Fall Reads: Deadly Proof by Rachel Dylan

Bethany House; 318 pages; Blog Tour; Buy Link

Now available from Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group, is the legal thriller Deadly Proof, book one in the Atlantic Justice series, by Rachel Dylan.

The novel centers on Kate Sullivan, a lawyer who finds herself as the lead council for a corporate cover-up lawsuit against Mason Pharmaceutical. Yes, this is a big case for her, but she wants to get justice of the victims whose lives were ruined the company's new drug. The case seemed to be going fine, well, until things become deadly. A "whistleblower" for the case turns up dead, and Kate could be the next victim.

This brings in Landon James into the story. He's a former Army Ranger turned private investigator who joins the case to handle security for Kate. His goal is to keep Kate safe, so the case can go trial. The last thing he wanted to do was to fall in love with her.

Final Thoughts

Though I do love to read a good thriller, for some reason or another, I don't read very many legal thrillers. I was well aware that Deadly Proof was a legal thriller/mystery when I signed up to review it through Litfuse Publicity. I'm not for sure what attracted me to want to read the title; maybe it was the cover art or the blurb.

I had almost forgot to read the novel, as I've been busy getting things ready for Thanksgiving Day; so I had to read the it late tonight.

Enough with my ramblings, lets get on with my final thoughts.

Deadly Proof is a fast-paced, well-written legal thriller that I couldn't put down. I wasn't exactly in the mood to read when I started to read this novel, but I was hooked by the end of the first paragraph. The author has a wonderful way with descriptions, so the narration-style appealed to me right away. Both the main characters, Kate and Landon, are interesting and the romance between them seemed real.

Overall, I enjoyed reading Deadly Proof and I recommend it to other readers.
