Book News Annotation:

An expose of the tobacco industry chronicling R.J. Reynolds' and Brown and Williamson's deceitful marketing and manufacturing practices. Hilts, the New York Times journalist who broke the Brown and Williamson tobacco papers story, inflames his subject with details of how the industry markets to children, the reticence of Congress to vote against tobacco interests, the dangerous practices of cigarette manufacturing (just about everything but tobacco), and profiles of now famous whistle blowers, Jeffrey Wigand and Merrell Williams.
