Summary, etc.:
This book tells the story of a pharmacy in Kermit, West Virginia, that distributed twelve million opioid pain pills in three years to a town with a population of 382 people. Eyre follows the opioid shipments into individual counties, pharmacies, and homes in West Virginia and explains how they hooked thousands on prescription drugs, resulting in the highest overdose rates in the country. The author uncovered a massive opioid pill-dumping scandal that shook the foundation of America's largest drug companies.
