Book: The Appeal

A Mississippi jury returns a $41-million verdict against a chemical company accused of dumping carcinogenic waste into a small town’s water supply. The company’s ruthless billionaire CEO is thwarted and the good guys (a courageous young woman who lost her husband and child and her two lawyers who’ve gone half a million dollars in debt preparing her case) receives its just reward.
