Storyline

Karen is a pharmaceutical sales representative with an expensive habit to support. She encounters Dr. Brule in his office and is desperate to make a sale. Dr. Brule is charmed by Karen, but very uneasy about some of the "medication" she is pushing. Karen attempts to keep herself together as she shamelessly changes tactics in an effort to achieve her goal. Will Dr. Brule stick to his ethical high ground, or will Karen succeed in her slightly disturbing survival quest? Written by Sera-Lys McArthur

Dr. Brule: You know, the townsfolk were not the victims in that book.
Karen: What book?
