Mike Jacobs is a young, idealistic environmental lawyer working for the Department of Environmental Protection, and he is thrown into a case of intrigue, violence, and courtroom drama in "Amid Rage." A Western Pennsylvania strip mine is the battleground as its owner will do whatever it takes to get every bit of coal from the ground, and if it means buying off landowners (or stronger tactics), then so be it. In the middle is Jacobs, up against the owner, his high-powered Philadelphia lawyer, and a system and state government that seems unwilling and disinterested in doing the right thing.

Joel Burcat returns to the Brown Posey Press Show with "Amid Rage," available on Headline Books. An environmental attorney, Burcat has written five novels, and has edited two eminent books on environmental and oil and gas law, and co-edited seven editions of "Pennsylvania Environmental Law and Practice."

A Philadelphia native, Burcat now lives with his wife in Harrisburg, PA.
