In the end, I only survived two-thirds of the book before the poor writing became too much of a distraction. And I'm a math teacher!
Human Rites Trilogy
I can't imagine how far i'd have read if I was an English teacher! One person found this helpful. A wonderful mystery exposing the business tactics of big pharma, University hospitals, and greed. The characters are real and multi dimensional. This is a fast-paced story that captures your interest from page one. It is a great example of the well-written storytelling of Dustin Stevens. There is definitely possibilities of future stories featuring the same leading characters found in Catastrophic! This author's novels are recommended for anyone who enjoys fast-paced thrillers.
If I could give more stars I would.
I loved this story. Totally engaging from beginning to end. Impossible to put down. The courtroom drama and legal aspects compared favorably with 'The Rainman' of John Grisham and the real-life story of Erin Brockovich's battle for justice against a big corporation.
The State of the Thriller: A Roundtable | CrimeReads
Having had a total knee and hip replacement, I could certainly empathize with Tyler. I prefer Stevens' novels, like this one, where the the story is character driven and the amount of physical violence is toned down. Highly recommended. I found this book to be well-written with well developed characters. The story line is believable and fairly fast-paced. The young lawyer, Shane Lazlo, takes on a malpractice case after football star Tyler Bentley is injured during a game and shysters talk him into having a knee replacement.
This replacement is untested, so in essence Tyler is a guinea pig. The replacement disintegrates which makes an amputation of Tyler's leg imperative. The defendants "bad guys" are choir boys compared to Ute Carbone, the "enforcer. I noted very few misspelled words, which is refreshing in e-books. I think Dustin Stevens, author, has a great future! A heartwarming interesting courtroom drama I read in one day!
So many interesting and decent people working for what is right against disgusting depraved people we see too often for comfort now days! But the best part about this drama is the decent ordinary people winning for a change!

DPReview Digital Photography. Locke makes every scene count with a complex plot that unfolds surprises at every turn and packs a satisfying conclusion…. Highly recommended for fans of fast-paced mysteries with strong geographic angles and appealing underdogs. Locke uses small, incremental deceptions to draw her main character into big and dangerous mistakes…Subtle and compelling. She writes with equal amounts grace and passion.
Lehane [does]. Each is willing to use the murder mystery as a framework for much more ambitious, atmospheric fiction. Equal parts murder mystery and family drama, the novel also draws readers in through its considerations of African-American history and life in post-Katrina Louisiana. A mystery that expands the whole idea of the mystery, reaching from the present deeply into the past. Great writing, the kind that gives you goose bumps.
