Azor Pharmaceuticals, run by Kate Milholland's boyfriend and client, Stephen Azorini, is going broke with its search for the miracle drug ZK-501, and a deal with the Tokyo-based Takisawa Corporation is its only hope to stay in business. Then Danny Wohl, Azorini's best friend and company lawyer, is murdered and Kate, as Wohl's reluctant replacement, finds herself embroiled in the politics of drug research and Japanese business culture as she helps the police search for Wohl's killer. While the entries in the Milholland series are always solid, this latest is exceptional: Hartzmark paints a fascinating picture of the world of drug research with characters who are believable, varied and likable (even the villains are the kind you love to hate). The intensity of the complex plot never wavers, and the ending explains just enough to satisfy without being too pat. ( )

A DIFFERENT KIND OF DRUG WAR--BUT JUST AS DEADLY

For Chicago attorney Kate Millholland, navigating the male-dominated legal profession was a piece of cake. Tough minded and amazingly poised, Kate had seen it all. Or so she thought.

With its blood-splattered walls and overturned furniture, the scene looked like a slaughterhouse. Kate wondered: Who would savagely murder Danny Wohl in his own apartment?

Head of the legal department at Azor Pharmaceuticals, Danny was in the midst of pivotal negotiations with Tokyo investors. Now Kate dives into the billion-dollar deal mid stream. And she finds the water filled with career sharks, secret affairs, lethal chemicals, and one cold-blooded killer.
