Radden Keefe's latest saga chronicles three generations of a single family and the mark they would leave on the world. It is a tale that moves from the streets of early twentieth-century Brooklyn to the seaside palaces of Greenwich, Connecticut, to the corridors of power in Washington, D.C. Empire of Pain chronicles the multiple investigations of the Sacklers and their company, and the scorched-earth legal tactics that the family has used to evade accountability. A grand, devastating portrait of a family, famed for their philanthropy, whose fortune was built by Valium and whose reputation was destroyed by OxyContin.
