The Venus Conspiracy, Paperback
3.5 out of 5 (3 ratings)


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...

Review by

It's weak sci-fi, it's not particularly taut action, there's not much meaningful character development and the plot is rather far fetched. With those points aside, Cordy has created a quick, easy to read future-tech thriller which pulls reader from cover to cover. There's a maniacal madman, a ruthless killer with a buried past, a beautiful and innocent woman caught in the plot and a spectacular showdown in a remote locale - it's pulp adventure writing at maximum throttle. Slip you brain in to neutral and read it.

Review by

Everything a good book should have; a killer, a hero and an unusual subject to fight over.

Review by

Dan Brown-like in the storytelling but generally an engaging read.
