A special thanks to the editor of the Minnesota Women's Press for publishing a column written by Patricia Cumbie, author of The Shape of a Hundred Hips, in the Sept. 2018 issue of the magazine. The story appears on Page 6 of the magazine, and can be accessed online here.
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.
Dr. Tom Combs of Plymouth, Minn., a former emergency room physician, who now writes medical thrillers, says the problem isn’t going away any time soon. Ironically, his latest novel, which was just released last month, puts readers on the front lines of the opioid epidemic.
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.
