Drug of Choice is a novel written by Michael Crichton under the pseudonym John Lange. It was originally published in 1970. Hard Case Crime will republish the novel under Crichton's name on November 19, 2013.[1]

Film Version[edit]

Film rights were optioned in 1970 by the actor Robert Forster and his agent David de Silva, to produce a movie starring Forster called High Synch. John Neufeld was hired to write a screenplay. "Unlike the book, our script will not have a happy ending," said Forster. "We think the movie ought to serve as a warning."[2] However the film was never made.
