JP TruDoc enters the world of fiction with the release of “Bite the Hand That Feeds You” (published by Archway Publishing). This novel, written from a physician’s point of view, explores a dark corner of the American justice system and the world of unscrupulous government contractors, lawyers and judicial miscreants.

“I wrote a fictionalized exciting story about my firsthand experiences in battling for environmental justice for tens of thousands of displaced persons after Hurricane Katrina,” TruDoc describes. “This vulnerable group of people were relocated into Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) trailers that were contaminated with toxic formaldehyde emanating from uncured plywood glue outgassed into their living space.”

The story takes readers into the fictionalized inner sanctum of litigation where toxic tort plaintiffs and defendants collide, battling for billions. It tells the story of one 13-year-old boy and his family who had to endure the tragedy of a debilitating exposure. Formaldehyde takes its toll on lungs, skin and life itself. After Hurricane Katrina has blown away their hopes and dreams, the injured seek justice while the system laughs in their faces.

Dr. Tristan P. Baines, engineer, physician, survivalist and the expert for Katrina plaintiffs, finds himself targeted by the violent rogue organization, The Resistance that is determined to stop his efforts to obtain justice for this little boy, along with other plaintiffs. As the story unfolds, readers embark on a dramatized quest for environmental justice in the midst of chaos and mortal danger within a toxic tort litigation system running amok.

“Bite the Hand That Feeds You” is a cautionary tale warning persons in need that what is offered free may not be without liability and risk. It is for general readers, but is formulated deliberately to challenge those who are interested in the science of depicted exposures and injuries.
