Rarely, somewhat with experience on both sides of a complex issue speaks out. Here, it is a licensed physician and a professor of biostatistics who has worked both with the FDA and with Big Pharma on drug development. This striking story line depicts with razor sharp clarity the dilemma of medical research that engages the reader.
Dr. Lem Moyé, M.D., Ph.D, shares the well-received thriller, Saving Grace, under Toplink Publishing/Marketing Firm. Saving Grace describes the physical, emotional, and moral sacrifices of scientists and parents as they work under extraordinary pressure to cure a deadly affliction, laying bare the complications of the modern drug industry. Lindsey Silva, Ph.D., a young and aggressive scientist, is recruited by a major pharmaceutical company to work on Project LifeBlood, a remarkable new cure for the deadly Norris's disease. As shortcomings in the industry reveal themselves, Dr. Silva sacrifices both her family and her future to discover LifeBlood's hidden secrets.
Grace Landing is a child afflicted with a deadly variant of Norris' disease. She and Andrew, her father travel to a major university to begin treatment for Gracie's illness. The pace of the new drug review evaluation accelerates, revealing the weaknesses of the biopharm//FDA drug approval process as Lindsey and the Landings commit themselves totally to Gracie's cure.
This story is not simply about the life of Grace. Each passing page uncovers more of the characters’ complicated motives.. Dr. Moyé balances great pace and evocatively descriptive style to reach out and grip readers with no background in medicine.
Blueink Reviewer states, “His characters are well developed, showing palpable expressions of intensity, compassion, fear or ruthlessness where appropriate, and his solid dialogue is spot on. The briskly paced plot is electrically charged from page one."
