A sizzling debut thriller that exposes the seamy and unscrupulous world of health care fraud, Unbridled Greed features protagonist Bryan Hampton, a longtime Department of Justice investigator.
A tough, tenacious DOJ investigator, Bryan Hampton is hot on the trail of Dr. Hugh Patterson, a greedy and calculating Illinois physician suspected of insurance fraud. But when this major medical fraud investigation is suddenly and shockingly derailed by politics, greed, and bribes, Hampton decides he's had enough of Chicago's dirty politics and cronyism—let alone fighting corruption on both sides—and transfers to Las Vegas.
Now teamed with Paul Dixon, a former college classmate and newly appointed U.S. Attorney for the Nevada District, Hampton and Dixon unite with a common goal: aggressively fighting the health care fraud and abuse that victimizes countless patients and robs every American household of thousands of dollars each year. Joining forces with private sector groups that have sophisticated resources at their disposal, Dixon, Hampton and their team uncover a massive fraud scheme operating beneath the bright lights of Sin City.
Infiltrating this highly organized and highly dangerous band of fraudsters will mean probing a ruthless and deadly group who will stop at nothing—violence, torture, and even murder—to feed the greed that fuels this massive scam.
In the midst of his methodical and meticulous investigation, Hampton is swept up in a burgeoning attraction between he and a beautiful young coworker, Charlie Cruz. But as the investigation proceeds, it becomes clear that someone on the inside might be playing both sides. No one can be trusted, and as the danger escalates, Hampton will soon realize the inherent perils of fighting this good fight. This could be the fight of his life—or if he’s not careful, it might just be the fight for his life.
The love of money is the root of all evil—and there are evil forces pulling the strings in this massive fraud operation….
With its seemingly ripped-from-the-headlines plot, true-to-life characters, and stunning insider details, Unbridled Greed sizzles from first page to last. Author Barry Johnson, a leading and sought after expert in the field of health care fraud prevention, delivers a pulse-racing thriller that will leave readers wondering where fact ends and fiction begins.
