Landon had paid for his crime. He had served his time – even studying for his law degree while he was in prison. But getting a job practicing law would have been impossible if it weren’t for the chance given him by old timer Harry McNaughton. So now Landon has a job in a law firm, his wife has stood by him and he has his daughter. Life should have been perfect – until his associates start dying and someone tries to wreck his marriage with an innocent friendship. Life is definitely much worse than it should be in Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales.
Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales
Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales is an intriguing tale of murder, deceit, loyalty and friendship. I love to read a book that doesn’t have a predictable, easy outcome. This book is a clean read. This is the kind of book that gives you the satisfaction of a good story line without having to wade through any language or scenes. There are Christian overtones in the them but this is not a preachy book.
About the Book
Landon Reed is an ex-quarterback convicted of organizing a points-shaving scheme. During his time in prison, he found forgiveness and faith and earned his law degree. Now he longs for an opportunity to prove his loyalty and worth. Be careful what you ask for.
Harry McNaughton is one of the founding partners of McNaughton & Clay—and the only lawyer willing to take a chance employing an ex-con-turned-lawyer. Though Landon initially questions Harry’s ethics and methods, it’s clear the crusty old lawyer has one of the most brilliant legal minds Landon has ever encountered. The two dive into preparing a defense for one of the highest-profile murder trials Virginia Beach has seen in decades when Harry is gunned down in what appears to be a random mugging. Then two more lawyers are killed when the firm’s private jet crashes. Authorities suspect someone has a vendetta against McNaughton & Clay, leaving Landon and the remaining partner as the final targets.
As Landon struggles to keep the firm together, he can’t help but wonder, is the plot related to a shady case from McNaughton & Clay’s past, or to the murder trial he’s neck-deep in now? And will he survive long enough to find out?
