Cover Letter

Dear Reviewer,

We are pleased to announce the publication of N. L. Eskeland's Menace in the Walls.  

Menace in the Walls, published by Science2Discover, is a fiction based on a true and controversial story that took place in the mid-1990s in Cleveland, OH. During an outbreak of pulmonary hemorrhage resulting in the death of several young infants, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), led by Dr. Dorr Dearborn of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio, investigated the first 10 cases and found an association between the deaths and water-damaged homes containing the toxic mold, Stachybotrys. Dr. Dearborn read Menace in the Walls and advised Eskeland on the medical aspect of the disease. Menace in the Walls will be educational as well as entertaining for children as it focuses on the medical/scientific aspects of mold.

As Menace in the Walls begins with 13- year old Joshua helping his physician mother at Cleveland General Hospital during a winter flood. While working in a research laboratory later during the summer, Joshua stumbles on a menace that has claimed the life of his beloved horse, Mandy. He is determined to solve the mystery. During the course of the book, Joshua uncovers his sister Kelley’s inadvertent link to a sinister plot involving the mysterious deaths of infants. Readers are faced with the question of whether Joshua can solve the case without putting his life and Kelley’s in danger.

We invite you to order a complimentary copy of Menace in the Walls to review.

We hope you enjoy reading Menace in the Walls and look forward to hearing from you. If you would like to contact Dr. Eskeland for an interview, we will be happy to oblige.

My Kindest Regards,

Celeste Bailey, Ph.D.
