SUMMARY

At first glance, the events in this book may seem equal parts science fiction and legal thriller. Unfortunately, they are not. This is a true story of blinding greed, cruel deceit, unfortunate circumstance, and powerful human tragedy. It has villains and heroes, but it does not yet have a good ending. Something's wrong in Libby, Montana. Residents are dying at a rate sixty times higher than the national average from a battery of insidious diseases, and they will continue to suffer for decades to come. The cause: a so-called miracle mineral that generations of families felt thankful for, until they discovered that the "miracle" was too good to be true-- and that the town's disturbing mortality rate was hardly an accident. The scope of the treachery goes far beyond Libby. Even before the dust had settled following the September 11 terrorist attacks, those who live and work in lower Manhattan were voicing well-founded concerns about air quality around Ground Zero. Tests conducted at the site yielded conflicting results-- and possibly evidence of a continuing corporate and governmental cover-up that mirrors a pattern of deception threatening not only the physical health of millions of Americans but the financial stability of our economy. "There is no safe level of asbestos."--Environmental Protection AgencyBowker, Michael is the author of 'Fatal Deception The Untold Story of Asbestos Why It Is Still Legal and Still Killing Us' with ISBN 9781579546847 and ISBN 1579546846.
