Description

Something's rotten on Long Island. When Filomena discovers that a fetid glass factory in a run-down area of Long Island is spewing poisons into the local water supply, she quickly smells a rat. She's sure that her nemesis, a cutthroat industrial polluter with an airtight financial empire, is somehow behind the contamination. Armed only with an axe to grind, the gutsy Filomena knows she'll have to play dirty to clean up the neighborhood.Her search for justice introduces her to the unfamiliar scent of privilege - from the state-of-the-art chemistry lab of a local university to the crumbling ruins of a beachfront estate, from a glittering high-society party to an intimidating high-security chemical plant - and immerses her in the all-too-familiar stench of political corruption and personal greed. Once again, Filomena's nose for trouble has drawn her into a case that's more than a little hazardous to her health. As the action heats up, she must juggle the dangers of the investigation with the demands of her adorable three-year-old daughter and the delights of a surprising new romance.show more
