PRAISE FOR The Killing of Karen Silkwood: "This riveting book gets beyond the surface facts and simple emotions of the Silkwood case to the fundamental and in some cases frightening aspect of a story that may never be completely told."--Christian Science Monitor
"An impressive and vital new book, or better yet, just call it 'impressive and vital. . .' meets a demanding test of objectivity."--Washington Post
"An admirable job of separating what is fact. . .from supposition, what is theory from what is documented evidence. For that alone, the book is valuable."--New Republic
"Nobody - not Ian Fleming, not Agatha Christie - could have concocted a murder mystery/spy thriller as intriguing as the Karen Silkwood story."--The Trial Diplomacy Journal
"First-rate reporting and tight, edgy writing."--Kirkus Reviews
"A true-life thriller. . . raises serious and disturbing questions."--Playboy
"Exciting. . .important."--Boston Globe
"A powerful indictment of one nuclear corporation and the nuclear industry as a whole."--Library Journal
"Chilling."--Atlantic Monthly
"Suspense is ever-present. Shocks are electric."--San Francisco Chronicle
"This jam-packed little thriller has all the elements of a best-selling novel. . .There is one catch. It's all true."--Florida Sun-Sentinel
