BIG PHARMA DOESN’T WANT TO CURE DISEASES Says William R. Leibowitz, Award Winning Novelist, in the cross-genre thriller, MIRACLE MAN
New York, NY (PRUnderground) March 17th, 2014
In his award winning novel, Miracle Man, author William R. Leibowitz makes the case that Big Pharma has no interest in curing diseases and, in fact, prefers not to. Miracle Man’s protagonist, Dr. Robert James Austin, the greatest genius in human history, becomes a prime target of the pharmaceuticals industry when he dedicates his extraordinary intelligence to finding cures for diseases.
As Dr. Austin says, “No major disease has been cured in decades. The thrust is not to find a cure, but to create a treatment – a product that can be sold, again and again; ongoing treatments with drugs rather than cures. Keep selling those pills day after day rather than eradicate the need for them.”
As Austin’s success in finding cures escalates, he becomes a marked man. Column McAlister, the CEO of one of the largest pharmaceutical companies doesn’t mince words. “Austin is single handedly ruining our business and we needto get pro-active and do something about it. If he keeps going on like he has –the only thing left for us to sell will be tampons and laxatives.”
As Robert James Austin evolves into a modern day Superhero savior, he is opposed not only by the pharmaceuticals industry, rabid anti-Western radicals and an obsessive government leader, but also by forces that are more powerful than even he can understand. Miracle Man has been unanimously heralded by reviewers. The Midwest Book Review said, “To call this novel a ‘medical thriller’ or a ‘political story’ would be to do it an injustice. Miracle Man is about miracles, motivations, and the ability to withstand moral and ethical temptations against all odds. Readers are treated to a plot with many twists and turns: it holds intrigue, describes compulsions and diversions, and paints a powerful picture of the search for privacy, as much as meaning. This gripping novel of psychological tension is a pick for any who want high octane action and emotionally-charged reading right up to an unexpected, gripping conclusion.”
Miracle Man is available in paperback on Amazon and in Kindle, Nook and ibook formats.
