Narrator Ben Candidi, almost a doctor of pharmacology, jumps at the chance to serve as highly paid consultant to an investor in medical technology. The Miami-based outfit Ben must investigate seems quite adept at subverting his efforts to gather crucial information. Despite his Mensa-level intelligence, Ben often displays a Watson-in-the-presence-of-Sherlock mentality until the plot, proceeding from one dry scene fraught with scientific jargon and paper shuffling to the next, finally results in murder. Of possible regional interest.
