About the Book

In August 2005, Hurricane Katrina strikes, causing one of the worst natural disasters in American history. Thousands of displaced persons suffer, provided with corpse-pickling, formaldehyde-contaminated housing in the form of recreational trailers, distributed by FEMA and manufactured by unscrupulous government contractors. Formaldehyde takes its toll on lungs, skin, and life itself. After Katrina has blown away their hopes and dreams, the injured seek justice while the system laughs in their faces.

In response, an organization known as the Resistance forms when defendants, sick and tired of spending millions to avoid paying billions, seek a way to settle deadly scores. They begin a methodical elimination of their opponents, first with intimidation, then torture, and finally murder. Dr. Tristan P. Baines, engineer, physician, survivalist, and the expert for the Katrina plaintiffs, suddenly finds himself a casualty of this madness when his family is targeted. Together with his partners, crusty Joseph Trueblood and Laura Swain, a talented lawyer, Baines sets out to confront Gordon Gasher, a.k.a. GAG, a Resistance hack and monster sadist.

This novel, written from a physician’s point of view, explores a dark corner of the American justice system, where toxic tort plaintiffs and defendants collide, battling for billions.
