Star Witness (Willa Jansson) by Lia Matera [Kindle Edition]\r\n\r\nBook Description\r\nPublication Date: February 26, 2013\r\nA Simon & Schuster eBook. Simon & Schuster has a great book for every reader.\r\nEditorial Reviews\r\nAmazon.com Review\r\nRemember the \"Twinkie Defense,\" where a lawyer tried to get his client off on a murder charge on the basis of too much sugar in his diet? Fictional (but totally believable) San Francisco attorney Willa Jansson goes one step beyond in this addition to Lia Matera\'s lively series: Willa uses the \"UFO Defense,\" based on her client\'s memories (revealed under hypnosis) of being in an alien spaceship when his sports car went off the road and killed another driver. Jansson finds four squabbling UFO experts to support this defense strategy, and not the least of Matera\'s many high points in a book full of them is her ability to convince us that it might just have happened. Previous Jansson cases in paperback include Last Chants, Hidden Agenda, Prior Convictions, and Radical Departure.\r\nFrom Library Journal\r\nIn the latest Willa Jansson mystery from Matera (Last Chants, LJ 6/1/96), the Scopes Monkey trial and the trial of O.J. Simpson haunt San Francisco business lawyer Willa when she unwisely takes on a vehicular manslaughter and felony hit-and-run case in nearby Santa Cruz. Her client\'s alibi: he was being abducted by aliens. Willa doesn\'t know what or whom to believe following a series of unexplained events, including crop circles, assassination attempts, and black-helicopter sightings, to name a few. Matera offers a fast-paced narrative stuffed with incident and characters. She has done her UFO homework and depicts the subculture of ture believers sympathetically. Willa\'s four expert witnesses present some current perspectives on UFOs?their bickering is both informative and funny?and Matera resists pat answers. The complex plot sometimes borders on the incoherent, however, featuring many red herrings and some undeveloped story lines, and not all members of the unpredictable cast are well integrated into the novel. Following the story, Matera offers an extensive bibliography and a video list. For general readers.?Linda Lee Landrigan, N.Y.\r\nCopyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc.
