Fascinating story based on a real threat that actually exists in hospitals all over the world. Unmasks the concealed interests behind the pharmaceutical companies and the medical business. Things are not black or white, this novel exposes the gray areas in medicine. Few of us doctors have a vocation that keeps us away from the web and illusions of modern medicine. Captivating!!! --Delia G. Toledo, M.D.

 

Two friends of Hispanic descent are involved in a plot created by the drug company for which they work in the city of Chicago. Can Valeria and Mercedes stop their boss Machiavellian plan before it affects a group of young people who inadvertently end up involved in the maelstrom of the conspiracy?

Golden Plague, the new offering by Ila Monroe, sheds a light on the frailty of our existence  by sculpting one of our biggest fears, contagion, into a visceral nightmare;  a  nightmare that originates in a place  where we seek solace and safety: a hospital bed.

At first I wasn't sure if I wanted to read this book with its sci-fi-like premise and microorganisms, until my best friend recommended it. "It's not what you're thinking, you'll see." And I'm glad I listened because I would have missed a book full of realism inflicted in a fictional plot. When I finished the book, I couldn't stop thinking about all the characters. Speaking of characters: Valeria and Mercedes are pure spitfire, no-nonsense women who are very successful at what they do. They give us a glimpse of how professional women behave in a business setting where men are the one's calling the shots. Love the way they handle all the curveballs thrown at them. Great role models! And the young characters are beautifully written... their young love is so fragile, that it almost broke my heart. And let's not talk about Sam. OMG it's has been a while since I have hated a character so much! Looking forward for more James and the rest of the characters in the future!!
This novel has it all: action, romance, scientific facts and intrigue. Loved the plot, the characters and locations.
James and Valeria rock. Excellent read!
I loved reading this book, it was entertaining and full of suspense!! Can't wait for next one!!!
It's great material for a movie
