About this title

Synopsis:

The Louisiana Governor is assassinated. A hazardous waste disposal company wants to build the largest facility in the world - they need a permit. The Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality is beholden to Rubin Environmental. But a minority owner wants a man on the inside of the DEQ - the new Governor appoints the Director of Waste Services to approve the permit. Peter LeBlanc is the perfect wedge between the smallest crack. It doesn't take him long to find evidence of an explosion to the incinerator, a carcinogen-laced leak in the old landfill, and a clever murder of a slack-jawed employee who was ready to talk. Lawyers and politicians realize that the facility is located near an old plantation with a minority-dominated zip code - 'environmental racism' is born. The company's merger with an international waste conglomerate suddenly stalls and the billion-dollar venture is in jeopardy. Then, the FBI gets involved. Desperation sets in.

From the Publisher:

Michael Martinez takes the reader on a whirlwind tour of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth. His expertise on the works of Tolkien have earned him world-wide recognition. Visualizing Middle-earth is a fascinating examination of Tolkien's enchanted Middle-earth. The author treats the history of the mythical past as if it really happened.
