Cluster of Lies
This is my first introduction to author, Samuel Marquis' work. As a fellow Coloradoan; I had to try this author's work out. I am only about 3 1/2 hours away from Denver. So, I enjoyed the different location references in this book. Right away I knew I liked Mr. Marquis from this sentence " Below on the ice, the first game of the semi-final Stanley Cup series between the Colorado Avalanche and the hated Detroit Red Wings was in full swing." I am a Avalanche fan and anyone who is a true fan can relate to the hatred between the Avalanche and the Red Wings.
While I have not read the first book I do like Joe Higheagle. He is intelligent and fights hard for the truth. Knowing that the author wrote this book with first hand experience regarding a cancer cluster case did add another layer of intrigue to the story as a whole. For the most part I found this to be a quick read. Although, there were a few times where it did lag some for me but luckily not for too long. I do agree with another reader that Joe is like the male version of Erin Brockovich.
