Critical Reaction

Kieran Mullaney wasn't even supposed to be working at LB5 but with the shortage of staff recently, he was one of two employees that were assigned clean up in the Hanford Nuclear Facility. As long as the radiation sensors remained green, the environment was considered clean. When walking past a door that seemed to register some abnormal heat levels, Kieran pushed past the security doors to investigate. He found the the containers inside the room were literally on the verge of exploding and he had just enough time to warn his partner. Now racing against time and the sensors that were now changing to red indicating a radiation leak was spreading fast. If only he could get out in time.

Thankfully Kieran survived the nuclear blast but not without side effects. Plagued with chronic headaches and deep violent coughs every couple of days. They seem to build up. Yet it seems that Hanford Nuclear Facility is harboring more secrets than what Kieran has been told. Being told he wasn't exposed to any radiation despite what he saw just before the explosion with the radiation sensors, he has no choice but to sue Covington Nuclear which operates the Hanford Nuclear Facility. He doesn't want what happened to his father to be the same outcome for him. Only when his attorney pulls out at the last moment, Kieran contacts Emily Hart, an old friend of his who has recently practiced law. It's really her father that offers his only hope but lately Ryan has more on his mind than practicing law.

He's struggling to find a connection with his daughter Emily, now since losing his wife. He only hopes that despite the odds stacked against him of winning this case with Emily, that they can find a way to heal the rift that has only grown between them. It seems however that Hanford may be truly hiding evidence that would prove Kieran's case but until they can find the right witnesses and evidence that is literally disappearing before their eyes at every bend, Hanford may in fact win.

I received Critical Reaction by Todd M. Johnson compliments of Bethany House Publishers and Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions expressed are strictly my own. The beginning of the novel is a bit confusing and I found myself struggling to get my bearings to continue. Having LOVED Todd's previous novel, The Deposit Slip, I was hoping it was just a rough beginning. I am glad I dug deep and persevered. There are a few storylines that open the book and once those are sorted out, you start rolling right along with the mystery and intrigue Todd was going for. This conveys the scary details you have to consider after the recent nuclear power plant meltdown in Japan recently. But once again Todd puts a unique spin on this one. I rate this one a 4.5 out of 5 stars and look forward to more novels like this one. A must read for fans of John Grisham and James Patterson.
