LEXINGTON, Ky., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- If you think you're having a bad day, think again. It could get a lot worse.
James Cantrill in CODE 936 has the day from hell when he's unexpectedly fired. But hell gets hotter -- he's kidnapped, hustled onto a corporate jet, and smuggled to Puerto Rico where a brutal global conspiracy involving CODE 936, the obscure IRS tax code benefitting hundreds of manufacturers in Puerto Rico, unfolds. What James knows may get him killed.
Author Bill Kimbrell of Lexington, Kentucky takes his extensive knowledge of the medical industry and crafts a riveting thriller titled CODE 936. All too plausible, this story creates an exhilarating tense, action-packed international quest for truth, justice and exoneration.
CODE 936 focuses on James Cantrill, hard-working surgical equipment businessman, family man, the guy next door. His life turns upside down when he discovers a conspiracy inside his company to cover up problems with a total hip replacement device that's in hundreds of people.
Out of her mind with worry, Trish, his wife, struggles to find him. She, his daughters, lawyer, and the FBI search frantically for him while trying to penetrate this airtight cover-up. They soon learn that a number of ruthless people will go to any length to make sure James is never found and the truth is never revealed.
