But you want to know, “What readers are saying!” And, here’s your answer:
“Silky smooth read. Thrilling right to the end. FORCES reader to think about power of pharmaceutical companies manipulate markets for financial gain. Conversations so natural, you often feel as if you are reading your own thoughts.” ~AMAZON Customer
“Wow! It's very rare that I encounter a book that is so engrossing that I can't put it down.........this is one of those books! Read it cover-to-cover in 4 days. I can only hope this becomes a series or perhaps a spin-off featuring Dorothy and Beth (hint hint).” ~ Tonia Ansetta

About the Book: author Bill Powers’ award winning title, “The Pharm House” shares Dr. Nicholas Harding’s story involving the pharmaceutical industry with malpractice of epic proportions. This is a modern mystery and whodunit tightly corked in the prescription bottle of greed, murder and corruption and drug peddling. The protagonist, Nicholas Harding, is struggling to raise a young daughter as a single parent and stumbles across a global plot to take over the pharmaceutical company where he works. Mysterious deaths occur, including Nick’s mentor. Nick’s career, family and life are threatened. Nick is kind of like Alan Gregory in the Stephen White stories, just a guy trying to get through life and take of his family, but things (bad people) keep getting in the way.
