Supermarkets and celebrity chefs in the UK are under attack from a militant group. The whole fabric of the world in which they operate is being forced towards collapse. London is gripped by fear as the militant group attacks indiscriminately. Can the celebrity chefs still inspire our culinary dreams as the attacks intensify before their empires crumble? Inspector Borage is tasked with apprehending the group under in- creasing media pressure. With all the resources of the Metropolitan police available to him he seems to be thwarted at every turn. The militant group have passion and desire to expose the daily manipulation forced upon su- permarket customers. Will their efforts be wasted as the public deem them terrorists, or see them as rebels to the cause? It is a trial by media, and the jury is still out. Supermarkets - the heart and soul of our society - are being asked to defend their actions. This is a book of power, greed, corruption, love and maybe - if you are lucky - the odd lamb cutlet. The British public will never look at supermarkets in the same way again. about the author Derek de Plunge works in business development for a technical mining consultancy in Asia. Prior to that he travelled the world for over twelve years running events for the pub- lishing industry. During that time he spent countless hours in airports, planes, hotel rooms and many small independent coffee shops all over our wonderful planet. The outcome of these long hours away is this book. It was written initially to put in writing his anger at the way small high street food shops have slowly been eradicated from our communities. Then it became an enjoyable and amusing way to spend the endless weekends away in foreign countries. It was also a way to escape the loneliness of business travel. Mind you when you have read part - if not all - of the book you may have wished that the author had really escaped and had never come back to give his manuscript to the publisher. Apart from writing, the author is an ultra-runner and has competed in many 100km, 160km and 333km nonstop races around the world. He has a love of food and will always try to eat the local fare wherever he is passing through or living. The author has written this book under a pseudonym as he did not want to be banned from UK supermarkets and therefore cutting off his ability to eat. But he now lives in Asia but liked the idea anyway.
