It's hard to top some of the wonderful reviews already posted, but I just finished reading Reasonable Fear and once again Mr Pratt kept me reading late into the night (a work night at that) and I absolutely loved it. If there is one thing that I tell friends, whom I've recommended Pratt's novels to, it's to expect the unexpected in any Joe Dillard story. Well, when I got to Part 3, I had no idea how the author would pull off the ending of the novel,but he did it and left me wanting more.

Joe Dillard is a wonderful and complex character and I can't wait to read what life brings for him and his family in future novels.

Mr Pratt - Thanks for hours of reading enjoyment.....can't wait until your next novel is released, it will be on my Kindle the day it is.

This is the second book that I have read in the 'Joe Dillard' series, the other one was 'Blood Money'. Well this story started off pretty much what I expected. Three girls murdered, the suspects are 'rich'. So when Joe starts investigating, the strings of political powers are pulled, so not only is Joe fighting trying to investigate, he has the governer on down telling him to lay off. Not bad so far, wait for it.
The suspects are tied in with cocaine dealers from Columbia, and now Joe has to gather up all his family, go to an old military buddy, the buddy loads Joe up with all sorts of guns, mortars, ammo, and away Joe goes. And there goes the story, (rolling of the eyes).
Sometimes you hit one out of the park, or strike out when you're not looking. I'm keeping the faith and will read another installment of Joe Dillard. Kisses.

I have just finished the third book in the Dillard series. In fact I read all three in three days, yes they are that good. Never slowed down, never bogged. Some of the time-lines threw me but never the story or the characters. I have read every John Sanford, every James Lee Burke, Michael Connelly, Earl Stanley Garner, so you know where I'm coming from if you've read them. I am NOT saying Pratt is better, but the Dillard stories and the characters Pratt creates are almost that good.
These stories are entertainment, it's fiction and intrigue. I would recommend these books to any fan of a good multilevel legal/police procedural stories, and is good that there are several more Dillard books to get to, so excuse me while I hit BUY on my Kindle.

UPDATE: this series fails and dies here on the 4th book. My review was based on the first 3 books and my review was misplaced here. I agree with the reviewer who stated totally irrational. Sorry Mr. Pratt, good luck w/# 6, I preview # 5 and won't gamble on it. Time to give Dillard a rest..

I read and loved the first 3 books in this series and didn't like this one at all. The author has turned a likeable character into a "holier than thou" egomaniac. The other characters in the book were not believable and I found the ending disappointing. I am hoping the next one is better.

This outing isn't quite as good as the previous three Joe Dillard legal thrillers, but it was a compelling page-turner none-the-less. I was sad to see that Pratt's book wasn't being published by a major publisher, and wondered why more readers hadn't caught onto the series. I hope to see Joe Dillard again, but this time I hope he spends more time in a courtroom, and less time acting like an action-hero.

This is the fourth book in Scott Pratt's Joe Dillard series. I have read the previous three in the series, and each book develops the characters a little more. Even though each novel stands on its own, the author has a knack for reminding the reader of the past histories of the characters that significantly adds to the plot development. I look forward to the next installment in the series. The whole series is a great read.

Yuck! I had read the third book first and was delighted to find a good legal thriller. So I bought the 5 book set. The first book is nowhere near as good as the third one and needed a lot of editing. The author writes well but the plot was over complicated and some parts needed to be edited out.

The second book was far better than the first book, although still not as good as the third. But trouble reared its ugly head when I read the 4th book (Reasonable Fear). This 4th book veered from a legal thriller into a spy/murder/revenge/bloody book. Further, there were waaaay too many typos, mispelled and mistyped words and repeated words. I felt that perhaps the author had too much success with the other 3 books and put this one out in a hurry, without someone to proof read it and he just pandered into blood and gore, which is a shame because the basic character of Joe Dillard is good, a well thought out and enjoyable "hero".

Hope the 5th one is better.

This is a simple book that starts with the bodies of three strippers being found in a lake and County DA Joe Dillard gets involved on page one and deals with the mystery till the final page. Pratt is a good writer, but this thriller is all action and not much else. It doesn't take you long to figure out how the book is going to shape up and the only surprise is that the ending requires a big dose of disbelief suspension. There are no real subplots. There are too many plot conveniences that exist only to make certain scenarios possible. And the ending leaves a few strings dangling. Good action-packed writing but a weak plot line. In my book, only an average effort.
