商品の説明

内容紹介

Murder intrudes on PR Executive Jillian Hillcrest's routine as head communications executive at a small Silicon Valley biotechnology company. She is eagerly staying on message to inform investors, the media and the community about her company and its products. When someone near to her is murdered, a determined San Francisco police inspector involves her in the investigation, convinced she is key to solving the crime. She co-operates fully only to find that solving a murder is more hazardous than writing press releases. On Message is the first in the Jillian Hillcrest mystery series. As with all the novels in this series, it was inspired by a real California case.

After reading the Brynn Bancroft series from Ms. Strand, I had a desire to go back and read more into Jillian Hillcrest. While the books aren't needed to fulfill any understanding, I am grateful that I took the opportunity to order this series! I learned a great deal about biotech companies that answered some of the questions I found myself asking while reading Brynn's series. When Jillian's friend Lisa is found murdered, the questions start rolling in. You're not quite sure who she should trust or where she should turn. I fell in love with how Strand incorporated up-to-date issues with this book. It's amazing how much deception there is in such an industry and scary that people are willing to kill if the wrong information ends up in hands that could expose and destroy an entire drug testing program as well as those involved in the venture. Definitely couldn't put it down!
5つ星のうち 4.0 Page turner! 2012/12/9

I enjoyed ON MESSAGE, right from the attention-grabbing, funny, first page. It's the story of amateur sleuth Jillian Hillcrest, who's pulled into crime-solving when one of her friends gets killed by a hit-and-run driver. Jillian is a public relations executive at a biotech company called Harmonia Technologies, located south of San Francisco in Redwood City. Harmonia is in clinical trials for a new lupus drug.

Joyce Strand brings to life the ins-and-outs of a how a biotech company works, from funding to research to setting up and running the trials to getting the media on board. It's a competitive ruthless world out there, with money and reputations and people's lives at stake, yet Jillian manages to live in it with ethics and compassion. Jillian is also passionate about her career in public relations, and, in addition to her job, spends a lot of time promoting her field.

When Jillian is pulled into the investigation by a San Francisco police detective, she doesn't think she could be at risk. But when there's a second murder, the stakes get higher, and Jillian finds herself in danger. There are plenty of twists and turns and red herrings in this mystery and I was guessing until the end. I liked Jillian and as I live near the Bay Area, I loved reading about San Francisco, Redwood City, Woodside and places in between. OPEN MEETINGS, the next in the series, is on my to-read list.

From health care debates to fatalities caused by "safe" drugs, the news is full of the goings-on in the world of giant pharmaceutical companies these days. On Message takes us inside that world with Jillian Hillcrest, a public relations executive for a company which is developing a drug for Lupus. The wheels-within-wheels world of On Message involves not only the difficulties of proving a drug's effectiveness, but the draw of greed for parasites who want to cash in on the profits. Jillian becomes inadvertently involved in the machinations of various unscrupulous players, and without her--no justice. More than the plots and intrigue, though, On Message is about the Jillian and her people--family, friends, neighbors--and their relationships. Although there are more red herrings in On Message than on your average Monterey fishing boat, this is not a book about gunfights and car chases, but about love and betrayal and redemption. Oh, and the short course in the history of PR. That and big pharma could use some image-polishing, and Strand wraps itin a very attractive package. And, finally good food and wine. We are in San Francisco, after all.

I picked up this book free during an Amazon giveaway. Ethical (?) PR flak Jillian Hillcrest finds herself knowing too much about hidden problems in the clinical trials for a new drug her company desperately needs.

If there was a storyline here, I missed it, between flashbacks and bits of information that might have been storylines eventually and overexplanation of irrelevant bits of Jillian's history and even sports references. It didn't help that an ethical PR person overstrained my willingness to suspend disbelief. Strand really needs to learn to apply the "is this necessary to develop the plot?" rule and ruthlessly toss out everything else, rather than falling in love with her writing and boring the reader. I got about a quarter of the way through and then couldn't stand it any more. Spelling, grammar, and formatting were okay, and the title was somewhat related to the events in the book.

5つ星のうち 5.0 A novel with a real sense of reality! 2012/3/1

Ms. Strand's book is a masterpiece, impressive for an author's first book! Its a novel that is impossible to put down! It describes the inner workings of Silicon Valley, written as descriptive of the pharmaceutical industry, the reality is that it accurately portrays the challenges that all start up companies face as they try to go from a vague idea to a multimillion dollar success! But much easier and more fun to read than one of those marketing books.

I understand there is another book on its way, and I'm looking forward to its arrival!
