Description : Harry Bonner is the new mayor of Comptons Pond, a small
suburban town where he goes about his days officiating weddings
and attempting to solve post-election issues. But one evening after
curiosity leads him to open a locked file cabinet in his office, Harry
has no idea that what he finds inside will forever change the lives of
the people in his community, his own family included.
After a paper falls out of a binder inside the file cabinet, Harry soon
discovers that it is a proposal to clean up toxic waste in his town,
specifically at Smithfield Powder Works. With assistance from his
wife, a seasoned environmental investigator, a borough attorney, and
several environmental activists, Harry begins what quickly becomes
a perilous investigation that he hopes will help build a case against
a company with executives determined to do whatever it takes to
cover up their illegal activities, even as more citizens in Comptons
Pond become gravely ill.
The Brook is the compelling story of a small town mayor and his crew
of experts as they embark on a race against time to save their town
and its people from the tragic effects of corporate greed.

Steve Catto
About: Steve Catto is an old man, or at least that's what it says on his birth certificate. He was born in Yorkshire, but his parents took him to Australia when he was six years old and he grew up there, sometimes racing cars across the desert.

He was never very good at school, but the one thing he did learn was how to learn, and he started writing programs for the computer at the local university, much to the disdain of his teachers who told him that he would ‘never make a living out of that rubbish'. In his late teens he returned to the UK, and his parents followed him – which wasn't what he wanted because he was hoping to get away from them. His first proper job was in the computer department of an infamous Oxford publishing company, and he subsequently went on to write software for electricity control systems, and simulators for the military. He started to fly gliders and wrote programs to analyse the data from aircraft flight recorders, where he also learned to fly, and crash, lots of other types of aircraft as well – which was the best part of the job. At various times in his career he has also lived and worked in France, Switzerland, and Canada, and he now lives in Scotland. Since appearing in school plays as a child he has performed almost continuously on the amateur stage, and spent a few years scuba diving. These two things have nothing to do with each other. In terms of his pedigree as an author he has written many technical manuals and filled in countless timesheets, so is well versed in the art of conjuring up works of fiction, however he has never written a novel before, especially not one that involves a blonde girl and a man with a bow and arrow, but he did once spend three weeks working in a factory that made handles for buckets.
