Chapter 1 May, Romney Marsh, Kent It was like a scene in a war film: three men running through the night towards a small plane, sagging under the loads they carried on their right shoulders.

Trish, eager to keep her volatile client out of trouble while she and Antony work and flirt, must also find time to help .

Trish, eager to keep her volatile client out of trouble while she and Antony work and flirt, must also find time to help Caro, recovering in the hospital, with a case of child abuse. Will investigates almost too well, connecting the bad sausages with a dead investigative journalist, until he and his new girlfriend, an employee of the suspect sausage company, are brutally beaten by a man whose neck Will breaks in self-defense-or so he says. The suspense will keep readers from looking too closely at the coincidences, but nothing will distract them from the disgusting way one loose end gets tied.

Why did investigative journalist Jamie Maxden die? The coroner says it was suicide. The case is closed  .

Why did investigative journalist Jamie Maxden die? The coroner says it was suicide. The case is closed. Only one man fights to re-open it. Will Applewood is sure Jamie was about to expose a scandal that would shame the British food industry. But Will is notorious for his conspiracy theories. No one listens to him. In despair he turns to his barrister, Trish Maguire. Felled by food poisoning in the middle of Will's case against a huge supermarket chain, Trish is ready to believe any story about dangers lurking inside the pretty packaging of food we all eat. Even though she has more than enough to do already with the trial, an attempt to save a child at terrible risk, and plenty of emotional complications of her own, she agrees to help. Will's campaign takes her deep into the countryside, revealing a world that seems quite different from the metropolitan life she knows. But human nature doesn't change - whatever the environment. Cruelty and intimidation can flourish in the ravishing landscape just as they do in the grimmest of inner-city housing estates. Moving between the two, trying to save lives and sanity, inexhaustable Trish is driven into a crusade - both personal and professional - that combines excitement, drama and agonising human tragedy.

Natasha Cooper's new Trish Maguire mystery, "Keep Me Alive," is a mixture of intrigue, action, and psychological suspense. Trish is a talented barrister who, along with her head of chambers, Antony Shelley, is trying a case on behalf of Will Applewood and other British food producers. Applewood and his fellow plaintiffs are claiming that a large supermarket chain breached a verbal contract with them. It is a complex and messy case, and Trish becomes more emotionally involved in the outcome than she should.

While her lover is away on holiday, Trish is living alone and loving it. However, her tranquility is shattered when she and a close friend, Caro, come down with a case of food poisoning. Trish gets off lightly, but Caro's case is quite serious and potentially life threatening. Trish also gets embroiled in the investigation of a journalist's mysterious death that may be tied to a scandal in the meat industry. Finally, Trish is asked to interview a little girl named Kim who may be the victim of serious abuse at home.

In London barrister Trish Maguire works as Junior to Antony Shelley as they represent a group of small food producers in a "no win, no fee" breach of contract civil suit against the ruthlessly run giant Furbishers Food supermarket chain. The clients insist the chain tendered profitable contracts that led to the firms over extending themselves, but the supermarket giant acted in bad faith just enough to cause bankruptcy.

Meanwhile Trish and her friend Caro Lyalt suffer food poisoning from tainted sausage. This sends Will Applewood, who has the hots for Trish, to investigate the bad bangers. He traces a trail of spoiled carcasses sent from Kent to Normandy for processing, but a reporter covering the scam is murdered. Trish begins to have doubts about one of her clienst who seems to have either gone over the edge, but to verify this may prove deadly even as she works a second case involving child abuse.

KEEP ME ALIVE is an insightful look at the meat processing industry (at least in the European Union though America is probably similar) that will stun readers with the process. The story line is action-packed in and out of the court room so that the audience receives a solid investigative legal thriller in which the barrister may be the star but is not the prime investigator. Trish's second client adds depth as the barrister has to find time to do justice to both cases. Although allusions to Trish's past are sprinkled throughout the novel, these are never adequately explained so that the audience has no anchor. Still this is a fabulous exposé that will keep readers chewing long after finishing.
