Poison Pill was a delightful surprise. I picked up the ebook in the middle of an extremely busy period for me personally but somehow found myself not able to put it down. I breezed through this suspenseful page turner in three days.
The premise, the characters, the dialogue and suspense are all well drawn as the layers of the well-crafted plot draws you in to the point of no return. With the introduction of Olga Mueller, a complex heroine who finds in Benedict a case which finally provides the challenge she seeks but also the fulfillment of trying to do something worthwhile. As in life, things are never so simple. As the caper spirals out of control, you as the reader are thrown into the world of international espionage, legal maneuvering as well as the complex world of drug development.
M.A. Granovsky pulls all of these worlds together through a web of characters whom we are vested in. The pacing and ability to simplify this complex world are just some of the strengths of the novel. The hidden surprise is the development of Olga from a conflicted unhappy struggling professional to a bonafide action heroine.
Here's hoping we have not seen the last of Olga Mueller. Terrific novel and highly recommended. Pick it up today.
