I had one book in my mailbox this week, an ARC of Venom by Joan Brady. I received it from Simon and Schuster, through Book Chick City's Thriller and Suspense Challenge. Thanks to both of you! I think this is the first international mail I've ever received, so I was excited to see "Royal Mail" on the package. I know--I'm a geek! :-)
Synopsis from the book cover:
Recently released from prison, David Marion didn't expect to find a hitman at his door. Warned that a powerful secret organisation is after him, David goes underground and off the radar--waiting for the perfect moment to wreak revenge.
Physicist Helen Freyl has just accepted a job offer from a giant pharmaceutical company who are close to finding a cure for radiation poisoning. But when the mysteriously sudden death of a colleague is followed by another, Helen begins to doubt her employers' motives and realises that her own life is in danger, too.
Venom brings David and Helen together as they fight for their lives against a backdrop of industrial espionage, corporate greed and human tragedy in this exhilarating and fast-paced follow-up to Joan Brady's bestselling Bleedout.
