520    The riveting true story of a small town ravaged by 
       industrial pollution, Toms River melds hard-hitting 
       investigative reporting, a fascinating scientific 
       detective story, and an unforgettable cast of characters 
       into a sweeping narrative in the tradition of A Civil 
       Action, The Emperor of All Maladies, and The Immortal Life
       of Henrietta Lacks. One of New Jersey's seemingly 
       innumerable quiet seaside towns, Toms River became the 
       unlikely setting for a decades-long drama that culminated 
       in 2001 with one of the largest legal settlements in the 
       annals of toxic dumping. A town that would rather have 
       been known for its Little League World Series champions 
       ended up making history for an entirely different reason: 
       a notorious cluster of childhood cancers scientifically 
       linked to local air and water pollution. For years, large 
       chemical companies had been using Toms River as their 
       private dumping ground, burying tens of thousands of leaky
       drums in open pits and discharging billions of gallons of 
       acid-laced wastewater into the town's namesake river. In 
       an astonishing feat of investigative reporting, prize-
       winning journalist Dan Fagin recounts the sixty-year saga 
       of rampant pollution and inadequate oversight that made 
       Toms River a cautionary example for fast-growing 
       industrial towns from South Jersey to South China. He 
       tells the stories of the pioneering scientists and 
       physicians who first identified pollutants as a cause of 
       cancer, and brings to life the everyday heroes in Toms 
       River who struggled for justice: a young boy whose 
       cherubic smile belied the fast-growing tumors that had 
       decimated his body from birth; a nurse who fought to bring
       the alarming incidence of childhood cancers to the 
       attention of authorities who didn't want to listen; and a 
       mother whose love for her stricken child transformed her 
       into a tenacious advocate for change. A gripping human 
       drama rooted in a centuries-old scientific quest, Toms 
       River is a tale of dumpers at midnight and deceptions in 
       broad daylight, of corporate avarice and government 
       neglect, and of a few brave individuals who refused to 
       keep silent until the truth was exposed. 
520    Recounts the decades-long saga of the New Jersey seaside 
       town plagued by childhood cancers caused by air and water 
       pollution due to the indiscriminate dumping of toxic
