BOOK REVIEW: THE SUREST POISON
BY CHESTER CAMPBELL

We hope you enjoy this book review by Patricia Reid.





The Surest Poison introduces the readers to two new exciting characters of varied backgrounds.

Sid Chance is somewhat of a loner. He has a rustic cabin in a rural area outside of Nashville where he spent a lot of time. Now he has put the hermit life behind him awhile and headed back to civilization and Sidney Chance Investigations. Jaz LeMieux has been encouraging Sid to get back into the mainstream. She has been lending him a little help with his investigations.

Jaz has given Sidís name to Arnie Bailey, an attorney. Arnie has a client who desperately needs some help. Arnieís client is the owner of a business that is currently under attack. It seems that there is an area in the back of his business where TCE has been dumped. TCE is a nonflammable, colorless liquid with a somewhat sweet odor and a sweet, burning taste. The description sounds pretty tame doesnít it? This harmless sounding liquid can cause horrible disfigurement and even death. The TCE has made its way into the water supply and the result has been horrible.

Sid must find the former owner of the business and prove that the previous owner dumped the TCE. Easier said than done. Sid runs into a dead-end at every turn. The previous owner does not want to be found.

Jaz has her own business she inherited from her father as well as a beautiful home. Since this doesnít keep her busy enough she decided that she wants to become a private investigator. She has been lending a hand to Sid but gets sidetracked by a personal problem. Her housekeeperís grandson is in trouble and wonít tell anyone what or who has threatened him.

Sid and Jaz work together to tackle both problems but they are working against the clock on both matters. A hearing is scheduled on the TCE matter and Lizís housekeeperís grandson is determined to take his family and run away. Chester D. Campbell has created two new characters with a lot to interest the reader. I hope this is just an introduction to a new series. If so, I canít wait for the next book.
