Friday, October 21, 2005
When the American pharmaceutical industry looks north, it sees a great menace. And so a staffer at PhRMA had the bright idea of commissioning a novel about terrorists who taint the supply of Canadian generics.

Brooke recounts the strange genesis of "The Karasik Conspiracy," a tale of secret payments, terror, and revenge.
