Synopsis & Book Info:
From New York Times bestselling author and internationally renowned environmental and consumer advocate Erin Brockovich, comes Rock Bottom, a debut thriller and first in a series of novels that introduces one of the most fascinating and memorable characters in suspense fiction.
Ten years ago, Angela Joy Palladino left home as a pregnant seventeen-year-old in trouble. Far from home, AJ succeeded in establishing her career as an environmental activist, dubbed "The People's Champion," only to suffer failure once again in the wake of a crushing media disaster.
So when AJ is offered a job with a lawyer who has taken on large mining corporations hoping to stop their mountaintop removal of her hometown, she is torn. As a single mother of a special needs nine-year-old boy, AJ needs any work she can get. But doing so will mean returning to the West Virginia hometown she left in disgrace so long ago.
AJ finally accepts, hoping to find a sense of purpose in her efforts to save the only place she ever called home. That is until threats begin to surface and bodies begin to pile up, and AJ soon discovers her own secrets aren't the only ones her mountain hometown has kept buried. Hitting rock bottom, AJ must face the betrayal of those once closest to her and confront the harrowing past she thought she had left behind.
In Rock Bottom, Erin Brockovich combines passionate intensity, first-rate story-telling, and her real-life experiences in a novel that will leave you breathless.

If you enjoyed the movie, then you will definitely enjoy this book. The movie based on Erin, is no where near as exciting as this book. But that's how fiction should be.
Mystery, intrigue, murder, and all the best aspects of a thriller are present in this story, with extremely strong characters, that I found to be well-rounded and fresh.
On a personal note, I loved the reference to the Canadian Football League too, but you'd have to read the book to see what I mean.
