Critical Reaction

I received a copy of Critical Reaction by Todd M. Johnson from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

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.

I really enjoyed this book.  There were a lot of characters to get to know but that kept things interesting.  There were several times that I can't believe Ryan and Emily didn't give up the case.  I think the more they found out the more they believed in Kieran and the need to get to the bottom of what happened at LB5.  Reading this makes me wonder if there are things like this going on and we don't know about it.
