One minute Mark Duxbury was a hotshot sales rep, praised and honored by his employer, a pharmaceutical company. In a matter of a few years, his career spiraled downward as he turned into a whistle-blower. The author uses narrative to set up this story of the inherent problems in the sales structure of prescription drugs, specifically one used on cancer patients. Coleen Marlo clearly gets across Duxbury’s utter exasperation, an emotion that is needed continually throughout this story. Her voice for a man, while consistent, is simply a lowered tone. Still, it’s an amazing story to follow. Narrative writing requires painstaking reporting, which is found here. Both writer and narrator do a good job of making the topic clear and compelling.
