and lives with constant threats, discovers appalling illegalities in the pharmaceutical company's modus operandi: tests on human guinea pigs, extortion, blackmail and swindling. He and his firm are on the verge of bankruptcy, but his desire for justice rises above all else: he and his team are ready to confront a multinational with long tentacles even if that means staring evil in the eye.
