Rowena Diaz picked up the red phone with the blinking amber light. “What’s the problem Harvey?”
“Wilson Products is making a move on Quintos. He received a threatening letter.”
“Read it to me please.” Her pulse started to rise. Mary Murphy was getting nervous and nervous people make mistakes.
“Okay. Here it is.” Brasher read the page.
Wilson Products knows you were behind the hijacking and Dr. DeCarlo’s death. The same will happen to your product and to you unless you tell us the party responsible for the atrocity. Who is AC?”
Brasher paused. “There’s no signature to the letter.”
“Good. Contact Quintos and reassure him about his safety. I’ll remind him that part of our business agreement is for us to take care of such threatened repercussions. In the meantime use extreme sanctions on anyone you find approaching any Legg Pharmaceutical personnel.”
Harvey Brasher’s subspecialty within Internal Medicine was rheumatology. In the corporate world at the number two U.S. drug company, he was once a rising star with the NSAID class of drugs like ibuprofen and naproxen. When he pointed out a safety problem with a promising compound, however, he was threatened with termination if he didn’t continue with the registration program. Brasher was ripe for incorporation into The Adjustment Clinic and their pharmaceutical police force. He wrote a few notes.
“I’ll trace the letter and the messenger and relay the consequences to Wilson Medical Products.” He smiled a knowing smile. “And how do you feel about taking a bite out of Mary Murphy?”
“You know very well how I feel.” Diaz watched Brasher leave her office.
