When a lethal contaminant infects Schwarzwalden Packing Corporation's hamburger production, all hell breaks loose in Little Bang, TX, culminating in the sudden death of the company's owner, Ferdinand Schwarz, during an emergency meeting at the factory to confront the problem. Although his doctors declare Mr. Schwarz's death due to a long-anticipated fatal heart attack, his son Fred has an off-the-wall hunch it was due to foul play. Fred starts an investigation which, to his surprise and horror, implicates his father in several hitherto unsolved homicides, including that of his wife Rosa, whose death had all along been attributed to suffocation following an asthma attack. When a mysterious explosion and fire ravage the Schwarz family mansion, Fred and his late father's exotic new wife Veronica are temporarily trapped inside. Surviving this near-lethal catastrophe, Fred continues his hunt for the alleged killer on a trail that leads to more danger and power-plays and love and hate than he had ever bargained for. Down to (and perhaps beyond) the final paragraph of the final chapter of "Agent Orange," author Lewis Kornfeld keeps you guessing, gasping and grinning just as he did in his three romantic novels - "The Fielder Heart," "Adam's Wives," and "A Female Companion" - and his first mystery "Moore's Law," which was also published by Xlibris.
