In the biggest case of her career, attorney Kate Sullivan is tapped as lead counsel to take on Mason Pharmaceutical because of a corporate cover-up related to its newest drug. After a whistleblower dies, Kate knows the stakes are much higher than her other lawsuits.
Former Army Ranger turned private investigator Landon James is still haunted by mistakes made while serving overseas. Trying to forget the past, he is hired by Kate to look into the whistleblower’s allegation and soon suspects that the company may be engaging in a dangerous game for profit. He also soon finds himself falling for this passionate and earnest young lawyer.
Determined not to make the same mistakes, he’s intent on keeping Kate safe, but as the case deepens, it appears someone is willing to risk everything–even murder–to keep the case from going to trial.
I thought I would give the legal thriller genre a try! Deadly Proof by Rachel Dylan is the first book in her new Atlanta Justice series. I was drawn to the plot of this book instantly. There were plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing throughout the book. I enjoyed Kate as a character. She was hard working, smart and brave but also suffered from depression which I felt gave her character a genuineness that helped the reader connect with her. I felt as thought the book moved at a slower pace until the last half and then it really picked up. It was very tense at the end and the story did not dissapoint in its conclusion. I think I may stick to my historical fiction and romance genres, but I did enjoy this book and I am glad I branched out and tried soemthing from a different genre! Fans of legal thrillers will really enjoy Deadly Proof!
