Smoke Screen by Kyle Mills Coronet $101 Smoke Screen is an entertaining and inventive drama that explores the hypocrisy of the US tobacco industry. Trevor Barnett, 32, is a member of one of the south's oldest tobacco families. His huge inheritance has one condition: that he works in the tobacco industry. He hates it, but can't bear to give up his trust fund, so he hides in a low-level research position. After writing a one-line summary of a US surgeon general's report, which says 'Smoking is damn bad for you', he's convinced he's going to get fired. Instead, his boss, Paul Trainer, makes him the company's spokesman. Trevor shocks the industry when he appears on television to admit that cigarettes are terrible for health. But chaos reigns when all the cigarette factories shut down. It becomes clear that banning smoking causes more problems than it solves.
