An EX LIBRARY copy complete with protective cover and in VERY GOOD condition. May have some library identification marks/stamps. This book is in VERY GOOD overall condition, with only minor signs of previous ownership.
I read the first chapter of this book online and was immediately hooked. I knew I had to order this book. The opening situation was so horrible and gross that I had to know who would do such a thing. It is ironic that a similar company is lobbying to open a facility in my hometown and meeting with some objection from the neighborhood where it would be located. I love Alex Kava's writing, except for the vulgar language, and was not disappointed with this book.
Publishers Weekly, 2007-04-09 Bestseller Kava takes a break from her Maggie O'Dell FBI profiler series (A Necessary Evil, etc.) with a fine topical thriller involving terrorism, government coverups and toxic waste. Sabrina Galloway, a young Chicago professor, becomes a hands-on scientist in Florida with EcoEnergy, a company that specializes in TCP--a process that converts refuse and other waste material into oil. EcoEnergy's CEO is angling for a $140 million military government contract, but after Sabrina's boss mysteriously disappears and Sabrina discovers a reactor processing something it shouldn't, her life becomes as endangered as Florida's waterways. She hits the road in a '47 Studebaker with Miss Sadie, a gutsy 81-year-old African-American neighbor, to find help, while Middle Eastern terrorists plot a nasty surprise for an upcoming energy summit. Engaging supporting characters include Leon, a funky hit man losing his touch but not his heart, and covert operative Natalie Richards, "a black Emma Peel." Kava lightens the seriousness with some deft touches of humor. Genre fans weary of serial-killer fare will find this a refreshing read. (June) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
