Product Description

A thrilling environmental mystery enriched with well-researched technical information about modern power generation, coal mining, fracking, anthropology, alternative medicine and Native American Indian history.   

Mary Ann Hodges is a female professional working in a male-oriented, energy-related industry.  She is an environmental manager who takes on a job to build a near-zero emissions coal power plant and mine in the Utah desert. Mary Ann discovers a conspiracy to hide the truth about an illegal gold mining operation in partnership with a shale gas fracking company which is threatening the region environmentally. She goes on a desperate hunt for answers, drawing on spiritual strength for the courage to overcome the nightmarish challenges of her boss that include kidnapping and attempted murder.

Endorsements

From BestThrillers.com - “Much more than a superb conspiracy thriller, Backfill is an absolute must-read for any environmentally conscious reader…a riveting read that’ll expand readers’ understanding of what happens at power plants and the possibility of back-alley conspiracies and executive corruption.…the book’s exciting pace and unusual set of circumstances set it apart from the political thrillers and spy-centric books flooding the shelves.“ 

From Jo Ella White, Author of Jim’s Courthouse, Jincey’s Rock, The Golden Pawn, and Ko-Wee Mountain. - “This author takes you deeply into a subject few know anything about.  I have always had a great appreciation for family history and our ancestors, but even more so after reading Backfill.  It is a book hard to put down once you start reading.”

From Winnie Williams, Author of “The Green Earth Challenge:  Integrating Faith and the Environment.” - “There is an astonishing amount of environmental information in Backfill by Cynthia Soule Levesque plus a thrilling mystery that mesmerizes the reader. The author has woven a gripping mystery into a book of fiction and yet has provided a startling amount of evidence pointing the way to the environmental impact related to the coal industry.  This marvelous book is entertaining as well as a challenge to unearth industries that contribute significantly to global warming. Please read this book.”

From Betty Orth –  Editorial Assistant, Author of Children’s Books, Poems - “Short chapters set each vivid scene; characters are masterfully crafted. Science, industry, medicine, ancestry, spirituality – all interwoven, creating parallel story lines. One is drawn in and captivated by the intrigue and suspense…. right to the very end of the book. Then you wish there was more! “

    I enjoyed Backfill. I thought Ms. Levesque did an amazing job of keeping all the story lines going, but in small enough pieces that it was easy to pick up between flights. And I think the technical threads were easy enough to follow and really added to the story. I thought it was great read.

    Backfill is a well written novel that captivates you from beginning to end. The well-researched characters, professional heroines, corporate criminals, environmental issues and adventures into the mining world all bring you to want to finish the book in one sitting. It would be a wonderful Christmas gift for that stocking stuffer for all ages.

    Cyndi educates while entertaining the reader with an exciting mystery. This is a good read as you make your way through dangerous mines and discover an ancient and lost civilization. Although the story is fiction, the places and lost tribe are disguised but real. Prayers and faith strengthen characters as they face terror and despair.

    I enjoyed this book even more than the author's first book. She obviously has a detailed knowledge of the mining industry and environmental issues along with knowledge about cultures. Details of all of these things were expertly woven into the story and made it very interesting and fun to read. In addition to enjoying the story, I learned many things.
