** spoiler alert ** My first non-library book in a while. ($1.99 at Goodwill!) Gripping story, both the legal and the personal aspects. The author draws rich portraits of the players, making even the "villains" into interesting and sometimes sympathetic characters. I found the ending almost unbearably depressing, which I guess is the way life actually works. Only the smackdown by the EPA redeemed the flameout of the lawsuit.
