Whoa, here's one I never would have thought of. According to the New York Daily News, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America commissioned a pulp fiction novel about a Croatian terrorist cell that murders Americans looking for cheap pharmaceuticals through Canadian Web sites. From the article:
When the project fell through in July, I'm told the drug lobby offered $100,000 to the co-authors and publisher in a vain effort to sweep it under the rug.
PhRMA says it was just an idea a consultant had, and they didn't go through with it. Wow, even my mind isn't devious enough to come up with a plot like this! (Thanks to Health Care Renewal for the pointer.)
