Fracking Justice

Length: 403 pages4 hours


A lakeside community defends itself from hydrofracking and gas storage in this environmental thriller, the sequel to Michael J. Fitzgerald’s The Fracking War. Is this a band of eco-terrorists, as defined by U.S. law, or are they just good citizens desperate to defend their homes, their community and their water?


In this novel, crusading newspaper publisher Jack Stafford once again sets the stage for a scarily familiar political scenario - how the U.S. government could attempt to silence energy industry critics and activists by labeling them 'eco-terrorists,' using federal anti-terror laws enacted quickly in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.


Praise for Fracking Justice


“This isn’t just a good read – it’s grounded in a very real ecological crisis, and a backlash against those who dare to speak up. Fracking Justice captures exactly what is at stake, both for the planet and for our freedoms.”

Will Potter, author, Green Is The New Red


“At a time when fracking and other forms of extreme fossil fuel development threaten to destroy everything we hold dear, Fracking Justice is there to remind us of the true cost of fracking. It may be fiction but it shows how the fossil fuel industry is fracturing not only our land but our communities. Read this page-turner and then pass it on.”

Josh Fox, director of Gasland and Gasland 2


“Fracking Justice is a smart, powerful page-turner, leading the way into a genre we need more of – environmental thriller. It’s exciting, edge-of-your-seat writing and all the more scary because it’s so timely.”

Ellie Ashe, author, Chasing the Dollar


“Michael J. Fitzgerald has the uncanny ability to write in the meaty,
fact-filled manner of a veteran hardscrabble journalist while also weaving
a deft and enjoyable storyline befitting a seasoned novelist. In Fracking

Justice — just like in The Fracking War — he puts his knowledge about the
environmental and social issues associated with hydraulic fracturing to use

in crafting a real page-turner with characters you feel for and care

about. This is a must-read whether you want to learn more about fracking

or are simply a fan of good writing.”
