When Pamela Lawson decides to have breast augmentation to feel better about herself, she has no idea she’s about to put her life on the line. The implants that Dr. MacNamara recommends to her is supposed to keep her from getting uncomfortable ends up causing cancer. What Pamela doesn’t know, is that filing suit against P.S.S. sets off a series of deadly explosions and death threats.
In Murder by Another Name by Jo Stone, attorney Janet Stephenson sets off to get justice for Pamela Lawson’s sickness, and ends up finding evil lurking in the P.S.S. company. Janet is worried about Pam’s health and is trying to get her some money to help pay for her chemo and other expenses that are involved with her liver cancer. She hopes that she can get her the help she needs before it’s too late to save her.
I thought this book was really interesting. I struggled reading about a mother who gets sick. After having my own mom pass away from breast cancer, I hesitated to read this book. I enjoy mystery and law cases, so I started reading this book. I had a hard time putting it down! The explosion at the beginning of the book was a perfect way to catch my attention! I struggled a little with some of the long legal process that Jo goes into. I felt it wasn’t necessary to give us all of the legal stuff. I enjoyed the characters in the book. I felt like I could really relate to Pam Lawson, after having three kids of my own, I would like to feel better about myself. However, after reading this book, I no longer want breast implants. I would suggest Murder by Another Name by Joe Stone to people interested in law stories.
