About the Author

Physician, lawyer, scholar, and longtime Washington insider Dr. Peter Budetti was recruited by President Obama's Administration to modernize the government's antifraud efforts in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. As he oversaw the development of innovative systems using advanced technology to detect and prevent fraud, Dr. Budetti became known as the Healthcare Antifraud Czar. Dr. Budetti is Of Counsel to Phillips and Cohen, LLP, the nation's most successful law firm representing whistleblowers. Prior to his years at CMS, Dr. Budetti held senior positions in government and academe. He is the author of numerous articles published in medical and public health journals as well as three novels: Deadly Bargain, Hemorrhage, and Resuscitated. Dr. Budetti received his undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame, his medical degree from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and his law degree from the University of California Berkeley Law (Boalt Hall). He trained and was board-certified in pediatrics and is a member of the California and District of Columbia Bars. He is married, has two grown children, seven grandchildren, and a Pekingese-mix doggy. Dr. Budetti and his wife live in Kansas City, Missouri, and spend as much time as possible at their lakehouse in Arkansas.


"Who would have thought a behind the scenes story of one of the world's largest government bureaucracies could be so exciting? The book is a real page turner about Russian corruption and interference in our government... It is a fictional account but seems so real given current events."

"Cracking fun read on a fascinating subject, and geopolitically salient to boot."

"A real page-turner and fun to read. Maybe more truth than we want to believe, given the current political reality."

"This author knows from experience what he is writing about"

"The NY Times article about Michael Cohen's ... involvement with Russian mobster related fraudulent injury and insurance scams, just a part of his extensive network of shady dealings, reads like a chapter from your book."

"Very entertaining and suspenseful! It was easy to follow and hard to put down!"

"A good read and thought-provoking! Russians in our government...hmmm"
