WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"If you can read only one book this summer, it should be Capitol Reflections, the new thriller by Dr. Jonathan Javitt. Not only is this gripping novel almost impossible to put down, but it illustrates potentially vital problems with the safety of America's food supply."
— New York Post
A series of inexplicable and deadly seizures has come to the attention of the FDA’s Dr. Gwen Maulder after her best friend, a New York lawyer, falls victim—along with a number of other young professionals.
Maulder can’t seem to get a hold on the cause of the puzzling deaths, but her investigation is raising alarms in the corporate world and threatening a senator with a chilling secret. Even her superiors are pushing her to back off, despite the mounting death toll. With the help of her ex-Secret Service husband and an intrepid journalist, she’s determined to uncover what sort of ruthless conspiracy may lie at the heart of this threat—even if it means putting her own life on the line . . .
Written by an epidemiologist who has served multiple presidential administrations, this is a frightening, action-packed thriller with “a nice twist at the end” (Publishers Weekly).
