Book Description

Three young women are found floating in a lake.

The suspect is one of the richest and most powerful men in Tennessee.

"Reasonable Fear" is the fourth of the bestselling Joe Dillard series offered by Scott Pratt. In this novel, Dillard has become the district attorney in Northeast Tennessee. He becomes heavily involved in the investigation with Sheriff Leon Bates and soon realizes that he is up against an enemy that he has never before encountered -- someone so rich and so powerful that the course of justice could be altered by money and political influence. But when bodies start showing up in his driveway and his family is threatened with termination, Dillard must ask himself a previously unthinkable question. His life, and the lives of his family, depend on the answer.

2.0 out of 5 stars 1 -3 is a charm, 4 + 5 miss go amuck May 27, 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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..

5.0 out of 5 stars Expect the unexpected! March 3, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 4th book January 28, 2014
By north1
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great book turns into A giant letdown December 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What started off as another riveting book in the Joe Dillard series turned into a giant letdown whet part 3, the climax of the book was riddled with Chinese writing on virtually every second or third page leaving the reader to guess what happened on the previous page where all the action was happening. The reader was left to guess what had happened and piece it together with the next page. Most every thrilling (I am guessing) event was missing. Who died and how are left to guessing as well as details are opened to guessing. The first page of the second to last chapter...same thing. Why did Joe drop the charges and who is still alive are a guess.

If I had not already purchased the next books I would never read these again. As I have many other books and authors to read to try and get this huge disappointment out of my system.

With disgust,

NEIL A Corvene

5.0 out of 5 stars Not to be missed January 12, 2013
By Linda
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fast-Paced But All Too Predictable October 5, 2011
By zorba
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable but Light June 30, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreasonable plot March 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This time Dillard found himself in a story that was so unbelievable I lost all interest in Dillard's survival. Knowing that super-prosecutor would no doubt prevail in the end that was so hyperbolic I was hoping he would fail and die along with rest of his family.
