Description

Is the food we eat safe? Andrew Hastings thought so. But after watching several of his co-workers die, he's not sure of anything anymore.

Desparate to climb the corporate ladder, Andrew works tirelessly to launch B-Lean, International Food & Milling's revolutionary, new weight-loss product. But when a colleague leaves him a cryptic voicemail just minutes before her tragic death, Andrew starts asking questions that lead him down a deadly trail of corporate deceit. As the death toll rises, Andrew realizes he's the next target, and he goes on the run to uncover the truth and save his family.

Showcasing an extraordinary blend of action and suspense with an insider's firsthand expertise of the food industry, Bruce Bradley's debut novel is a heart-pounding thrill ride reminiscent of Michael Crichton's finest work. Wrapped in a story of corporate and political misdeeds that's all too common in today's headlines, Fat Profits will have you glued to your seat until the very last page.
