Drug of Choice is a novel written by Michael Crichton under the pseudonym John Lange. It was originally published in 1970. Hard Case Crime republished the novel under Crichton's name in November 2013.

Proposed film adaptation[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."[1] However the film was never made.
