   According to a recent story in the New York Times, 72,000 Americans died of drug overdoses last year. That is higher than the peak yearly annual deaths from H.I.V., car crashes and gun deaths. Analysts point to two major reasons for the increase: a growing number of Americans are using opioids, and drugs are becoming more deadly.

   In Wrongful Deaths, Dr. Combs shares what he learned about the synthetic drugs fentanyl and carfentanil during his research: a unit of carfentanil is 100 times as potent as the same amount of fentanyl, and 5,000 times as potent as a unit of heroin.

  Dr. Combs will talk about his book, and the eery similarities to a high profile overdose situation that just happened at a park in Connecticut on two upcoming national radio shows. He was on Coastal Daybreak in Morehead City, N.C. on Aug. 16, and will be on  WGVU Radio in Grand Rapids, Mich., on Aug. 20.
