Lauren Beck is finally cancer free. But her friend and supporter during chemotherapy didn’t have that luck. Corrinne dies from cancer. Corrinne’s daughter blames Lauren for her mother’s death. She accuses her of mixing up the drugs in order causing euthanasia, just to stop her suffering. Even worse, she kicks her out from her house.
In the very same time, strange things start to happen. Someone is stealing Lauren’s identity. No more money on her credit cards, cancelled payments, unknown debts, Lauren never did anything of this. She suspects Corrine’s daughter but is no sure about anything. And Corrinne’s death, what if someone is responsible for her death?
Lauren is a former police officer, now works as a private investigator. With her identity stolen and no place to live, she has to swallow her pride and count on the people who aren’t her best friends. But most of it, she has to find out what really happened to her friend. She knows she didn’t do anything, but what if someone did? This time, she has to use her investigation skills and save people’s lives, including her own. ‘Cause someone is after her!

I loved the plot and loved the main character. The story has a couple of mysteries in it and until the last page, you have no idea if they are connected or not. As a pharmacist by myself, I enjoyed this drug-related mystery. It is a light read, even if it has some hard subjects in it. Cancer and identity stealing are never easy and light, but this author made the story interesting to read and perfect for a weekend chill-out with a good book.
And because today is World Pharmacist Day, I decided to publish this review today. The story includes drugs, medications, pharmaceutical mafia, and I think it is perfect for this day. Happy World Pharmacist Day!


My opinion: 4 / 5.
