A novel by

 
 
W.T. Halvorsen, an innocent man, is being scapegoated for the crimes of the rich and the mighty. Dragged into a western Pennsylvania courtroom in chains and shackles, Halvorsen must convince a judge and jury that everything they know about their state, their government and their town's chief employer is a lie. His is a tale of organized crime and a corrupt oil company CEO who are dumping toxic waste into a quiet rural community for profit; of local officials who look the other way in hopes of saving their impoverished town; of one honest man who must fight for his life, his friends, his home, a man who must in the end convince the judge and jury of the truth - or die in prison. And if W.T. Halvorsen dies, everything he gave his life for will die with him.
