Poison Town

I received a copy of Poison Town by Creston Mapes from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
There’s More Than One Kind of Poison in This Town People are sick and dying. Rumors are swirling. Some claim chemicals leaking from a manufacturing plant are causing the cancer that’s crippling people on the poor side of Trenton City, Ohio. Yet nothing at the plant appears amiss. The problem remains a mystery until reporter Jack Crittendon’s long-time mechanic falls ill and he investigates. Soon Jack becomes engulfed in a smokescreen of lies, setups, greed, and scandal. The deeper he digs, the more toxic the corruption he uncovers. As he faces off with the big-time players behind the scenes and tries to beat the clock before more people die, he realizes the chillingly unthinkable—he knows too much.
This is the second book in The Crittendon Files series and is a very good book.  Jack and his family are just getting themselves back on track after his wife's kidnapping when he gets wind of rumors about the fiberglass manufacturing plant producing chemicals that are killing people in town.  Jack decides to look into it more, but the more he finds out the more people go missing or end up dead.  When his wife is run off the road things become personal.  Jack finally gets enough evidence to put the plant out of business but then finds out several people close to him have been paid to overlook or cover up the plants wrong doings.
