Once in the inner circle; Bonvillain is exposed to an underworld where married supervisors use drugs, alcohol, intimidation and promises of advancement to elicit sexual favors from young unsuspecting women; a parish official engages in malfeasance; monitors accept bribes from contractors; and a company spirals out of controlWhen investigators fail to contact the employees working in Terrebonne Parish, Bonvillain fears a corporate cover-up and decides to dust off his recorder and conduct an investigation of his own.

  4. I can't get anyone to do guest reviews for me either! I think I have my hubby talked into a Q & A style review for his latest book.

  5. Pretty sure I wouldn't be able to get my husband to do a guest blog. They both sound like good books.

  7. both look great. You'll have to charm your husband into guest posting. That would be fun. But if he's like my husband he wouldn't be caught dead blogging. (although I know he's shown my blog to some of his co-workers)

  8. Both books sound interesting. Maybe hubby would let you interview him and you could post it. Good luck!

  9. That would be so fun if your husband did a guest review! Would it help him to know that other blogger husbands have done guest posts? My husband did one last month and I think he had fun with it.

  12. Both those books look interesting. Too bad about your husband not reviewing - tell him it's his duty! My husband does review for me occasionally but I always have to edit for language :-)
