A harrowing tale of widespread illegal payments and kickbacks that cost Taxpayers Billions and cost Chris Riedel tremendous personal sacrifice. His dogged & courageous pursuit of the perpetrators for himself, his Industry, the Taxpayers and Other Whistleblowers has Earned Him the Title of "Fraud Fighter".
Blood Money: One Man's Bare-Knuckle Fight to Protect Taxpayers from Medical Lab Fraud - is the true legal thriller of a terrifying David vs. Goliath fight against massive healthcare fraud brought by a brave Whistleblower, at tremendous personal sacrifice and cost over many years.
Chris Riedel never saw himself as a crusader. He lived the Silicon Valley dream, founding his first company at 24, then starting two others while he was still a young man. The first two companies revolutionized how bacterial infections were diagnosed and treated, saving hundreds of thousands of lives around the world. He retired early to enjoy raising his young sons with his wife Marcia.
Aware of the diminishing number of medical labs in Northern California, Marcia encouraged them to return to the business and they started Meris Laboratories, and that's where the trouble began. In the decade since they left the business, two major behemoths, Quest and LabCorp, had assumed dominance in the industry, euphemistically referred to as the "Blood Brothers." The Fight was On!
