Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales



about the book...



Landon Reed is an ex-quarterback convicted of organizing a points-shaving scheme. During his time in prison, he found forgiveness and faith and earned his law degree. Now he longs for an opportunity to prove his loyalty and worth. Be careful what you ask for.

Harry McNaughton is one of the founding partners of McNaughton & Clay—and the only lawyer willing to take a chance employing an ex-con-turned-lawyer. Though Landon initially questions Harry’s ethics and methods, it’s clear the crusty old lawyer has one of the most brilliant legal minds Landon has ever encountered. The two dive into preparing a defense for one of the highest-profile murder trials Virginia Beach has seen in decades when Harry is gunned down in what appears to be a random mugging. Then two more lawyers are killed when the firm’s private jet crashes. Authorities suspect someone has a vendetta against McNaughton & Clay, leaving Landon and the remaining partner as the final targets.

As Landon struggles to keep the firm together, he can’t help but wonder, is the plot related to a shady case from McNaughton & Clay’s past, or to the murder trial he’s neck-deep in now? And will he survive long enough to find out?


 
my review....


There is only one thing that I absolutely hate about a really good book - getting to the end! I can honestly say that Randy Singer's latest book is one of my absolutely favorites from him yet. It has everything you could hope for in a solid legal thriller - characters you can cheer for, ethical dilemmas, fun court room scenes, and the kind of suspense that keeps you flying from one scene to the next. Landon Reed is an absolutely unique character, with a shady past that causes the light of Christ to shine all the more clearly, and I loved watching him grow as a character. He is the very epitome of what it means to be a true man, not that he's perfect, but that he's able to admit his wrongs and rise up to be the man God has called him to be. His marriage is also one worth celebrating, as he and his wife remain true and devoted to each other despite the hurdles life throws their way. In the midst of getting to know these wonderful characters, Randy has woven an intricate plot of secrets and misdirection that made for a highly enjoyable read. Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales is written with Singer's typical sure hand, making for pleasurable prose that is simply a treat to read. The characters are likable, the story is deftly plotted, and you can't help but be attracted to the faith that shines through the pages.

I can confidently say that fans of Randy Singer novels are going to love this story, and I am sure that new fans are going to flock to the tale as well. I highly recommend this book and award it 5 out of 5 stars.

An advanced reader's copy of the book has been provided courtesy of the publisher, Tyndale, for the purposes of this unbiased review.
