A medical investigator tormented by secret guilt. A beautiful doctor with an illicit desire. A millionaire businessman indulging a passion for murder. And a human guinea pig who has been awake for seven straight weeks. DISTURB by JA Konrath You’ll never sleep well again… Book Description It’s the pharmaceutical breakthrough of the millennium. DruTech Industries proudly presents N-SOM, a pill that completely replaces eight hours of sleep. Feel totally refreshed, both physically and mentally, in just fifteen minutes a night. The profit potential is boundless. Mankind’s productivity will go through the roof. One third of a person’s life could be recovered, for only ten dollars a dose. The FDA sends CDER agent Dr. Bill May to green light N-SOM for American use. The pressure, both political and monetary, is tremendous. But Bill soon harbors fears that N-SOM may not be as safe as early reports indicate… After meeting brilliant inventors Dr. Nikos Stefanopolous and his beautiful daughter Theena, Bill stumbles into an insidious cover-up that hinges on Emmanuel Tibbets, a human guinea pig who hasn’t had a wink of sleep in over fifty days. Bill’s investigation soon unearths a snarled tangle of extortion, conspiracy, taboo sex, hidden secrets, and murderous betrayal.
