Standing for what's right could cost her everything
Tapped as lead counsel in a corporate cover-up lawsuit against Mason Pharmaceutical, Kate Sullivan knows this case could make her career. What really drives her, though, is getting justice for the victims whose lives were ruined by the company's dangerous new drug. But when a whistleblower turns up dead, it paints a target on the back of everyone involved.
Former Army Ranger turned Private Investigator Landon James steps in to handle security for Kate. He's still haunted by mistakes in his past and is determined never to let something like that happen again. But it soon appears someone is willing to do anything -- even commit murder -- to keep this case from going to trial.
As danger closes in, Landon can't help bu admire Kate's courage and resolve -- but will her determination not to back down become too great of a risk?
I have such a book hangover! Stayed up until three in the morning because I could not put Deadly Proof down. So I'm all frazzled nerves and discombobulated brain but valiantly trying to put into words how good this book is. And I don't even like legal thrillers. Mostly because I get so confused by the legal jargon. But Dylan didn't lose me once. She deftly wove layman descriptions into the technical bits so I totally understood what was happening, why certain procedures were so important and boy, did I learn a lot about the legal system. All seamleslly blended in with the suspense and romance.
I am definitely a champion of the underdog and so my emotions were immediately engaged since Kate is taking on a big chunk of Corporate America -- a disgustingly corrupt pharmaceutical company that deserves to be taken down. Betrayal and intrigue and danger soon follow and then, when Kate hires on PI Landon things really get interesting.
My toes still haven't uncurled fully. The romance is stupendous. Slow and deliberate, from colleagues to friends to...cue the toe-curling swoons! In fact, Rachel Dylan's style reminds me very much of an early Dee Henderson. Has that same kind of balance and detail, so a reader doesn't feel hurried. It's easy to stay anchored in the moment and just let the story unfold around you.
And I'm thrilled to report that this is the first book in the Atlanta Justice series so there are more compelling reads ahead for us and I can't wait!
