Empire of Pain By Patrick Radden Keefe

Empire of Pain by Patrick Radden Keefe is a meticulously researched and compelling account that delves into the intricate web of the Sackler family—a name synonymous with both philanthropy and controversy. The Sackler family, known for their generous donations to prestigious institutions, harbored a dark secret. Their immense wealth was built upon the creation and marketing of OxyContin, a powerful painkiller that played a significant role in the devastating opioid crisis.

Patrick Radden Keefe masterfully unravels three generations of Sacklers, exposing their central role in this crisis. The book meticulously traces their ascent, the marketing strategies behind OxyContin, and the subsequent fallout as addiction and tragedy swept across America.
