Loved it! Something for everyone…. law, medicine, good against evil….Can’t wait for the next book by Dr. Marx! Big Pharma got what they deserved! The world needs more people like Dr. Marx.
I really enjoyed this book! The real strength of this novel is the absolute integrity of the scientific information that is offered to the reading public. And the powerful message came through!
There is a lot to learn in this book and you quietly do so while having a fun read. Kudos, Dr. Marx. Yes, science can be fun!
Reads more like one of James Paterson’s best. Hard to believe that Dr. Bobby is the author. He could probably earn more writing, but the U of Miami and his patients need him more. Can’t wait for the next book!
This is a very well written and action-packed murder and corruption mystery book that will hold your attention from beginning to end. Can’t wait for the next one.
From the beginning, starting with the name and cover of the book, Deadly Prescription does not disappoint. The story explodes with a violent act towards the protagonist, Dr. Merriweather, and then becomes informative about the wonderful work done by the doctors and an honor bestowed. All the while, however, the reader knows something is wrong here. A doctor is murdered but why? The author shows the underbelly of the unscrupulous drug pharmacies and lawyers all waiting to make a buck at the consumers expense. The reader will find out that there is a nexus making this all for exciting reading. The reader gets a look inside the legal maneuvers and the justice system and the catching of a killer.
Cheers to Dr. Marx for taking time out of his very busy life to bring a very real problem to light for those outside of science. Dr. Marx opens up the world of trials and testifying against Big Pharma, and shows it is not for the fainthearted. While lesser medical professionals have caved in to the allure of Big Pharma, Dr. Marx stands tall as a hero for professionals and a life saver for countless people. This book leads the reader through the science of bone drugs, the problems when greed trips up common decency, and the perils when you put them together. Enjoy!
In Dr. Robert E. Marx’s cutting-edge medical thriller, the protagonist Dr. Robert Merriweather confronts the realms of cell biology, big pharma, white shoe law firms, FDA and ultimately — deadly human greed and rage. I enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone interested in a good thriller that is based on real life events. The book is well paced, the characters are interesting and there are enough twists and turns to keep the pages turning. Excellent debut thriller from Dr. Robert E. Marx, one of the top Oral Maxillofacial surgeons in the world.
“Deadly Prescription” drew me right in from the first chapter. I easily engaged with the characters and felt as I couldn’t read it quickly enough because it was so engrossing. The story was well crafted and unpredictable, with lots of medical (and well explained) information pertinent to oral and maxillofacial surgery. I look forward to the next novel from this wonderful surgeon!
A must for every oral surgeon. Great book!! Written by a master of the specialty describing a story on a pharmaceutical company trying to manipulate clinical results for the wrong reasons.
Reading a thriller that is so real—it will keep you reading till the end.
I have a certain amount of professional knowledge on this subject and have been involved with treating patients with this malady. This book for me was suspenseful. It was entertaining and is backed by the best research today on the subject of bisphosphonate induced osteitis of the jaws and bones. It is worth the read and I would recommend the book. It merits the truth behind the power and monies of pharmaceutical companies. Thank you Dr. Marx for the adventurous book.
Great book. You want to keep reading it. There is truth to it. Amazing!
