By Paul Adam


Investigative reporter Joe Verdi has never given much thought to how supermarkets operate. Then a murder inquiry takes him undercover into the heart of Britain’s agri-business and he discovers the true cost of our cut-price food. In London, a newly-arrived Kurdish immigrant is brutally murdered by Turkish people-traffickers. The dead man’s wife, Irena, the key witness to the killing, flees to East Anglia where she disappears into the murky world of gangmasters and illegal foreign workers. Then three people contract typhoid and the only link between them seems to be the supermarket chain where they bought their food.
