Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Environmental and consumer advocate Brockovich has created a protagonist in her own image in this highly melodramatic thriller, the first in a new series. Angela Joy "AJ" Palladino left Scotia, W.Va., population 867, as an unwed 17-year-old mother following a terrible accident that almost killed her. Ten years later, after success and fame in a battle against Capital Power that earned her the sobriquet "the People's Champion," she returns to Scotia, to assist lawyer Zachariah Hardy in a fight against Masterson Mining's new mountaintop removal project. When Hardy dies before AJ's arrival, she teams with Hardy's lawyer daughter, Elizabeth, to combat the company owned by dastardly Kyle Masterson and run by Kyle's son, Cole, father of AJ's son, David. As the two women wage an uphill battle against murderous opposition, Brockovich's environmental message gets buried in a sludge pile of clichés. (Mar.)

From Booklist

In this serviceable first novel by consumer advocateBrockovich, a well-known environmental activist, AJ Palladino, a single mother in her late twenties, returns to her West Virginia hometown to clerk for an activist lawyer. But when she arrives in the town of Scotia, she gets the worst possible news: the lawyer has just died. Soon AJ begins to suspect the man was murdered and that his daughter is also at risk. But who�s responsible? Could it be AJ�s former lover (not to mention the father of her son), Colt Masterson, whose mining company is operating in the area? While the novel will have appeal for Brockovich followers, some mystery readers might be annoyed by its poor construction�the jumps in point of view, for example, are handled clumsily�and by its very familiar and predictable story of corporate misuse of the environment. On the other hand, the prose flows smoothly enough, and AJ herself is, if not particularly original, at least appealing enough to interest those fond of the movie about Brockovich�s own activism. --David Pitt
