Product Description

After decades of turning out plutonium for the arms race, the Hanford Nuclear Facility has long been shuttered, though its deadly legacy cannot be fully contained. The men who guard the facility from sabotage or monitor its buildings for radiation leaks are told the risks are under control. They believe it, until the worst happens: a thunderous explosion in the dead of night.

Two workers, lifer Poppy Martin and new hire Kieran Mullaney, believe themselves lucky to survive the blast. But as the debris is cleared, they discover their safety is not assured. Dead ends and closed doors halt their efforts to discover what really happened--and what radiation may have poisoned them. When stalling and threats force them into the hands of experienced trial lawyer Ryan Hart, they learn that theirs is no ordinary lawsuit. There is something still hidden in the desert of eastern Washington, and someone is willing to go to extreme lengths to make sure it never sees the light of day.

Publisher's Description

When a Warning Siren Screams in the Desert Night,
the Worst Has Happened

After turning out plutonium for the Cold War, the shuttered Hanford Nuclear Facility's poisoned buildings may be a bigger risk than ever. The men who guard the facility from sabotage or monitor its buildings are told the dangers are under control. But then the worst happens--a thunderous explosion in the dead of night.

Kieran Mullaney survived the blast, but when threats and silence meet his attempts to discover what really happened, he reconnects with an old friend--inexperienced lawyer Emily Hart. Convinced Hanford is hiding something, they also realize their case is sunk without more help.

Emily's estranged father, Ryan, has the courtroom experience they need, but he's grown jaded and weary of the profession. Still, it's a chance to rebuild ties to Emily, and the deeper he digs, the stranger--and more dangerous--the case gets.

    Kieren becomes convinced that he's been dosed with radiation after an explosion at the nuclear facility where he worked. Secrets, unanswered questions, and a missing employee point to a cover up.

    As Kieren and his lawyer friend Emily seek the truth, things get increasingly dangerous.

    A legal thriller, fast-paced and well-written, Critical Reaction will keep you turning the pages and rooting for justice.

    Despite the company's denial, the suspicious activities following the "incident," lead some to believe that something sinister is going on. To discover the truth, you'll have to read Critical Reaction for yourself!

    I enjoyed this book. If you enjoy suspense and the thrill of the hunt for truth, I believe you'll enjoy this book as well.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House with the expectation of an unbiased review.

    CRITICAL REACTION

    BY : TODD M. JOHNSON

    WHEN A WARNING SIREN (FINALLY) SCREAMS IN THE DESERT NIGHT, THE WORST HAS HAPPENED.

    Atfer turning out plutonium for the cold war, the shuttered Hanford Nuclear Facility's poisoned buildings may be a bigger risk than ever. the men who guard the facility from sabatage or monitor its buildings are told the dangers are under control. But are they really? Then the worst happens - a thunderous explosion in the dead of night. Kieran Mullaney survived the blast, but when threats and silence meet his attemps to discover what really happened, he reconnects with an old friend - inexperienced lawyer Emily Hart. Convinced Hanford is hiding something, they also realize the case is sunk without more help. Emily's estranged father, Ryan, has the courtroom experience they need, but he's grown jaded and weary of the profession. Still, it's a chance to rebuild ties to Emily, and the deeper he digs, the stranger - and more dangerous - the case gets.

    This is the first of Todd M. Johnson's books I've ever read and also the first legal thriller I've read but I didn't really like it. Most of the book was boring, I think it was because I never really connected with the characters. It was told more from the perspective of Emily's father than Kieran or Emily and I couldn't identify with him very much. I wish they would've been more suspense, and more development to the romance. There wasn't much to the spiritual aspect either, other than the mention of praying. One thing I did like in the book was a quote from Emily's mother, she said "never sue a teacher, or a farmer. and only take on the fights truly worth fighting," maybe someone who likes lawyer stuff etc would enjoy this book. But I just couldn't seem to get into it.

    What a page turner! The book started out with a bang - literally - and I was fearful it might get a little slow going during the trial scenes. However, this book was exciting from beginning to end!

    I typically read historical romance novels, so this book was a new genre for me. This book is categorized as a legal thriller, so I was not sure how I would like it. It took a few chapters for me to get into it, but I did and I really enjoyed it. The plot was really interesting. We were given information from both sides in the story (Kieran and Hanford), but at the same there was enough mystery where I would want to keep on reading to find out what would happen next. I was glad that as the reader we weren't completely in the dark, but we were able to see what was going on through other character's perspectives. Even though this was not a romance novel, there was a small love story intertwined with the main plot, which I enjoyed. This story also had depth to it, dealing with the different personal relationships the characters had with each other. It was more than just the legal matters. The only negative I had was that there were many characters being introduced in the beginning. There would be a chapter about one character and the next chapter would be about someone else and I didn't know what was going on at first. Once the story started to fall into place and everything made sense I truly enjoyed it. This was a book that I wanted to keep reading to find out what would happen next. I would definitely read another book by the author and I would recommend this book as well.

    I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishers for my honest review.
