WILMINGTON, Del., Feb. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sophia DeNapoli's book "Secrets, Lies & Chemical Compounds: The Pawn" (ISBN-10: 1503089045 and ISBN-13: 978-1-5030-8904-4) would seem fantastical if it were not inspired by her own experiences working for the largest chemical company in the world. In her new crime thriller, DeNapoli compels readers to confront the painful truth that greed, corruption, scandal, sex and cover-ups are rampant in the corporate world. In the book, Bernie DeVittoria has a serious ethical dilemma: help the company to hide their murky misdoings, or speak out against the depravity.

Corporate lawlessness is rampant, but how does it happen? As the story begins, Renard Chemicals has hired Bernie back, along with a smattering of additional candidates. Grateful for the employment, the new hires are set on building a defense for the company against several high-profile lawsuits. Recently divorced, Bernie needs a break from her personal dramas. She is relieved to be back at the company she once loved.

Bernie dives into her job overseeing the retrieval and classification of legal documents for the lawsuits against Renard. In the process, she uncovers the company's depraved negligence toward the victims in the chemical lawsuits. Bernie clashes with the company and openly airs her disapproval of the treatment of the victims. As she pushes forward, she uncovers the "Jackal" behind the chemical tragedy in a suspense-filled, secretive game – with an outrageous twist ending.

States DeNapoli, "This story is seriously about control, power and global mega-chemical companies."

"Secrets, Lies & Chemical Compounds: The Pawn" is available for sale online at and other channels.
