The Informant is Mark Whitacre, a senior executive with America's most powerful food giant, who put his career and his family's safety at risk to become a confidential government witness. Using Whitacre's secret recordings and a team of agents, the FBI uncovered the corporation's scheme to steal millions of dollars from its own customers. But as the FBI closed in on their target, they suddenly realized that Whitacre wasn't quite playing the game they'd thought ... This is the gripping account of how a corporate golden boy became an FBI mole and went on to double-cross both the authorities and his employers in one of the most extraordinary cases of global corporate corruption of the last thirty years.

Review:

National Bestseller "Ranks with "A Civil Action" as one of the best nonfiction books of the last decade."--"The" "New York Times Book Review" "The most riveting tale of recent years... a fast-paced race-car of a book."--Salon.com "Reads like an Ed McBain crime novel. I knew how the story ended, but I still couldn't put the book down."--"The New York Times" "Gripping...A remarkable work and a compelling read....The intensity of reportage seems at times almost superhuman." --"Newsday" "One of the most compelling business narratives since "Barbarians at the Gate,"" --"BusinessWeek ""I guarantee it'll keep you reading late into the night." --Jonathan Harr, "A Civil Action """The Informant" is superb reporting in the service of a great story, one with the drama and suspense of a Le Carre novel." --James B. Stewart, "Den of Thieves" and "Blind Eye"
