Protagonist in Self Published Book Basis for Major Hollywood Movie, The Informant

Mark Whitacre, the main character in Floyd Perry’s self-published book, is the focus of the latest Hollywood movie, The Informant.

Bloomington, IN, September 30, 2009 --( Mark Whitacre Against All Odds by author Floyd Perry is the gripping story of Mark Whitacre, a top-level corporate executive who becomes an informant for the Federal Bureau of Investigations. He reveals his company’s multinational conspiracy of price fixing. Whitcare has then been known as the highest-ranking executive-turned-whistleblower in the entire history of the United States of America.

During the investigation, Whitacre admitted to having been involved with embezzling funds and receiving corporate kickbacks, which sent him to almost a decade in prison.

After having been freed from prison, Mark Whitacre revealed his reflections and realizations to Perry and the result became this self-published book, where Whitcare declares that spiritual wealth matters far more than material wealth and to be truthful at all times. His story provides spiritual boost that can be applied in everyday life.

Mark Whitacre’s story became the basis for the screenplay of the latest Hollywood motion picture, The Informant, starring Matt Damon. It is the latest movie under the direction of Steven Soderbergh, who is also known for the films Che, Erin Brockovich, Ocean’s Eleven, Traffic and Sex, Lies and Videotape.

Mark Whitacre Against All Odds is published by Xlibris.
