Overview

This is a simple story. It begins with an immigrant grocer selling vegetables from a pushcart and ends in a court case with two billion dollars at risk. Two brothers, sons of the founder, inherit equal shares of a burgeoning food chain. One dies, and his widow, suspecting that she is being short-changed from profits earned, sues to recover.

Now it becomes complicated. The author, an insider with over thirty years working in the food industry, spins a yarn of a twisting, turning labyrinth that features a love tryst, intrigue, betrayal, and greed. The characters and dialogue are real, authentic, and they draw you from the printed page into the middle of this fast-moving action.

Russell Riley is the highest-ranking non-family member of this company and it’s his job to protect and grow the business while the two families duke it out in court. But even he can’t stay entirely above the fray because he owns stock that could provide the swing vote for control.

If you are in the mood for an insider’s take on a nasty and vitriolic family food fight that ended in a celebrated court case, Blood Feud is it.

A richly-detailed analysis of the meltdown of a large family business, as seen through the eyes of a long-term employee. The characters are very well portrayed, and it is easy to align with the main narrator. The story itself is detailed and exciting, and the ending is kept in doubt right to the very end. It is an excellent study of how human nature can destroy the greatest of enterprises and the closest of families. I found it a little extreme that every woman in the story is beyond the 99th percentile beautiful, and from the description mostly clones of each other. All the rest of the characters were identifiable as real people, and the presentation of human nature at both its best and worst was very satisfying. I enjoyed the book and recommend it for a pleasant read.
