Item description for Drugs and Desire by Malcolm E. Brown...
Ambition drives two men, one good and one evil. They collide over the love of one woman. The hero is a decent ordinary bloke. He is a pharmacist beset by problems, an underdog with guts. The villain is a golden-spoon-in-the-mouth rogue. He is a sociologist with spivvy charm. The underdog triumphs, eventually, by getting the rogue's girl -- an ancient and satisfying theme. In this modern morality tale the hero and villain are complex. Each contains a little of the other. Passions simmer and explode. The body count is six but of those only three are human.
This tale takes us into the fascinating but little known world behind the scenes in British pharmacies and out onto a glittering global stage. That includes Delhi, Florence, London, Paris and Telegraph Cove.
Agatha Christie, Tony Parsons and this author Malcolm E Brown all feature drugs. However, Malcolm E Brown is a pharmacist so he knows more about drugs.
Many novels feature doctors and nurses but this is probably the first to feature pharmacists as heroes. The author is also a sociologist. That rare combination means that this novel sizzles.
