      Wow. Where to begin? Buemi's persistence in tracking down the source(s) stuck with me the entire time. Being a double agent for years and posing as a genuine buyer requires a lot from a person.

      While we don't hear about fentanyl and opiod OD's as frequently as we did a few years ago, this article highlights the challenges of investigating and preventing the epidemic. It also highlights the shady world of secretarial companies in Hong Kong. I know it isn't only a Hong Kong problem, but the fact that it is so openly acknowledged as a standard business practice is concerning in one of the world's largest financial centers.
