What happens when a former loan officer-yet another victim of the nationwide mortgage crisis-rejects materialism and moves to a one-room cabin in the woods? In the case of H.T. McMullen, the 42-year old hero of Naked and Hungry, he finds his pristine wilderness tainted by dangerous pollutants. And when he dares to complain, he becomes the target of a deadly game of intimidation by the high-powered villains. The arrival of Jessica Beane, the sexy environmentalist called to investigate the pollution, sets in motion a series of comic adventures and increasingly professional attempts to permanently silence H.T. Their budding passion ignites after Jessica reveals a dangerous secret that inextricably links them both to the larger world of hazard-waste trafficking and lands them into the custody of an ambitious young FBI agent. Together, they hatch a risky plot that eventually brings the culprits to justice and redeems H.T.'s good name in the eyes of his family and friends.
