The Poisoning Must End
Toxic waste at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation has been poisoning the environment, human beings, and wildlife for more than six decades. When her brother dies a horrible death at Hanford, Casey Long, a kayaker and windsurfer by day and bartender by night in the Columbia River Gorge, Oregon/Washington, swears to put an end to the upriver contamination. But, how can she possibly take on the entrenched fortress of a facility?
After she confides in Little Bear, a bitter Native American fisherman, they contrive a dangerous plan. Joined by a peculiar mishmash of collaborators, they risk everything to save the environment and achieve justice for all injured parties, past and present.

I found this to be a very quick read. Casey is who did it for me. It was because of her determination that I was just as determined to get justice for her brother. She is a woman on a mission. Once she teamed up with Little Bear, they were a force to be reckoned with. In addition, that the pacing of this story was really good. There was not a dull moment to be found.
As soon as I started reading this book, I was hooked. The opening scene was definitely an attention grabber. Although, for some reason I instantly thought of the one scene from Total Recall starring Arnold Schwarzenegger where he gets exposed to the air on Mars. Ok, so maybe the beginning scene is not a gruesome, but you get the picture. Overall, a really good read. I would read another book by this author.
