When Revell Pharmaceuticals, the multi-billion dollar giant owned by the Revells, approaches Taylor Knox and his company with the possibility of a merger, the future has never looked better.
Not only will the merger benefit Taylor and his company—the promise of a personal share of the proceeds makes the move even more worthwhile. But in order to obtain this personal share, Taylor must find the missing pharmaceutical heiress, Kirra Revell—once the love of his life—who seems to have disappeared without a trace.
According to her sister, Kirra has been kidnapped. But as Taylor travels the globe in pursuit of the missing woman, he realizes that Kirra simply doesn’t want to be found.
As the search continues, Taylor’s life is threatened at every turn. Who is behind these deadly attacks? When Taylor finally locates Kirra and discovers the secret of her research with indigenous plants, he realizes what a threat she is to her family’s pharmaceutical empire. And now, he too is a threat. How far are these corporate killers willing to go to protect their empire?

'Elixer' is one of the best mystery novels I have read in a long time. The action keeps a steady pace, but does not sacrifice some great character development. The hero is very believable, and the settings are exciting. One criticism is that the author is a bit simplistic in his perspective of the pharmaceutical industry, which I have worked in. However, this is more than compensated for by an excellent characterization of the fascinating Basque country of France and Spain. Overall, this is a superb read.
This book was excellent reading but of course Davis Bunn does not write anything that is not worth reading. I highly recommended this book, for you will get hooked on all of Davis Bunn's books for all of them are awesome.
