Feeding the Gods by Elizabeth Harrison
Roberta, Rosie, Sandra and Linda meet at college in the 70s and remain constant friends, despite life's up and downs. The sudden death of one of the friends leads the others to suspect that a slimming drug she had been taking was perhaps to blame. Was this a wonder drug or a threat to life? The friends start to uncover long-held secrets and betrayals - both personal and professional, but the pharmaceutical industry is not yet finished with them. Feeding the Gods is a thriller that addresses friendships, the different roles a woman must take on through life and the power of the drug giants.
