Corruption! – Elizabeth Ducie

Out of fear. Out of greed. Out of evil. Corruption springs from many roots.

Teenagers fall prey to a deadly new drug craze sweeping across Russia. Pharmaceuticals destined for Africa turn up on the backstreets of Moscow, St Petersburg and Vladivostok. Regulator Suzanne Jones and her sister, Charlie, fight to stop the pushers before more kids die.

But will their discoveries mean a friend goes to prison? And are they putting their loved ones in danger?

With old adversaries and surprising new allies, the Jones sisters face their toughest challenge to date. The heart-stopping final episode in the Suzanne Jones series of thrillers set in the sometimes murky world of international pharmaceuticals



My review

I have never been there but I love thrillers taking place in Russia. I love the language and I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because I’m a big James Bond fan and the villain is often from that part of the world? I don’t really like science but I love a thriller with a background in the pharmaceutical world. So, I will not surprise you that when I saw the blurb of this book, I was won over straight away.

Before I say something about the story, I havd to add that I adore the cover.

This is the third book in the series and I had no problem at all picking this one up. You can easily read it as a stand alone and of course your interest will be piqued to read the other books as well. I am sorry the hear it is the final part.

I already talked about James Bond (sorry he is a bit of my hobbyhorse) and  the type of story is very alike minus the technical gadgets. Here everything is solved in the good old fashioned way and it’s nice to see heroines instead of heroes.

This is a story full of action, but the author also added love and affection to give you a breather in this fast paced and fluently written book. 5 stars.

Thank you, Elizabeth Ducie and RachelsRandomResources.


About the author

When Elizabeth Ducie had been working in the international pharmaceutical industry for nearly thirty years, she decided she’d like to take a break from technical writing—text books, articles and training modules—and write about some of her travel experiences instead. She took some courses in Creative Writing and discovered to her surprise that she was happier, and more successful, writing fiction than memoirs or life-writing. In 2012, she gave up the day job, and started writing full-time. She has published three novels, three collections of short stories and a series of manuals on business skills for writers.
