Fraccidental Death – An Eco-Thriller
What if it’s not safe to turn on the tap? When grad student Summer Cassidy arrives in West Virginia to test water quality near fracking sites, she confronts fouled wells, puzzling illnesses, and cyberespionage.
The community splits into two camps, each with high stakes: jobs that feed families and millions in investments versus clean water and the good health it makes possible. Gut-wrenching betrayals, explosions, and murder ignite the pages of this fast-paced mystery.
Surrounded by chaos and deceit, can Summer track the source of contaminants before more people get sick—or even die—simply by turning on their taps?
