About DRUG MONEY
DRUG MONEY is a mystery wrapped in an inside look at life in the pharmaceutical industry. But I like to think that life working at a lower level position in a large corporation is similar regardless of the industry, and that it is a part of the American experience that is relatively unknown to those who haven’t been there. The challenge, of course, was to keep it interesting. If your great-grandfather was one of the founders of the company, but you didn’t know it until your sister stumbled upon a mystery, that should about do it.
Here is the description as it appears on the back cover:
In 1934 Henry Dresher had an old money family background, a prestigious law degree, a social-climbing wife, two young daughters and an empty bank account. His key assets were his wits and his contacts which, just before his untimely death, he parlayed into a new fortune that his current day descendents do not know exists.
Joanne works in a powerless position at multinational Nightingale Pharmaceuticals unaware that her great-grandfather was an original owner of the company. At first she assumes that her sister Gerry is getting a little crazy when Gerry discovers what she thinks is a connection between the family and the company. As Joanne’s work life in drug development steadily deteriorates, Gerry accumulates new clues and begins to convince her. They are both drawn deeper into the treasure hunt until their family lives, work problems and history all collide.
