Main Character Wrestles With Challenging Crisis in New True-to-Life...

Back at work after a painful divorce, Bernie DeVittoria defends Renard Chemical Company — but, the more she learns about the victims, the more she thinks she’s defending the wrong people in Sophia DeNapoli’s debut legal thriller, “Secrets, Lies & Chemical Compounds: The Pawn” (published by Balboa Press). The book is available for purchase at:

In the book, Bernie, the novel’s protagonist and character based on the author’s life and work experiences, has a serious ethical dilemma: help the company to hide their murky misdoings, or speak out against the depravity she uncovers and the “Jackal” behind the chemical tragedy. As she investigates plaintiffs and other innocents sickened or killed due to the company’s negligence, Bernie feels pulled in all directions. Does she do her job or follow her conscience? The outcome is completely in her hands.

“My novel is a gripping and inspiring tome, complex point of view … with a clean vision of corporate greed present, juxtaposed with a good, decent individual dead center in the controversy,” DeNapoli says, adding that she hopes her book “compels the readers to confront the painful truth that greed, corruption, scandals, sex and cover-ups are rampant in the corporate world.”
