An exciting tale of murder and mayhem generated by the greed of the pharmaceutical industry....As the tale unfolds the reader learns a great deal about the workings of basic and applied pharmaceutical research, the patenting process, and escort services available in Miami.

— (Stephen J. Morris, Ph.D., Professor of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, University of Missouri-Kansas City)

Arthur R. Crawford

Dirk Wyle has woven often overlooked but important aspects of patent law into a due diligence investigation overlaid with murder. Time is always of the essence in such investigations and facing a deadline Ben Candidi is prodded to winkel facts from unwilling sources to provide his expertise, adding tension to the analysis. I particularly enjoyed Candidi's ability to take a snippet of information related only to patent law and base a significant portion of his investigation on it.
— (Arthur R. Crawford, Esq., Patent Attorney, Nixon & Vanderhye PC, Arlington, VA)

Arno F. Spatola

Science and exotic murders combine with America's favorite Gen-X detective to offer a perfect read for the educated mystery lover curious about the biotech industry. Highly recommended. Another movie script prospect.

Tom Gasiewicz

Great characters, good logic and memorable twists.
— (Tom Gasiewicz, Ph.D., Professor of Environmental Medicine, University of Rochester)

A fun quick read. The hero, soon-to-be-Dr. Ben Candidi, investigates a biotech startup to help his client decide whether or not to buy it. The broad strokes of the story are fairly predictable, especially after the prologue, but the charming narrative details carry it through.

This is a unique read. It starts off as a business deal and then turns serious. A real mystery. And it isn't just a lot of Agatha Christy stuff. I't about bio-technology and stock offerings. I liked the hero, Ben Candidi.

In his first sequel novel, Dirk Wyle has again done an excellent job of combining his specialized expertise in pharmacology with a well-crafted plot. Protagonist Ben Candide learns, little-by-little, that what at first appears to have been a natural death was in fact a calculated murder. The novel is suspenseful, well-paced, and entertaining, and I highly recommend it.

Dirk Wyle carefully mixes his reservoir of scientific knowledge with the intrigue and suspense of great stories. Ben Candidi has become an old friend. We look forward to joining him in future, exciting forensic adventures.
