The lawyer media commercials remind Dr. Rebecca Jackson that her firm Jackson Pharmaceutical is in deep trouble after the FDA pulled off the market their drug Camplex. She knows how much the major repercussions will be because the company hid some negative data. Thus the pharmaceutical research chemist is in Nairobi emphasizing the firm’s support to combat AIDs when Dr. Jacob Opondo kidnaps her so she can see firsthand what her drugs are doing to Africans before freeing her.

Bradshaw Pharmaceutical CEO Greg Thatcher explains to his top researcher Noah Linebrink that he read Rebecca’s autobiography Pusher and looked up her work on creating artificial human blood motivated by a car accident two decades ago. Greg believes Noah and Rebecca need to combine their efforts, but Noah points out he is the ex-boyfriend she mentions in her book without divulging his name. In the Harrisonburg, Virginia bookstore where she signs her book, he arrives to make his pitch that they should combine their efforts to develop artificial human blood; but her past continues to haunt her and her present leaves her life’s work in peril.

Lip Reading is an exciting medical thriller that grips the reader from the moment Noey and Becca reconnect and never releases that hold until the final stunning climax. Noah is a wonderful dedicated scientist, but Rebecca owns Dr. Harry Kraus’ latest fabulous novel (see A Heartbeat Away).
