ABOUT THIS BOOK

Strong Medicine is the story of Celia Jordan – a modern-day heroine like no other – and her relationship with the people who work alongside her – and against her; of the cultured and wise Sam Hawthorne, the chief executive who never loses faith in her, but tragically loses faith in virtually everything else; of the brilliant young British researcher, Martin Peat-Smith, who races against time to give Celia the breakthrough the company desperately needs; of Vincent Lord, the disappointed scientist who is her bitter rival; of Dennis Donohue, the unscrupulous senator who vows to destroy her. And especially of the gentle and steadfast doctor who is her equal and her partner in every way
