[M]ost of the conjecture braided throughout Bautz's text appears to be level-headed and evidence-based. it is a compelling and well-researched examination of workplace safety laws. - Kirkus Reviews March 27, 2011: Dean Bautz's birthday.
When Sheila's husband, Dean, dies while seismic drilling in Alberta, she writes her favorite quote on a sticky note and tapes it on her desk:
Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth. - Albert Einstein.
Walking The Cutline When Companies Kill, A Memoir is the true account of a small town woman's determination to seek justice for her late husband's work-place fatality. As Sheila submerges deeper into a world of lies and political injustice for profit, her suspicions about the real cause of Dean's death escalates as she attains conflicting and questionable information from all agencies involved - including Occupational Health and Safety.
Against various opposition and advice to "just let it go" and surrender, Sheila stubbornly persists for nearly four years, piecing together what really happened. Ultimately, she uncovers a concrete document deemed impossible to attain - the smoking gun.
However, Canadian laws prove to be the ultimate obstacle in Sheila's pursuit to seek justice in a country silent about exposing what really happens when companies kill.
