Toms River: A Story of Science and Salvation , Dan Fagin

This was a tour de force of narrative nonfiction, somehow going into medieval dye-making history at the same time as being as readable as a John Grisham courtroom drama and as gripping as any eco-thriller, with the additional impact of being a true story.
This was easily one of the best non-fiction books I've read this year, and one I've recommended to more people than I can remember.
A cautionary tale of pollution, company towns, and industry's toxic legacy, this wonderful book is a "must-read" for, well, everyone.
