Book Description

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?


Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Singer, the attorney-author of several solid legal thrillers, turns in another winner. Landon Reed used to be a football quarterback, until he fixed a couple of games to make some quick cash. He did his time, then went to law school, and now he’s joined a legal firm run by the affable Harry McNaughten, who is soon killed in a mugging gone wrong. When more members of the firm are killed, Landon suspects these are not random tragedies but deliberate acts of murder. Landon is deeply affected by the man’s death, and the reader shares his grief. As usual, Singer, also a pastor, nicely balances the crime drama with his exploration of Christian themes—in this case, exploring a man’s quest for redemption for past sins and the difficult decisions he must make when confronted with a choice between keeping his family safe and bringing a killer to justice. Singer’s many fans will be lining up to read this one. --David Pitt

4.0 out of 5 stars A first rate white collar crime plot. September 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
At first blush, it seems like Mitch Rapp meets a John Gresham hero. Singer does a great job in developing an intricate plot that really picks up steam as you turn the pages. One thing I enjoyed was the total lack of profanity. That was truly refreshing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe Singer's Best June 16, 2013
Format:Paperback
QUICK HIT - I'd call Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales Singer's best...but that wouldn't really do the rest of his books justice.

Landon Reed is finally getting his second chance in life. As a college quarterback, he was found guilty (and rightfully so) in a point-shaving scandal that landed him in jail. But prison didn't make Landon callous. Instead, the former football star found faith and forgiveness, completing his sentence and beginning a new mission in life. He marries his longtime girlfriend and mother of his child, finishes law school, and stumbles into a job with the notorious Harry McNaughten. McNaughten is equally contrasting amounts of hard-nosed cuss and soft old codger, the only one willing to hire an ex-con lawyer but also willing to put Landon through the ringer.

Things heat up quickly as McNaughten and Landon dive into a murder case that has more than its share of intrigue. Elias King had once been a high profile prosecutor, but after a turbulent political and legal season, he found himself a defense attorney at a less-glamorous but still very much respected law firm. Then came the accusations of insider trading. Then came the dead body of his lover, Erica Jensen. Then came the phone call to Harry McNaughten to take the case. And everything that follows is a whirlwind ride.

Over the years, Randy Singer has impressed me with the balance of complexity and readability in his novels. There are always five things going on, but the reader is never lost. And somehow everything twists around either thematically or structurally to tie together into one cohesive story.

Format:Paperback
Randy Singer is on my short list of must-read authors. His legal thrillers are riveting and thought-provoking and among the best books I've read in any genre. I knew from the title and the blurb that Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales would pack plenty of punch and Singer delivers in spades! Intriguing characters and an intricate plot riveted me from the opening pages and I was oblivious to all around me as I read. "Fascinating" doesn't even begin to do justice as a descriptor of this novel. It is prudent to read it as carefully as one might pore over a legal brief, as Singer adeptly weaves seemingly innocuous details into the story that become "aha moments" once the story is completed. The ending was perfection, and the epilogue. . .well, when you read it you'll know why I consider Randy Singer to be such a brilliant author! Don't miss this brand-new release!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting legal thriller May 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read all of Randy Singer's legal thrillers and loved them all. So I was anxiously waiting his newest and downloaded it immediately on my Kindle. This one does not disappoint. Best one yet. Loved seeing Mitchell again from a previous series. Kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way thru and came to a satisfying end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed the book August 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the book and as a Christian I appreciated the epilogue. A few unexpected twists. The actions taken by the son and teammate in thwarting the villains was realistic and believable; not always the case.

3.0 out of 5 stars A solid Randy Singer tale, but... December 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
3 1/2 stars. A solid Randy Singer tale that's certainly worth reading. I did feel that the suspense wasn't as high in this story as his others, partly because so much is given away in the back cover copy. We're told right off the bat that several lawyers die in the firm, but it doesn't happen until half way through the book. Only after that mark did the tension really start to rise. That said, Singer handled the intricacies of the law and his issues in this novel with a deft but never heavy hand. Only reason I didn't give it 4 stars is the tension issue mentioned and a few scenes I wish would've been dramatized instead of summarized. Overall though, still great Singer! He's got the writing chops for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars All time favorite from Singer August 16, 2013
Format:Audible Audio Edition
If you are looking for a great legal suspense novel, then look no more -- Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales is the book for you. Randy Singer, who usually tells a wonderfully twisting story with surprises aplenty, out did himself on this book. It is easily the best I have read by him.

Landon Reed, convicted of point shaving while an SEC star quarterback, is a recently graduated lawyer looking for a firm to hire him. With his past and the long memories of football fans, Landon is having a hard time finding a job and escaping his past. But Harry McNaughton, a gruff, old school litigator, takes a chance, and Landon finds himself in the midst of a case of a career while navigating family obligations, dodging bullets and cleaning up smear campaigns in the process.

Randy Singer is often compared to John Grisham, and his style is certainly similar. But Singer has a voice of his own, including a subtle faith message and cutting edge plots that do not suffer from obscenity or graphic adult scenes. Singer writes a riveting suspense novel that focuses on the ins and outs of the legal system, portrays characters realistically, and employs enough twists, turns and surprises to keep a mystery fan scrambling to keep up. Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales kept me guessing right up to the end and had some wonderful surprises I never saw coming. I liked everything about this book. And since this was an audiobook version, I found the narrator added, rather than detracted, from the reading. I would highly recommend Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales to anyone.

Highly Recommended.
