Overview

On September 29, 1982, seven people in Chicago died after taking Extra Strength Tylenol capsules laced with cyanide. Officials have long cited the scarcity of physical evidence and apparent lack of motive to explain why they never solved the Tylenol murders. However, new revelations and information not previously disclosed tell a very different story of a crime that should have been solved.

In a story both fascinating and dramatic in its warnings, The Tylenol Mafia rips away the facade of an investigation that J&J CEO James Burke labeled “A demonstration without parallel of government and business working with the news media to help protect the public.” This gripping, meticulously documented expose’ unearths the troubling details of an investigation corrupted by well-connected corporate executives and politically motivated government officials who simply buried the truth inside a shadow legal system inaccessible to everyday Americans.

Editorial Reviews

O'Dwyer PR - Jack O'Dwyer
"The Tylenol Mafia," by Scott Bartz, an exposé of Johnson & Johnson’s manipulation of facts surrounding the murder of seven people in the Chicago area in 1982 via Extra Strength Tylenol, will create a big headache for J&J, the media that went along with this ruse, and authorities such as the FBI, local police and the courts that did flawed and even dishonest work.

His tell-all, insider’s book is of the same genre as Deadly Spin by Wendell Potter

Meet the Author

Scott Bartz embarked on a career as an independent journalist thanks to the support of Johnson & Johnson’s human resources and security personnel who encouraged him to seek a new line of work as they escorted him from the company’s premises on the morning he returned from a “secret” meeting with government prosecutors investigating allegations of Medicaid fraud at J&J. His fulltime career as a writer was precipitated by his work as the co-author of “United States of America, ex rel. Scott Bartz, vs. Johnson & Johnson, et al.” (Case 1:11-cv-10316-RGS).

    I read this book when it first came out a few years ago and I am still highly recommending it to anyone who takes any kind of prescription drug. Regardless if you remember the Tylenol murders in the Chicago murders or not, this book is a must read for a look into the pharmaceutical world.
