Click here, to listen to a review of Beal's bookWhat if at the time of death the human brain creates a chemical that puts us in a state of pure ecstasy as the spirit prepares to leave the body? What if terrorists learned to make this drug and pushed it on our streets? Once tried, ordinary people would do anything to get it. It would leave our society in a state of Fatal Addiction. This story is fiction—or is it? With over 30 years experience in pharmaceuticals, Everett Beal, Rph. Is compelled to tell the public of an amoral trend in a multi-billion dollar industry that could put our entire country in a state of Fatal Addiction while terrorists wait in the shadows.The hero of the story is Tyler, a small town pharmacist who learns that terrorists have secretly altered a legal drug (Oxy-Contin) to make it hopelessly addictive. Working undercover for Homeland Security, he investigates a fellow pharmacist who is trafficking the altered drug out onto the streets. Tyler is soon enveloped in a dangerous morass of pervasive evil that is so large that he sees no way out. His one salvation is his love for Miriam, whose three year old daughter was raped and brutally murdered by an OxyContin addict.As skilled with his pen as he is in his profession, Everett Beal has masterfully told a captivating tale of intrigue, mystery and danger that has its dark side leavened by the love and courage of a couple who struggle against an overwhelming tide of greed and terrorism.

stared straight ahead.Conversation was down to a whisper, leaving glassy facial expressions to tell the story.Witnesses, separated from Toby by a glass wall,totaled almost twenty,mostly family from both sides.

I have personally corresponded with this author, and read his book. It will open your eyes, in addition to entertaining you.
Book by Everett Beal/ WEBeal@aol.com
Every once in a while a book comes-out at just the right time. Everett Beal's Fatal Addiction is one such book. Amid a fictional story which is based upon true-life scenarios and rather scary possibilities, the author relates the problems of drug usage, both legal and illegal, in our modern world.
From the short novel's blood-chilling start, through a course of events that only a veteran Rph (Pharmacist) could assimilate and detail, a nice love story, and an eventual surprising ending, Mr. Beal does a nice job of making the reader aware of drug-related problems that everyday people think nothing about. He also puts forth the possibility of terrorists getting to the American drug supply and killing us by the thousands. (The notion is not far-fetched.)
The book's hero, a local pharmacist named Tyler, inadvertently becomes involved in a thrilling Homeland Security plot to foil the manufacturing and illegal distribution of an altered and super-deadly form of oxycontin. Along the way he finds love with Miriam, hope, despair, and then hope again. As the book cover promises, it is a tale of intrigue guaranteed to set the reader's mind to thinking about once negligible possibilities, in the new age of international terrorism.
This is a novel about a couple finding each other and rebuilding their lives and belief in love, after two separate sets of horrific circumstances. However, service to the town and nation are their top priority.
This book should be required high school reading for juniors and seniors. Without being preachy, the tale demonstrates the corrupting possibilities which drugs deviously hold over citizens from age 1 to 100, well-intentioned or not. As Mr. Beal, from Griffin, Georgia, is personally fond of saying, "Addiction knows no classes, nor boundaries." You can believe him, and will. Buy the book.

Dear Dr. Beal,
I read your book and was amazed at the amount of destruction you had observed through your drugstore and in the city of Griffin. It's frightening to see the increase in crime rate in our city and neighboring towns. I thoroughly appreciated your book and enjoyed it. I think it is a great eye opener and have reccomended it to many of my friends. I plan to purchase some more of your books as Christmas gifts and wondered if you will be at any book signing soon.
Please accept my apologies for being so slow to respond. I've actually sent the book home with my daughter, Dr, Kimberli Carpenter in Douglas, Ga. and feel she will reccomend it to her fellow physicians in her life. She said she had to put it down when she got to the part about the little boy in Barnesville due to having two girls of her own at one and two yrs. of age and a baby boy due in January. It's a shame our world has changed with so much evil around all the time. Your book will help parents to see some of the dangers out there and Kimberli said she would finish reading it in the near future. Our five grandchildren are all under three except two eight yr. olds so we are always on the go with them . A lot of fun but also a lot of work. May God Bless you in your work. Sincerely, Lois Hall

Carla, a lover of nature, November 10, 2005, Wake Up Call
This book did more than wake me up to a lot of what has been going on around
me that I was not aware of. It made me stop and look at medications that my
doctor and the hospital recommended that I take during my recovery from double knee replacements. The hospital staff was amazed that I refused to use the morphine drip that I was provided. I hate pills completely so I opted not to take any pain killers, but to deal with the pain in other ways and thru prayer. I realized it would have been easy to become addicted to those medications as I have seen others do. Luckily for me I had an example to give me extra drive, my own sister. I wish she had a chance to read this book before she was taken from me because of an overdose. I feel that Mr Beal's book would have made her see what she was doing to herself. Maybe if she had the insight that I got from this book, she would still be with me.
Thank you Mr. Beal for making me see
the world around me a lot clearier. You are an awesome author. I look forward to more of your work.
