Murder By Another Name Book Review

Crime and corporate intrigue propel this captivating murder mystery as noted trial lawyer Stone uses her experience trying silicone gel breast implant cases to provide palpable reality to her novel's courtroom suspense.

Pamela Lawson just wants her figure back after childbirth. A plastic surgeon and the industry spokesman for the new Mammselle foam coated implant, Dr. Dan MacNamara is sure the Mammselle implant is perfect for his patient, but neither he nor Pamela know that the manufacturer has concealed the results of secret internal studies that show all animals they tested have developed liver cancer.

Sherri Barker, a detail person for the manufacturer and Dr. MacNamara's mistress, has just delivered to MacNamara the details of these studies when she is killed by a car bomb, and soon Dr. MacNamara's life is also in danger from assassins hired by the silicone manufacturer and one of its corporate cohorts. Meanwhile a television reporter and an FDA investigator are preparing to air a special on the new implants.

Denver trial lawyer Janet Stephenson must navigate the minefields of corporate machination and attempted murder while trying to bring a grand jury indictment against the manufacturer for her client Pamela Lawson, now awaiting a liver transplant for her liver cancer. The worlds of criminal and civil law merge within the thrilling legal twists and turns of the ensuing courtroom drama as Janet seeks justice for the lives lost or ruined by corporate greed.

This was a page turner that I couldn't put down.

Pamela Lawson just wants to look attractive for her Husband (what women doesn't?) so she decides to get breast implants. She is reassured by her doctor that these are top of the line.

Pamela has the surgery and feels great about herself.

A little more then a year later, Pamela starts having medical problems. She has a hard time taking care of her family, and just getting out of bed in the morning.

When she sees her doctor, she finds out she has liver cancer. Shortly after, a connection between her cancer and her implants is made.

Pamela and her Husband Larry seek help from a lawyer (Janet Stephenson) to sue the company that makes the breast implants.

The book really takes off from there about the many legal troubles Pamela and Larry battle and how Janet tries to help them along the way.

This book has a great plot, a couple murders, and many really good twists.

Jo Stone is a great Author who really keeps her readers interested. If you like Law and Order you will love this book!!!

~~All opinions expressed are 100% mine. I was not paid for this review. I did receive a copy of the book to read thanks to Bostick Communications~~
