About this item

Donald Bain continues the beloved Capital Crimes series with Margaret Truman’s Deadly Medicine, a gripping tale of greed, betrayal—and murder.

If someone in the pharmaceutical industry came upon a cheaper, non-addictive, and more effective painkiller, would he kill for it? Washington, D.C., private detective Robert Brixton discovers the answer is a resounding “Yes,” as he helps Jayla King, a medical researcher at a small D.C. pharmaceutical firm, carry on the work of her father. Dr. Preston King’s experiments in the jungles of Papua New Guinea and the discoveries he made led to his brutal murder and the theft of his papers.

Did her father’s lab assistant kill the doctor and steal his research? Is this shadowy figure prepared to kill again to keep Jayla from profiting from her father’s work? Does her recent paramour’s romantic interest reflect his true feelings—or will he sell her out and reap the rewards for himself? And to what lengths would Big Pharma’s leading lobbyist go to cover up his involvement with King’s death . . . and to protect a leading champion of the pharmaceutical industry, a Georgia senator with a shady past?

No pill can ease the pain that the answers to these questions will inflict.
