Venus Conspiracy




A brilliant conspiracy thriller which combines breathtaking storytelling with fascinating research

How can a drug that makes people fall madly in love be a bad thing?

So thinks Professor Bacci when he inadvertently unlocks the biochemical key to falling in love, and develops a drug capable of creating emotions indistinguishable from the real thing.

Determined that the world should benefit from his discovery, he seeks funding and business advice from a private Swiss bank, owned by the secretive Kappel family. Unknown to Bacci, however, Helmut Kappel sees love as a sickness to be exploited, and has his own plan for abusing the drug's power - a cynical nightmare of breathtaking arrogance far removed from Bacci's naive dream of spreading love around the world.

Ripped from tomorrow's headlines, The Venus Conspiracy is Michael Cordy's latest glimpse of a compelling future where even human emotions can be bought and where true love can be faked...
