Bill Powers is the award-winning author of two exciting suspense thrillers.
The Pharm House is a foreboding and darkly suspenseful debut medical thriller by Bill Powers set in the hidden underworld of the global pharmaceutical business. Even though The Pharm House is set in a pharmaceutical company, it is really a story about family. It’s about Nicholas Harding, a young scientist/executive at Marshall Pharmaceutical. Nicholas is a regular guy – a single Dad trying to raise a precocious 11-year-old daughter while clawing his way up that ever so slippery middle management ladder. But unknown to Nicholas, there are dark forces inside Marshall Pharmaceutical and he is about to be drawn into their plans and finds himself fighting for his career, his family and perhaps even his life.
In this suspenseful thriller, Bill investigates the underworld of the international pharmaceutical industry, which includes unscrupulous activities at the hands of corporate lieges traversing the planet and seducing young women while soliciting, marketing, manufacturing and selling legalized addiction under the guise of medicinal purpose. The scenes are seamy and torrid as well as realistic and matter of fact.
Do you ever wonder how drugs get in those little brown bottles? Read The Pharm House and you may give it a second thought.
In emerging American author Bill Powers’ debut medical thriller, The Pharm House – which was the Finalist in the Medical Thriller category of the 2014 National Indie Excellence Awards – readers were introduced to Nicholas Harding and his daughter, Andrea.
Now comes the second Harding family story, The Torch is Passed, named Best Book in the Category of Thriller of the Pinnacle Book Achievement Award for Winter 2016. A suspenseful and plot-twisting story, The Torch is Passed finds Andrea’s world turned upside down when her father, Nicholas, and her uncle, Michael, are shot in a shocking and puzzling attack. With only her paternal grandmother left, it falls to Andrea – a recent college graduate – to not only investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding the attack of her father and uncle, but also to oversee Harding Industries – and navigate an often dangerous fast-track to adulthood.
Along with new allies, Andrea urgently seeks answers to why anyone would want to kill her entire family – growing up along the way – and seeking her revenge.
Brimming with plot twists, unexpected decisions, and recurring threats to relationships, The Torch is Passed is a tantalizing read with historical references including a subplot involving an old land deal setup by John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company over one hundred years ago that involves the Harding family. “The Torch is Passed and other books in The Harding Family series carry the basic theme of family and what people may be driven to do to protect the ones they love,” says Powers.
