For a first novel, this book is extremely well-written with very well-defined characters. Even though, as the author points out in his final comments, this is complete fiction, it still describes the mind-set of corporate upper echelon individuals in a very incisive way. He describes the behavior and attitudes of the higher-ups in the company where his protagonist is employed with absolutely accuracy in the “up or out” corporate environment.
There is well-written, realistic action and a great build-up to the final denouement. The characters have the attributes and foibles of actual people – no “Mary Sues” in sight.
Even though this is a work of fiction, there is a great deal of actual information contained in the book about how our national food supply is treated by the corporations that provide it and the cutthroat atmosphere of competition between huge, multi-national entities.
I recommend FAT PROFITS as a good and intense thriller that will actually inform the reader while keeping them entertained with edge-of-your-seat action right up until the very end!
I will post this review on Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Library Thing when the book is available for purchase since I don’t believe I can post a review of a book that is not for sale. I will also publish this review on my blog at https://museofhellreviews.wordpress.com
