Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

[National Bestseller]

Soon to be a major motion picture from Warner Bros., starring Matt Damon.

In The Informant, award-winning investigative reporter and New York Times bestselling author Kurt Eichenwald tells the outrageously true story of greed, corruption, and conspiracy that left the FBI and Justice Department counting on the cooperation of one man. Now headed for the silver screen, the film adaptation of The Informant is directed by Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh, with Matt Damon set to portray Mark Whitacre, the executive who wore a wire for the FBI as they tried to bring down corporate giant Archer Daniels Midland—but whose dark secrets and hidden agenda threatened to unravel one of the largest price-fixing cases in history.

“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 couldnt put the book down.”

—New York Times

“Gripping…A remarkable work and a compelling read...The intensity of reportage seems at times almost superhuman.” —Newsday
