In Good Faith (Joe Dillard #2) Reviews
Book #2 in the legal mystery/thriller series by author Scott Pratt deals with ritual murder and the occult in Tennessee. Falling somewhat short of his debut book " An Innocent Client", Pratt may have jumped the shark by embodying the evil antagonist with supernatural powers. Regardless, it was an interesting and enjoyable read mostly because I liked the development of his protagonist attorney, now Prosecutor, Joe Dillard and his family.
This is my 2nd book by this author. I find him to be a very good writer. His work in interesting and really engaging. I found this book hard to put down. I can't wait to read the next one.
Joe Dillard, the hero of Scott Pratt's "An Innocent Client," returns in the series second book, "In good Faith," a tense thriller that explores several interesting themes on its way to a nail-biting climax.
Thanks to the financial windfall he achieved in "Client," Dillard has retired from criminal defense work, with which he was already disillusioned when we first met him. Retirement doesn't sit well with Dillard, however, who finds himself back at the courthouse, watching the murder trial of a c ...more
I love me some modern urban fantasy, and I love gritty legal procedurals, but I do NOT love dropping random supernatural magic into what, up to this point, had been a reality-based world. Keep the E. S. P. and mutant electrical powers for X-men and out of Southern legal courtroom dramas.
This is the second book in the series featuring Joe Dillard, who started as a criminal defense attorney in the first, An Innocent Client. This time out, he's switched to the dark side; burned out by his experiences defending guilty clients, Joe has accepted a job in the prosecutor's office. He'll make less money, but the opportunity to make amends for getting all those baddies of, he believes, will make up the difference.
He learns early on, though, that the office is no bed of roses; he's forced ...more
The second in the Joe Dillard series. I very much enjoyed this book. It has multiple plot lines and Dillard is, for my taste, perhaps too subject to violent rage (he really should be more used to Sarah's self-destructive tendencies,) and the suggested paranormal elements always make me gag; nevertheless, Pratt writes very well and can really tug at the heartstrings. His description of Joe's love for his wife and his support for her as she struggles with breast cancer and resultant chemotherapy i ...more
Love this series
I love the characters. I love the creative solutions to legal problems. I have fallen in love with Scott Pratt's writing. Off I go to Kindle store to buy the next in the series.
This is book two of the Joe Dillard series. In this book, Joe has quit his job as a defense attorney and has gone to work as a prosecutor for the State of Tennessee. A family is murdered at a rest stop by two teenagers and their leader, a girl called Natasha. Joe is prosecuting the boys but has been unable to find evidence on Natasha. Apparently, the teenagers are into Satan worship. There are problems in the prosecutor’s office with a possible crooked prosecutor. Meanwhile, on the home front, C ...more
