Publisher's Summary

In The Informant, award-winning investigative reporter and New York Times best-selling 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.

What the Critics Say

"The Informant is superb reporting in the service of a great story, one with the drama and suspense of a Le Carré novel. Set squarely in the American heartland, delving into the inner sanctum of a global corporation, it explores the shifting boundaries of truth and deception, loyalty and betrayal. It is a remarkable achievement." (James B. Stewart, author of Den of Thieves)

Great Story - Fine Abridgment

First, I avoid abridged audio books. They more often than not listen like "cut and paste." This is not the case with this edition of The Informant. It is well written, a fine abridgment, and Arthur Morey is up to his usual performance.

Otherwise, this is the story of a ADM "Supermarket to the World" employee who blows the wistle on price fixing. It is informative, exciting, and a unfortunate story of one man's experience.

It is well worth the listener's time.
