The characters do come off as a little one-dimensional, however, and the book might have benefited from additional back story, such as how Pam became so interested in Alzheimer’s research. Nonetheless, this is an engrossing read...

Synopsis

Winner of National Indie Excellence Award.What does it take to win a Nobel Prize? Deceit, fraud, even murder? Set in the competitive world of cutting-edge medical research, The Prize is a science thriller in which jealousy over the discovery of a treatment for Alzheimer's disease leads to fraud, betrayal and violence.
Pam Weller makes the discovery of a lifetime when she finds a drug with the potential for treating Alzheimer's. But her success threatens the supremacy of Eric Prescott, a leading figure in Alzheimer's research. Lusting relentlessly for the Nobel Prize, Prescott fears that Pam's work will derail his ambitions. He seduces one of Pam's research fellows and enlists her in a plot to brand Pam a fraud and steal her discovery. Leading Pam into a world where nothing is real, except threats to her career, her freedom and even her life.
