"An unusual job" by Trudy Wassenaar

Readers, greetings! I have been busy busy with projects and thus haven't been updating my blog as often as I'd like. Let me make it up to you by telling you about this book I worked on recently, "An unusual job" by Trudy Wassenaar.

Dr Trudy Wassenaar has intensive experience in the medical field. Her medical background puts her in the unique position of having vast knowledge with which to weave this medical mystery. The main character, Sue Swanson, owns a scientific consulting company, specializing in microbiology and genomics, much like the author. She seeks some outside work to occupy her time, and ends up working for a pharmaceutical company as a packer of pills. She quickly discovers some irregularities with the products she's packing, and from there embarks on an adventure to help the CEO of the company uncover exactly what nefarious activities are happening right under his nose, things that could ruin the big pharmaceutical company's reputation irrevocably.

Trudy's medical background is the perfect complement to her writing, as she provides the readers with lots of interesting scientific information that helps move the plot along and also throws the readers even deeper into the story. Sue Swanson, the heroine, is very well developed. You can almost believe this person exists in real life, and that the book isn't fiction at all, but a truthful retelling of a woman's adventure. I had never experienced such a wonderful form of storytelling like when I read and worked on Dr Wassenaar's book, such a mix of fiction and real-life scientific truths. It's a truly enjoyable read, not boring at all, and with some humor thrown in, so the book isn't serious or dry.

Feel free to check out the book on Amazon. You can get it in print or ebook format. Go ahead and leave a review if you enjoy it as much as I did!
