About the Author
Scott Pratt’s first novel, An Innocent Client—the first book in his Joe Dillard series—was chosen as a finalist for the Mystery Readers International’s Macavity Award. Born in Michigan and raised in Tennessee, he earned a bachelor of arts degree in English from East Tennessee State University and a doctor of jurisprudence degree from the University of Tennessee. He is a veteran of the United States Air Force. He resides in northeast Tennessee with his wife, his two dogs, and a parrot.

In "Justice Redeemed" Darren Street is a successful criminal defense attorney who, early in his career, successfully had the 19 year old conviction of his uncle overturned. He did this by proving the prosecutor, Ben Clancey, had fabricated evidence to railroad the uncle. Street then dedicated himself to ensuring the prosecutor lost his next bid for reelection.
Street has gained the attention of Jalen Jordan who, we learn, is a serial sexual molester and killer of young boys. Accompanied by his mother, Jordan appears at Street's office, presenting him with $50 thousand in cash as a retainer to defend him in a routine traffic stop he anticipates will develop into much more. He makes it clear to Street that he knows details about his personal life, including the name of his young son, where his son attends school, etc. Street tosses Jordan out of his office, refuses to take his case and vows to kill him if he comes near his son.
Ultimately, Jordan is killed and Street charged. The killing occurred in a national park, making it a federal crime. The federal prosecutor? Yep, Ben Clancey. [While perhaps not quite as evil, I suspect the legal system has more than its share of prosecutors like Ben Clancey who, at minimum,, cut corners to achieve convictions.]
You must read the book to learn of the next twists and turns. You will not be disappointed.
My greatest disappointment is I must now wait for Pratt to write another novel, be it in the Joe Dillard series or another stand alone. Whichever it is, I do hope he is working on it now.
This is another outstanding book by an outstanding author!
Top international reviews
1 - The book gives an insight into the manner in which inmates are treated in US prisons. Very harrowing and not becoming of a civilised state.
2 - The defence attorney constantly made objections when a witness was asked by the prosecutor to tell the court what the defendant said. How is this hearsay?
Am looking forward to reading the other Darren Street books.
After reading two thirds of this book I realised my mistake, Darren Street is as compelling as Joe Dillard.
Some of the background went on a bit and some parts are a bit rushed but all in all I would buy the next book to see what happens to Darren Street.
