The Counterfeit Drug Murders
In The Counterfeit Drug Murders, a close friend of the two detectives, Margaret Hoffman and Paul O'Hare, dies from counterfeit prescription drugs. Further research indicates their friendsí deaths are part of a larger tragedy, including the demise of thousands from counterfeit and opioid drugs. The detectives vow to solve the cause of the deaths of their friends, and investigate illegalities in the drug industry. The author supports outlawing politicians accepting campaign contributions (bribes) from the drug industry.
