About this title


In 1994, the prospect of finding a cure for AIDS represented a dream that scientists and physicians hoped to realize by the new millennium. Despite advances in medicines and treatments, a single cure still remains elusive to this day. What goes on behind the scenes in the world of new drug development is often secretive and deceptive. This mystery reveals the motives of a pharmaceutical company that is on the cusp of launching a revolutionary treatment for AIDS. Patient access to the new drug KLX is hampered by deception, greed and murder. The societal impact of AIDS is poignantly outlined in this story about innocent humans who are affected by the actions of a few executives controlling a multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical market. From homeless people to politicians and government bureaucrats, conspiracies are created between unlikely allies. Only a young employee of Linfeld Pharmaceuticals has the courage to fight for the hope of thousands suffering from AIDS.

About the Author:

Gordon Polk has worked 25 years in the pharmaceutical industry. From within multinational corporations, he has participated in the development and launches of many new drugs. To facilitate access to new medicines, Gordon has lobbied politicians, government bureaucrats, and insurance companies. From his direct interactions with health care workers and patients, he has seen the need for new medicines across a wide range of diseases. Relying upon his personal experiences, Poison Pill is Gordon's first novel. With a commerce degree from Queen's University, he combines business with fiction to illustrate how corporations can have an impact on all members of society.
