Power And Deceit by Richard Jackson


In a small West Virginia town, a tragic coal mining accident traps 13 men deep in the bowels of the earth. Their only hope: self-contained breathing apparatus—SCBAs—that supply only about an hour’s worth of air. But before they can even use these safety devices, an explosion rips through the mine, killing 90 men.

Upon learning of the accident, Anthony Harrison, chairman of Sterling Limited, who supplies the SCBAs, immediately dispatches newly appointed President Rick Henderson to the mine. Rick soon discovers the unthinkable—Sterling knowingly sold defective SCBAs to the mining company.

Rick teams up with Buck Schultz, the son of one of the miners who died in the explosion, and together they sort through a web of corporate cover-ups, a secret smuggling ring…and murder.

In Power & Deceit, Richard Jackson tells a timely tale of corporate greed that is paid for with human lives.
