The DrugTech Trilogy by Marcel Victor Sahade contains three separate books. Each book contains a collection of suspenseful short stories. Each story is independent, however, there is a common theme woven through the stories. The common theme is the pharmaceutical company called DrugTech. DrugTech employs many scientists working on different projects. They are researching to cure diseases and developing new scientific inventions. However, DrugTech is more concerned about making money than anything else.

Each story focuses on people or places with some relevance to DrugTech. Some of the more prominent characters reappear in stories. For example, in the first book of the trilogy, two college friends meet again after many years. One of the friends has created a Trans Warp Inducer. It is still in the testing stages; however, this invention could change the world. It can physically move objects from point A to point B. Discussions of this invention appear repeatedly throughout the three books in this trilogy. It is interesting to see how it moves through the development stages and is discussed by the scientists at DrugTech. I can’t provide too much detail about the invention without divulging spoilers.

I enjoyed reading this book. Each story was unique, and the author consistently provided an unexpected twist to each story. These surprise endings created a suspenseful reading experience. Even when I knew a twist was coming, I couldn’t anticipate what it would be. I liked the interwoven stories the most in this book. Minor characters in one short story would reappear in another story to provide additional background. The author was very creative in the way he connected the stories.

I also liked the scientific aspects of the book. The experiments and discoveries are explained in detail. This was very satisfying to me as a reader. When the thought processes of the scientists were explained, it made the discoveries and inventions seem real. Even the hierarchy within DrugTech was realistic. Ultimately management would decide which projects to continue and which projects to discontinue based on profits. The relationships between the older scientists and the younger scientists were also interesting. The older scientists provided guidance or warnings based on their experiences with the company. There was nothing I disliked about this book.

I recommend this book to readers who enjoy short stories, especially science fiction. It would also appeal to readers who enjoy suspenseful novels. Each chapter can be read as a separate story; however, they build on one another to focus on the common theme of DrugTech. I saw less than ten errors, so I believe the book was professionally edited. I found this book to be very suspenseful and enjoyable to read. For the reasons stated, I give this book a rating of 4 out of 4 stars. It is deserving of a perfect score because it is very creative and expertly provides unexpected connections between the different stories.

This is a trilogy of suspense-filled stories. I've always loved reading trilogies, and I'm sure that this one would be a good read. The book involves Tech, drug, and money. Good plot. Thanks for your review.

I love almost any story that involves drugs, scientists and undeveloped science experiments. I've written a story with many of the same elements in it. Will check it out.

I reviewed the first book of the trilogy and I liked it, so I read the following books when they were published. I appreciated how the stories formed a consistent bigger picture, like the pieces of a mosaic. That picture addressed a number of ethical and moral issues, so there's also some food for thought. Thank you for your great review!
Ciao :)
