THE CYANIDE CANARY A Story of Injustice--One Man Caused It, One Man Fought It, One Man's Life was Destroyed by It

by | Read by Michael Prichard

Contemporary Culture • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Reminiscent of ERIN BROCKOVICH, THE CYANIDE CANARY is the account of the battle for justice on behalf of Scott Dominquez, a worker who was found unconscious in a storage tank laced with cyanide. The book recounts the efforts of author Joseph Hilldorfer, an EPA special agent, and two zealous prosecutors, who worked to bring to justice the tank's owner--who not only stored the dangerous chemicals, but also thumbed his nose at anyone who tried to stop him. The story reads like a thriller, even when it explains how difficult it is to enforce environmental laws and to prosecute environmental criminals. Michael Prichard's reading, however, is disappointing. Prichard never seems to demonstrate emotion, and his performance, yet again, is remarkably monotonic. Still, the listener can survive Prichard because the story sounds like a well-written novel. D.J.S. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
