Deadly Justice, #1 Atlanta Justice, by Rachel Dylan

***** 5 stars

You Can Run, But You Can't Escape the Reach of Big Business...


Deadly Proof (Atlanta Justice, #1)by Kate Sullivan proves itself to be a thrilling book because it could actually happen. A case of big business being a boss unto itself, accountable to no one, especially not to those who may have been harmed by Mason Pharmaceutical's lust for money. And more money.

Kate Sullivan has been selected as head lawyer for the plaintiff group. Kate needs to win, for her career, her pride, but mostly because she wants to protect those who cannot protect themselves.

Kate's opponent, Ethan, a friend from law school, needs to win. It will keep HIS career on track, keep him living the high life, and maybe bring Mason on board as a heavyweight client.

This is a novel where the major characters play their roles, but kindly leave enough room for secondary characters to rise from obscurity and 
shine brightly. The lawyers both do amazing work; yet without the presence and actions of these supporting characters, the grand climax would never happen. 

I love that Kate holds fast to her faith in the presence of Landon's questions. She doesn't fumble around trying to answer with deep theological reasoning. Kate presents her thought, gives Landon time to process it, and lets the Lord do the work in Landon's heart.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. This in no way affected my opinions, for which I am solely responsible.
