BIg Pharma's Worst Nightmare: Public Rallies Around Miracle Man Genius, Says Publisher of the Award Winning Cross-genre Thriller, "Miracle Man" by William R. Leibowitz
New York (PRUnderground) April 29th, 2014
The public excitement about Miracle Man, a cross-genre thriller by award winning novelist, William R. Leibowitz, underscores the broadly held negative perception of Big Pharma. So says, a spokesperson for Manifesto Media Group, the publisher of the novel.
In Miracle Man, Robert James Austin, the greatest genius in human history and a veritable modern day superhero, devotes his extraordinary intellect to finding cures for human ailments. Austin works outside of the auspices of the pharmaceutical companies and has no interest in profiting from his discoveries. As Austin points out, “The pharmaceutical companies derive huge financial gains –not by eradicating diseases, but by treating them with medicines that require repetitive application– and that’s where the money is.”
Austin is viewed by Big Pharma, not as a God-send, but as a competitor who must be eliminated. While Austin faces other powerful adversaries who desire to destroy or exploit him, the coalition of pharmaceutical companies that unite to oppose him is highly resourceful and not to be underestimated.
Would Big Pharma really go to the lenghts conceived by the novelist to stand in the way of a genius like Robert James Austin?
“I have absolutely no doubt that it would,” says William R. Leibowitz, the author of Miracle Man. “History is replete with examples of business interests going to extremes to fight any public good that threatens their profits. When tens of billions of dollars per annum hang in the balance, there is no limit to what has been done in the past, is being done right now in the present, and will be done in the future to protect the bottom-line of these businesses. They are oblivious to everything other than their own self-interests. That’s just the reality that we live in.”
Miracle Man has been unanimously heralded by critics and readers. “The enthusiasm for this unique novel has been overwhelming. It is connecting with readers on many levels — as a story of great originality, a thriller that doesn’t cease to surprise, and then on an emotional and spiritual plane. The novel is finding its audience with all age groups and genders. That’s why the book is garnering such acclaim,” says MMG.
The Midwest Book Review said, ” To call Miracle Man a medical thriller or a political story would be to do it an injustice. Miracle Man is about miracles, motivations, ethics and morals, and the influence of special interests in the work of gemius minds. It’s ultimately about the ability to withstand moral and ethical temptations against all odds. Readers are treated to a plot with many twists and turns: it holds intrigue, describes compulsions and diversions, shows how a genius battles dark forces within and outside of himself, and generally paints a powerful picture of a search for privacy, as much as meaning. And so a gripping novel of psychological tension becomes much more than your usual “thriller”. Miracle Man is a pick for any who want high octane action and emotionally-charged reading right up to an unexpected, gripping conclusion.”
The accolades for Miracle Man from readers keep coming in. Here are just a few of the 5 Star Amazon reviews:
