    1. This first book in the new Atlanta Justice series by Rachel Dylan is superb There isn t a lot of Christian Legal Fiction out there so I was thrilled when Bethany House picked up this author as I d already grown to love her independent books and Love Inspired Suspense books.One of the biggest reasons I was excited about this series was the fact that it is a series of three books with female lawyer main characters So many of our books are centered on the hero in the books so it is nice to have a s [...]


    2. by Andrea Renee CoxWhen I saw the endorsement on the front cover of this book, I knew I wanted to read it How could I not when it s touted to rival a John Grisham novel I wish I had a bunch of positive things to say about this book, but I cannot pretend I enjoyed it This is an extremely difficult review to write, because I dislike being negative about any author s hard work I know how many hours and emotions and commitment go into writing a novel, and I appreciate the passion and effort and time [...]

    6. My interest was immediately piqued by this author when I saw the cover and read the synopsis I like a good legal thriller, and I had high hopes for this one Unfortunately, this book fell short for me While I didn t love all the legality, I actually enjoyed those bits than the other story included with Landon and Kate Their relationship seemed very contrived, and I would have liked to see of their life outside the whole case Whenever there were normal scenes, all their struggles were talked abo [...]


    7. I have such a book hangover Stayed up until three in the morning because I could not put Deadly Proof down So I m all frazzled nerves and discombobulated brain but valiantly trying to put into words how good this book is And I don t even like legal thrillers Mostly because I get so confused by the legal jargon But Dylan didn t lose me once She deftly wove layman descriptions into the technical bits so I totally understood what was happening, why certain procedures were so important and boy, did [...]


    8. Fast paced drama keeps the reader glued to the pages, as well as quickly escalating high stakes legal implications and hard hitting realistic fiction The closer the case gets to trial, the danger lead counsel Kate Sullivan faces Can she bring a satisfying resolution to court before it s too late I ve never read a legal thriller suspense before because the subject never interested me until I had opportunity to read Deadly Proof I thought why not give it a try I m so glad I did because it s one I [...]


    9. My thoughts Legal thrillers aren t usually my cup of tea This one gripped me from the first page I was fascinated with the behind the scenes working of the lawsuit I loved Kate s determination to get to the truth I loved that she wanted justice for her clients The underhandedness of the defendant was intriguing as well Because it made wonder exactly how far the corruption went The dynamic between Kate and Landon was interesting I wasn t too sure I liked them as a couple, but they did grow on me [...]


    10. This is my first read from Rachel Dylan, and I was definitely impressed Page turning suspense from start to finish, great plot, good characters, and an ending I never saw coming I particularly liked the courtroom and behind the scenes drama The premise of a civil lawsuit against a drug company for side effects of a drug was so appropriate for today s happenings The manipulations and outright lies by the drug company were not the least bit surprising This was definitely an edge of your seat read, [...]


    11. I thoroughly enjoyed this legal thriller The author made me feel as if I was in a law firm, trying to build a strategy, wade through documents, and work out how to win a case It felt very realistic Along with the legal drama, I thought that the suspense and danger were layered into the story nicely.Overall, I was impressed with the reality of how a law firm works I could also feel the enormity of power that a huge corporation can wield, especially with the right connections and legal backing The [...]


    12. Thank you to Rachel Dylan, Bethany House, and Netgalley for the free copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.So this is the first legal thriller I ve read that has a spiritual angle The attorney, Kate, goes to church, and talks about her relationship with God to her PI, Landon, who is a battle hardened Iraqi veteran She s straightlaced, positive, a team player, but racked with depressive episodes and guilt over self destructive behaviors as a young adult Her case is against Big Phar [...]

    14. If you enjoy a read with you heart in your throat, this one will probably do it You never knew when the next shoe would drop, and just when you feel safe, boom or grab People are murdered or just disappear, and why, greed seems to be the answer here.The author kept me on my toes, and I felt like I was reading something that was in the paper, there is often a lawsuit against a drug company, and what drug doesn t seem to come with warnings Surprises abound right up until the end, never would have [...]

    17. I find it fascinating to read about the inner workings of legal procedures as a case comes to trial It doesn t matter if the main story is about the prosecution s side or that of the defendant It is interesting Of course, I don t understand the terms being used, but the author s ability to write about how information is gathered and presented and what is and is not allowed in court is certainly evidenced in Deadly Proof as practicing attorney and author Rachel Dylan takes us into the world where [...]


    18. The Deadly Proof Is in the Reading Pudding It s a WinnerLegal thrillers can be either too over dramatized to be believable or too full of legal mumbo jumble to be enjoyable Rachel Dylan, however, is than just a former lawyer, she s a top notch author With just enough action and intrigue to keep the pace ever increasing and the right balance of characterization and expert research, this book grips you from the first page and leaves you collapsed in a book drunk stupor at the end.I cannot believe [...]

    20. I enjoy a hint of suspense, but when I realized that this book was set at a law firm and the storyline was primarily legal, I wasn t so sure I would enjoy it I am happy to say that I was dead wrong as my rating hints I thoroughly enjoyed this read It was very educational without making me feel like I was reading something completely out of my element I actually enjoyed everything with the court cases and found the information very creatively woven throughout the entire story.Kate was a character [...]


    21. This book got off to a bit of a slow start for me Not sure why, but it took me a few days of light readingen I was hooked Once the hook was in, the book went with us while running all errandseven if I might only get a page or two read That night, I just couldn t put it down, the hook kept me up till 1 30 AM no I didn t fight that hook hard, no point Both sides of the case are shown here, which isn t common in this genre Not sure if I always want to know both sides, but it was a refreshing change [...]

    25. 2.5 3 starsI m not really sure how it escaped my notice upon requesting this book that it was a legal thriller, but somehow it did, so that was a bit of a surprise upon beginning the story While I generally don t read a lot of legal suspense novels, I didn t hate this one There were times when I felt a little lost because of the legal setting speech etc but it wasn t terrible for me.Somebody who enjoys this genre won t be lost at all There are two female characters that I literally couldn t tell [...]


    26. Kate Sullivan had no idea what she was getting herself into when she took on the Mason Pharmaceutical MPC litigation Sure, she knew it was big thousands of cases had been filed on behalf of victims who had died or been injured taking their migraine drug, and as lead counsel, she was determined to get the justice they deserved But was she really prepared for just how far someone would go to make sure the truth never came to light The key to unlocking this case for Kate is in the discovery phase, [...]


    27. I m thrilled some legal suspense books have popped up in the Christian market this year Admittedly, they ve probably been around for a while and I m just finding them so maybe I should say I m thrilled to read some of the new legal suspense books this year John Grisham books used to be a favorite of mine, and cleaner options with faith threads running through them are a needed alternative.Even though Rachel Dylan has published several books in the Love Inspired Suspense line, I wasn t aware of h [...]


    28. This is a fairly fast paced, well written, suspenseful legal thriller with a light touch of romance The legal terms are well explained for those who aren t familiar with legalese and it was interesting that we got to read about both sides of the case I think it added to the drama of the whole story line.I liked how Kate had such a strong work ethic along with a compassionate heart for the people she is trying to get justice for It is encouraging that in spite of her personal issues she keeps her [...]


    29. What a fabulous book Even though I ve been time poor lately, once I began to read, it was almost impossible to put down I couldn t sleep last night, so around 2.30am I hopped up, put the kettle on to boil, then climbed into my comfy armchair, and finished off the second half of the book while sipping on my tea However, I found it annoyingly necessary to keep getting up to make another cuppa Deadly Proof is a legal thriller that will keep you turning pages late into the night because you will hav [...]


    30. With everything going on in the news today, it seems there are so many subject to make the premise of a novel for inspiring authors I was immediately drawn to Rachel Dylan s latest novel, Deadly Proof, because her main character Kate Sullivan is a lawyer drawn to help her clients against those with money to finance a winning defense team It was always my own personal desire to do just that, become a lawyer to fight for those who couldn t afford a higher price attorney In this novel, Kate is wor [...]
