When John Schilling, an unassuming midlevel accountant, joined Columbia Healthcare Corporation -- the nation's fastest growing and revolutionary network of public hospitals -- it seemed like the start of an exciting new career with great advancement and earnings potential. He never expected to become a catalyst for the series of "whistleblower" lawsuits that ripped through the healthcare industry in the late 1990s In Undercover, John Schilling tells the story of his harrowing journey from ordinary citizen and loyal employee to covert FBI informant and top witness for the Justice Department in the largest criminal healthcare fraud case in U.S. history. It began when he stumbled upon evidence-- a $3.5 million accounting "error"--of his company's routine practice of defrauding Medicare. When pressured to comply with stealing from taxpayers, Schilling knew he had to speak up for what he believed was right, regardless of the cost to his job, his reputation, and his family. His courageous choice would consume the next seven years of his life, leading to more drama, angst, turmoil, and money than he could have imagined. Ultimately, Schilling's moral conviction and a little known law, the False Claims Act, paid off by forcing the formidable healthcare conglomerate of Columbia/HCA to pay back $1.7 billion to the federal government. Revealing the personal side of a thankless role, Undercover is a gripping and inspiring account of a long, hard, life-- changing quest for justice. ADVANCE PRAISE FOR UNDERCOVER "Undercover crackles with authenticity as it recounts in a lively, readable style how a man on the inside risked everything and blew the whistle on a giant healthcare company that was systematically looting the Medicare program out of billions. A good read for anyone, but a must-read for someone who may contemplate taking the same path as John Schilling" -- John R. Phillips, "The nation's premier whistleblowing attorney" according to the The Wall Street Journal and the National Law Journal "John Schilling's book is a must-read for whistleblowers. He shows you how hard it can be, yet also shows you how to prevail. Best of all, John shows you how to be a good citizen" -- Jim Moorman, past President, Taxpayers Against Fraud

Sie sind die Männer im Schatten, niemand kommt so dicht ans Verbrechen heran wie sie. Eigentlich wollte sich der Schauspieler Marek Erhardt bei den Zivilfahndern in Hamburg-Billstedt nur auf eine Rolle vorbereiten. Doch dann begleitete er die Undercover-Polizisten zwei Jahre lang. Für dieses Buch blickte er in die dunkelsten Winkel unserer Gesellschaft, in die Welt von Drogendealern, Jugendgangs, Mördern. Er lag mit den Fahndern auf der Jagd nach einem Serienbrandstifter im Gebüsch, stürmte mit ihnen die Wohnungen von Gewaltverbrechern und erlebte tragische, anrührende wie skurrile Geschichten in einem der härtesten Viertel Deutschlands.

UNDERCOVER is the story of an undercover detective working to infiltrate the Australian drug scene. Damian Marrett's penetrating yet darkly comic insights and astonishing candour provides the real story behind bringing down the Griffith Mafia. After reluctantly joining the Victorian Police in 1986, Damian Marrett was handpicked four years later to work in a covert capacity for the Drug Squad. Marrett was so exceptionally talented that he was responsible for some of the biggest drug busts in Australian law enforcement history. the young detective is famously known for infiltrating the seemingly impenetrable Griffith Mafia, in an operation codenamed Afghan which is still regarded as Australia's most complex covert sting operation. Compelled to stay in character for long periods of time over the nine month operation, Marrett became the knockabout drug dealer Ben Gleeson. Operation Afghan concluded in a tense stand-off in country NSW where ten mafia gangsters were arrested on 36 separate drugs and firearms charges. the trial followed and eight were sentenced to 41 years of combined jail time. true crime addicts will find Marrett's account of his six years as an undercover agent organising dangerous stings in the criminal underworld a must-read.

North Korea is like no other tyranny on earth. It is Orwell’s 1984 made reality. The regime controls the flow of information to its citizens, pouring relentless propaganda through omnipresent loud speakers. Free speech is an illusion: one word out of line and the gulag awaits. State spies are everywhere, ready to punish disloyalty and the slightest sign of discontent. You must bow to Kim Il Sung, the Eternal Leader and to his son, Generalissimo Kim Jong Il. Worship the dead and then hail the living, the Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un. North Koreans are told their home is the greatest nation on earth. Big Brother is always watching. Posing as a university professor, award-winning BBC journalist John Sweeney travelled undercover to gain unprecedented access to the world’s most secret state. Drawing on his own experiences and his extensive interviews with defectors and other key witnesses, North Korea Undercover pulls back the curtain, providing a rare insight into life there today, examining the country’s troubled history and addressing important questions about its uncertain future. Sweeney’s highly engaging, authoritative account illuminates the dark side of the Hermit Kingdom and challenges the West’s perception of this paranoid nationalist state.
