Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The ``midnight haul'' of the title is the surreptitious and illegal dumping of toxic chemical wastes. A young graduate journalism student attempts to find out whether the excessive suicides (including his girl friend's mysterious death) occurring in a small New Jersey town are merely coincidence or the result of the town's being a ``toxic nightmare''deadly to live in and exorbitantly expensive, if not virtually impossible, to clean up. Collins (True Crime, True Detective, and other novels) has painted a vivid, chillingly realistic picture of what is facing this country with continued indiscriminate dumping of toxic chemicals. The ultimate horror skillfully described is the total detachment exhibited by large companies and their employees. Didactic in spotswell done overall. Jean B. Palmer, Phillips Acad. Lib., Andover, Mass.
