“Unlike previous books on the [opioid] epidemic, “Empire of Pain” is focused on the wildly rich, ambitious and cutthroat family that built its empire first on medical advertising and later on painkillers. In his hands, their story becomes a great American morality tale about unvarnished greed dressed in ostentatious philanthropy.” —The New York Time
