A book I've read in Dutch as a teenager and back then liked it a lot. Received an English copy from my cousin so I thought let's give it a try and I still enjoyed the read. Just an easy read. ( )

This is one of a series of books that Arthur Hailey wrote that I suppose you could call dramatic thrillers, or something like that.

Some are more at one end than the spectrum than other, and Strong Medicine you could place in the middle, as hospital staff deal with life and death decisions every day, whereas here there are no 'stuff is going to blow up and go boom
type problems to deal with. A doctor's relationship with a patient and a possibly revolutionary treatment is spotlighted.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385504098, Paperback)

Explore the secretive pharmaceutical industry with the women and men who control it in Strong Medicine, the newest blockbuster by Arthur Hailey. Celia de Gray makes inroads as the first saleswoman for Felding-Roth Pharmaceutical Company, but uncovers scandals, including inadequate testing of new prescription drugs and false advertising. She finds that her work, and her marriage to Dr. Andrew Jordan, pose difficult choices she didn't expect. The best-selling author of Hotel and Airport, Hailey here unlocks the doors of the giant drug industry for a frank revealing glimpse of drugs, discoveries, deals, and deceptions. Written after three years of research, Strong Medicine is both a love story and a glimpse of the miracles and money that can possibly be made in the world of experimental drugs.
