Cotton Trash

Robert Maddison

Third in the Jack Miller Trilogy

Cotton Trash is the gripping third installment in the eco-thriller series featuring investigative journalists Jack Miller and Sharon Davis.

Set in rural Australia, the duo receives an anonymous tip about unusually high cancer rates in their community. Their relentless investigation uncovers a web of corruption involving politicians, bureaucrats, and a powerful multinational pharmaceutical corporation. At the heart of the scandal is a dangerous herbicide used in cotton farming, leading to a deadly cover-up that puts Jack and Sharon in grave danger.

Inspired by the documentary "The Monsanto Papers," this thrilling tale of David versus Goliath echoes the spirit of "Erin Brockovich," as the journalists face increasing threats while fighting for the truth.


About the Author

Robert Maddison is the pen name of Dr Bill Phillips, a former senior executive in the Australian Federal environment bureaucracy. Then for three years, he served as the Deputy Secretary General of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands based in Switzerland. Following that he was a freelance environmental consultant and CEO of a not-for-profit organisation. He now uses these real-life experiences to help shape eco-thrillers: a sub-genre with a focus on corruption in the environmental arena. His first eco-thriller was 'Flood Country' and his second ‘Trumped Up Corella’. ‘Cotton Trash’ is the third in this trilogy.
Bill Phillips is now retired and living a quiet life while working on his next eco-thriller. He says that “Fiction writing is a way to entertain your reader while also passing on some insights into the ugly realities that go on behind the scenes in the politics of the environment.”
