A thrilling page-turner that provides a chillingly realistic glimpse into our world's booming medicine industry
Lobbying and hidden motives in the pharmaceutical industry are high on the agenda when Helle Vincentz shines the spotlight on depression, anti-depressives, suicide and women’s sex drive – or lack of it - in her new thriller MY SISTER.
A Danish pharmaceutical company is about to launch its biggest enterprise ever - a revolutionary pill for depression – when the director discovers that one of his employees has anonymously submitted false documents with the company’s application to the Danish Medicines Agency. He asks Sofie Munk to track down the guilty person; she’s barely begun her enquiry when all her alarm bells start ringing. All indications are that the director has much more to worry about than some stray papers. It appears that one of his employees has had their very own agenda, and has systematically got rid of everything - and everyone –standing in the way of the ground-breaking pill.
MY SISTER is the second standalone volume in a series about anthropologist, Sofie Munk, who finally finds her true calling when she is hired as a private detective.
