There’s More Than One Kind of Poison in This Town People are sick and dying. Rumors are swirling. Some claim chemicals leaking from a manufacturing plant are causing the cancer that’s crippling people on the poor side of Trenton City, Ohio. Yet nothing at the plant appears amiss. The problem remains a mystery until reporter Jack Crittendon’s long-time mechanic falls ill and he investigates.
Soon Jack becomes engulfed in a smokescreen of lies, setups, greed, and scandal. The deeper he digs, the more toxic the corruption he uncovers. As he faces off with the big-time players behind the scenes and tries to beat the clock before more people die, he realizes the chillingly unthinkable—he knows too much.
Creston Mapes is good storyteller. In this suspenseful tale of knowing too much about an illegal activity Jack Crittendon's life is in danger and so are the lives of many others living in the town of Trenton City, OH. The town is being poisoned and Jack is determined to expose the guilty. A great read! I'm looking forward to more from this author.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
