Publisher's Summary

After the death of their daughter, Phil and Jessica must find a balance in their marriage while struggling with being middle class in the Midwest. 

Richard, a university scientist, is being paid by a pharmaceutical company to put his name on studies he didn't conduct. 

Allysa, the representative of the pharmaceutical company, wants a more lavish life. 

Maurice, the local reporter for a small town online newspaper, wants to connect some dots. 

"[A] meticulously researched and deliberately presented, building the drama of ordinary people facing wealthy giants who normally crush them. Gruenloh spares nobody in his script: the pharmaceutical companies, the marketers, the academic community so eager to get in on the big money by signing off on drug tests, and, of course, Congress." (FromtheEditr) 

“What marks a good playwright is his sense of how fiction works in motion. Gruenloh has that.” (The Roanoke Times)

Interesting topic

Most ppl don’t pay attention to the side effects of medications, they just trust the doctors. Doctors rely on the studies that are published and yes often by ghost writers
It’s hard to know what to believe!
