Supply Chain
 

A Corporate Thriller

Authored by Tom Spears
Edition: 1

This novel reintroduces the character of JC "Disco" Martin, who made his first appearance in the novel INCENTIVIZE.

In this story, JC Martin has retired from the Navy, and taken a job with a socially responsible fashion company named Dam Yankee. His position with the firm, as the supplier auditor, is considered critical to the business as their reputation revolves around doing good works in the poorest nations of the world.
Martin's first field assignment is to travel to Honduras and audit a firm there known as Moda Cortez, a shirt manufacturer. A successful audit is critical to Martin's boss, the ambitious Emma Maddox, as the company's entire fall line is to be placed with Moda Cortez.
When Martin arrives in Honduras, he immediately realizes there are problems with the supplier, noting there is evidence that Moda Cortez and their boss Juan Alonzo, are engaged in using child labor to make their products.
Against the orders of Maddox, Martin digs into the employment circumstances surrounding Moda Cortez, discovering that Alonzo and his boss, Italo Cortez, have their fingers in a human trafficking Supply Chain that starts in Honduras and leads North.
