A drug company executive is about to blow the lid off the pharmaceutical industry . . . revealing everything from sex in the corner office to private investigators spying on employees, company phone surveillance, FBI investigations and financial shenanigans resulting in million-dollar payouts.

Dr. Peter Rost , author of “The Whistleblower — Confessions of a Healthcare Hitman,” today revealed that Pfizer has asked the US District Court, NY, to advise on relief and for sanctions against Dr. Rost for writing “The Whistleblower,” per recently released court records, case no. 05-CV-10384. (Court transcript attached.)

In a separate legal communiqué, Pfizer’s lawyer writes, “Be advised that we are in the process of evaluating the extent to which this book likewise violates the Protective Order.” Pfizer has also requested “Confidential” designation of virtually all documents used to write “The Whistleblower.”

“Pfizer’s attempt to stop ‘The Whistleblower’ and deny the public the right to view associated documents may not be surprising considering the explosive content and Pfizer’s infamous history as the only drug company forced by the government to sign not just one, but two separate Corporate Integrity Agreements,” said Dr. Rost.

The New York Post wrote the following review, “A drug company executive is about to blow the lid off the pharmaceutical industry . . . revealing everything from sex in the corner office to private investigators spying on employees, company phone surveillance, FBI investigations and financial shenanigans resulting in million-dollar payouts.”

And L Magazine stated, “In this Enron-esque exposé of the healthcare industry, an . . . executive reveals everything you should already be assuming about most multinational corporations. You know, greed, spying, million-dollar payouts, and sex in the corner office.”

Medical Marketing & Media, a drug industry publication, concluded that “The Whistleblower” is “a scathing account of the allegedly 'insidious' practices of the industry that once paid (Dr. Rost’s) salary and of the US healthcare system. The media is sure to lap it up.”

Soft Skull Press sold the entire first printing during the first day of sale, September 10, 2006.
