Description


"Your perfect beach book has arrived. With Poisoned, Jeff Benedict manages to deliver the full literary experience of a medico-legal thriller in a work of nonfiction that, fortuitously enough, could not be more relevant to recent headlines."--The New York Times

In this riveting work of narrative nonfiction, award-winning journalist and best-selling author Jeff Benedict chronicles the events surrounding the biggest food-poisoning epidemic in US history and how this unprecedented crisis sparked public awareness about unsanitary practices in the fast food industry. Poisoned draws on access to confidential documents and exclusive interviews with the real-life characters at the center of the drama.

Jeff Benedict is considered one of America's top nonfiction writers. He is the author of nine books including bestsellers Little Pink House, Without Reservation, and Pros and Cons. His reporting has been the basis of feature segments on 60 Minutes, ABC's 20/20, Dateline NBC, HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, and the Discovery Channel. He is a contributor to Sports Illustrated and the Deseret News, and his articles have been published in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, and the Hartford Courant. He has a law degree and is a distinguished professor of English at Southern Virginia University.
