-Will the long reach of Iraqi bioterrorism derail Laura's new career? Her life?-
A tragic accident ends Laura Nelson's career as a surgeon. After accepting a position as Vice President of Research in a large pharmaceutical company, Laura works to finalize the imminent approval of the company's groundbreaking new drug. Jake Harter, a malicious Food and Drug Administration employee, cannot let that happen. He is obsessed with Adawia Abdul, the beautiful Iraqi scientist who discovered the drug. As soon as the drug is approved, Adawia will collect a substantial bonus and reluctantly return to replace her dying father, the lead scientist in Saddam Hussein's bioweapons program. As Hussein's henchmen apply brutal pressure to assure Dr. Abdul's speedy return to Iraq, Harter uses his influence to stall the drug's approval. If Laura gets in his way, he will eliminate her as he has her predecessor, and his own wife.
AFTER THE FALL has already received advance critical praise...
"Gussin deftly resolves the various plotlines at the climax. Along the way, she vividly depicts her characters' interior lives, especially Jake's slide into monomania as he collides with the determined, clear-headed Laura."
-Publishers Weekly ***Starred Review***
"Gussin completes her Laura Nelson series with an action-packed medical thriller... Gussin uses her experience as a surgeon and medical researcher to create a complex, realistic story that will appeal to readers with a taste for thrillers centering on science and politics."
"This book is the fourth and, sadly, the end of the Laura Nelson series that has been so incredible to read...This fascinating series has the reader chomping at the bit for yet another piece of the puzzle every single time one of the books comes to an end. The writing, the characters, the plot-everything is so well done. Patricia Gussin will continue to gift fans with another amazing tale very soon. But Laura Nelson and her relentless determination and heroine status will be missed."
AFTER THE FALL will be available through public libraries and booksellers everywhere on January 6, 2015. This thriller is distributed by Midpoint Trade Books, Ingram, Baker & Taylor, Bookazine, OverDrive, and all other fine literary distributors.
