The Mafia’s Pushing Drugs. Prescription Drugs. John O’Connor Fights Back and Defies the Mob! A young man takes a job as a representative for a pharmaceutical company, not realizing that his predecessor was murdered, because she knew too much about what was really going on! The Mafia-connected conspiracy to steal and sell prescription drugs on the multi-million dollar pharmaceutical gray market. John O’Connor is quickly ensnared into a web of deceit and criminality that he could never have imagined when he hired on. John is a decent, hard-working, good-looking son of the Midwest. After college, he returns to his hometown saddled with large loans to pay off and the burning desire for a lucrative career. He signs on to Chalk Pharmaceuticals unaware he was hand-picked for the sales position because his character showed obvious traits. He wants quick money and is very materialistic. John meets and falls in love with a beautiful Filipino nurse and he seems to have the world by a string. Great job. Great social life. Great friends to hang around with. The future is bright. The catch: like it or not, he’s going to be part of a three-legged stool strategy to redirect pharmaceuticals under the direction of his company’s rogue boss. The DA’s office is investigating the mobs involvement in a treacherous scheme. The price of John stopping organized crime could lead to his untimely demise!
