Book News: Fraccidental Death by Donna Meredith

An eco-thriller that explores one of the hot-button issues of our times . . .

by Donna Meredith

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? 

FRACCIDENTAL DEATH continues the adventures of hydrogeologist Summer Cassidy that began in the award-winning  thriller WET WORK.

What reviewers are saying:

“If you enjoy a good mystery with carefully developed characters and a social conscience, this is your book.”
—Southern Literary Review (reviewed by Pat Spears, author of Dream Catcher and It’s Not Like I Knew Her)

“If you’re a reader who’s tuned into the political debate over the environment, a younger adult fascinated by the power of science to expose truths hidden in the world, or just looking for a rollickingly good thriller . . . dig into this fun, fast 280-page whodunit.”
— the Tallahassee Democrat (reviewed by Dr. Penny J. Gilmer, Nancy Marcus Professor Emerita of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Florida State University)
