Ann Patchett's New "Wonder Drug Novel"

Patchett's new novel, "State of Wonder," is about a medical researcher at a Minnesota-based pharmaceutical company who is sent to the Amazon to investigate the fishy circumstances surrounding the death of her lab partner, who himself had been sent to the Amazon to check on a ruthless doctor the company has been paying to develop a miracle fertility drug.

A review in The New York Times calls the book "an engaging, consummately told tale."
