This story, like the previous ones in the series will keep you at the edge of your seat through out the book. I would have given it five stars had it not at times in some episodes you have to suspend beliefs. It's hard to imagine a lawyer in real life finds himself taking part in law enforcement's covert operations. Also the motive for the killings of each the judges is not very clear and not explained at all. All we know is some of these judges were either perverts like the killer's mastermind or had written a judgment that saw other accused perverts escaped punishment. So readers may finish reading the book feeling there's something lacking in the story. But all in all it is a good thriller and Scott Pratt writes excellent legal mystery.
Waiting anxiously for the next installment, and I truly hope Mr Pratt keeps Mrs Dillard safe and well because I want my hero, Joe Dillard, to be a very happy man doing what he does best ... in court. And less on vigilante works.
In this entry, we're again treated to less a courtroom adventure or mystery and more a rather static pursuit. After what starts out to be somewhat of an intriguing tale, the book loses its intrigue. We soon know who the bad guy is, and it's not really a surprise either. We know that he'll be brought down before the book ends because they always are brought down. We just need the book to fill in some details of how it's done.
As it turns out, once more it's done through a person who acts like a deus ex machina after some of the regulars botch things up a bit. It's not really clear how the bad guy is so amazingly adept, but it's needed to add a bit of tension and I mean just a bit too because we know he isn't going to prevail.
Meanwhile back at the Dillard Place, his wife is still gravely ill and her illness along with what she has to go through in this book and past books to try to survive cancer is among the most moving aspects of the series.
I strongly suggest that if you have an interest in this book that you start the series at volume one. A great deal of how much one may enjoy this entry depends on how much you have invested in the family and friends of Joe Dillard.
In sum, an another entertaining entry in a terrific series.
This was an easy fast paced read--but beware there is a lot of dementia, heartache, lurid acts of sex and murder, and downright disturbing characters flitting throughout the pages of this novel. While somewhat suspenseful and certainly a mind bender, I don't think this is Pratt at his best. I like a more well thought out book full of courtroom suspense and more plot twists so evident in other Pratt novels. Few authors conquer courtroom drama because its so much easier to write books like this one. As we lost other great suspense writers to easily thrown together plots without much depth, I hope Pratt will rethink his approach and go back to the well researched in-depth writing that drew to him so many loyal fans. Though we eagerly await his next novel I hope Scott Pratt will slow down and return to his former glory. Still, I remain a loyal reader and hope Pratt doesn't settle into a Grishamesques attitude expecting all readers to blindly follow him forth. I would wait a little longer for his next novel and have it well thought through and written. It will soon be time to retire Joe and I look forward to other protagonists with warts who nevertheless capture our hearts and souls. Keep em coming, Scott Pratt.....
