Review: Deadly Proof

Deadly Proof by Rachel Dylan
Reviewed by: Pam Graber
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Bethany House
Publication Date: September 5, 2017

If you’re looking for a fast-paced, legal thriller to add to your TBR list, Deadly Proof by Rachel Dylan should be right at the top of your stack! This book is packed with legal intrigue, swirling emotions and strong faith.

In the midst of the biggest trial of her career, danger stalks attorney Kate Sullivan. As the attacks against her escalate from tire slashing to physical threats, can she keep her cool long enough to get justice for her clients in a clash against Big Pharma? Mason Pharmaceuticals’ newest drug has ruined too many lives to let them continue unchecked but can Kate find proof of corporate wrong-doing as the company stone-walls her investigation? When a corporate whistle-blower is found murdered, Kate’s world begins to spiral out of her control. No one involved is willing to talk. How can she find the truth?

Landon James, former Army Ranger, is now working private investigation. When Kate brings him on to help with her case, he immediately sees that she needs more than an investigator. She needs protection, too. As he steps into the role of security consultant and works to uncover something Kate can use as she prepares for her hearing, he sees Kate’s integrity and strong sense of ethics and is attracted to her strong faith. Her beauty doesn’t hurt, either. Haunted by a mistake he made in the midst of war, Landon feels unworthy of anyone’s love and most especially God’s love. Can he begin to see God as Kate sees Him – ever present, ever caring – and take the small steps toward God that his heart needs in order to heal? Can he keep Kate safe when it appears that someone out there is willing to harm her in order to win the case?

Wow! I was so impressed as I read this book with Ms. Dylan’s knowledge of the legal system. I learned more about corporate law than I ever realized was there, from both the plaintiff side of the aisle and the defendant side. The strategies were intricate, some stealthy but always intriguing. The book sent me on a roller-coaster of emotions. I read a LOT of suspense and I felt that this one ranks right up there with some of the best I’ve read. The “twist” at the end completely surprised me (and that’s ALL I’m going to say about it!) I’m looking forward with great anticipation to Book 2! I wonder if Ms. Dylan will be telling Mia’s story, Sophie’s story, Cooper’s story, Noah’s story or even Ethan’s story? OR, maybe she’s bringing in someone altogether new! Can’t wait to see!

Rated PG: The suspense is pretty intense for the very young reader.
