American Cartel, by Scott Higham and Sari Horwitz

Staff Pick

Two skilled and dogged journalists expand on their groundbreaking exposés in the Washington Post to produce an authoritative book on how drug companies, aided by doctors, pharmacists, lawyers, and politicians, intentionally and recklessly distributed billions of pain pills, fostering the opioid crisis. The book makes clear that the Sackler family and their Perdue Pharma were hardly alone in seeking to profit off the addictions of millions of pain medication users. It also highlights some heroic attempts to thwart such corporate greed and callousness—notably by DEA whistleblower Joseph T. Rannazzisi and West Virginia small-town lawyer Paul T. Farrell Jr.
