30 Apr Truth IS Stranger Than Fiction–and This Book Proves It – A review by M. Terry Walin
W. Terry Walin reviews The Devil Inside the Beltway Here!
I started Mike Daughtery’s well-told story and with each chapter my disbelief grew. Yes this book is a nonfiction true story about the FTC overreach and interference with his company LabMD, a cancer detection laboratory in Atlanta, Georgia.
The story is a page-turner and reads like a novel but is factual and true and contains extensive end notes and documentation to prove their facts. I loved the seasoned and experienced advice for readers which is woven into the storytelling such as, “If you’re hiring a lawyer, beware. Their engagement letters are one-sided contracts in which another lawyer deals with your lawyer (ironic). The games and pressures their managing partners place on them at your expense (it’s all about the money) is kept from you; silence is their favorite noun. Most won’t be held accountable. Remember, when seeking justice, the web of confusion you must enter can be perilous. Take your time, do your homework, educate yourself.” (page 170)
I found the story gripping and I had to finish the last page to see how it ended.
I highly recommend this book. It’s a compelling read.
