Liefde en venyn tussen broers, botsende belange tussen handel en wetenskap, fabrieksmeisies wat met sekshormone volgestop word en testosteroongedrewe base Die hormoonfabriek is 'n bloedstollende verhaal, geinspireer deur historiese feite, waarin die onderskeid tussen goed en kwaad soms vertroebel raak deur die opwinding van wetenskaplike ontdekkings. Die suksesvolle besigheidsman Mordechai de Paauw, Motke vir sy vriende, besef op sy oudag dat hy nie daarin kon slaag om fatsoenlik te lewe nie. In die twintigerjare van die vorige eeu het hy en sy tweelingbroer Aron 'n asemrowende projek aangepak. Saam met die beroemde farmakoloog Rafael Levine het hulle 'n bedryf begin waarin die afvalvleis van Motke se vleisfabriek gebruik is vir die ontwikkeling van hormoonpreparate. Die omstandighede aan die begin van die onderneming is nie gunstig nie. Ernstige armoede, misdadigheid en opkomende antisemitisme vorm 'n giftige mengsel in die Katolieke plattelandse dorpie waar die twee broers woon en werk. Maar Motke de Paauw druk deur; geen prys is vir hom te hoog nie. As ten slotte na die Tweede Wereldoorlog bestek opgeneem word, blyk dit dat niemand ongeskonde uit die stryd gekom het nie.

"A dark, fascinating exploration of man's nature." - The Lancet. A riveting thriller about greed, power, hormones, illicit sex, and women ...and the monstrous megalomaniac who believes he can have it all. Vainglorious Mordechai de Paauw is ruthless: in the years before World War II, the Dutch pharmaceutical entrepreneur is on the cutting edge of science and determined to develop the contraceptive pill...no matter what the cost. Testing hormonal treatments on his female workers, and sexually exploiting them, Mordechai's secret immoral life and his successful company are threatened by the rise of Hitler and, years later, a shocking scandal involving his brash son. Will Mordechai ever find redemption, and will the women he manipulates regain control over their own bodies?
