Présentation de l'éditeur

A family of four is slaughtered in rural Tennessee.

Two weeks later, a retired high school principal and his wife are brutally slain.

Two Satan-worshipping teens stand accused.

It’s up to prosecutor Joe Dillard to convict them. A former defense attorney who spent way too much time defending people he knew were guilty, Joe is determined to win this case to atone for his past. But an evil young woman named Natasha is responsible for the slayings and Joe knows it. Natasha is walking around free because the two boys who have been arrested are too terrified to implicate her. Now Joe must risk everything -- including his family's safety and his own life -- to bring an evil murderer to justice.

"This book was so intense it was scary." -- M. Cottrill, Dallas, Tex.

"The book ends up moving along like a thriller should; at breakneck speed." -- N. Bilmes, Vernon, Conn.

"This author is a must read if you love attorney and courtroom thrillers." -- Kenneth J. George, Detroit, Mich.

"Better than the old Grisham." -- Tompat, Melbourne, Fla.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Joe Dillard turnaround ... 29 août 2009
Par Alex S - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
If you read An Innocent Client (Joe Dillard), you will know Joe Dillard as an attorney who wanted to get out of defending guilty clients. As this book opens, Joe has made the move and is trying to decide what to do with the rest of his life. As a genuine "good guy," Joe ends up becoming a prosecuting attorney - going after the very people he used to defend.

While his original intent was to never seek the death penalty, his very first case involved a crime so horrific - the deliberate murder of an entire family - that anything else would have been a slap on the wrist.

His first novel explored what it means to be a defense attorney to the guilty - this one involves more of an understanding of what it means to be evil, and to be one of those who embrace it. The defendants are a part of a satanic cult who attempt to put a curse on Joe. Joe himself must decide what he believes, not only about evil and evil forces in the world, but also about that which is genuinely good.

In so doing, the author leaves the reader with the same question. If there is evil in the world, is there something bigger that is good?

I enjoyed his first novel, and appreciated this second one even more. He has a way of drawing characters that make them real, and a way of raising questions without giving pat answers. I'm looking forward to future novels ...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another great one by this author 19 août 2009
Par N. Gargano - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
This is my second book by this author, it is the second book with the Joe Dillard character. First let me say, I think it may be more enjoyable if you have not read the first one, to read it first. Actually I am kind of nutty about that, reading the books in order, but I think in this case, the characters are more enriched by having spent time with them in the first book.
I was kind of surprised to see this in the store, I just came upon it and I am glad I did. Normally I can follow my favorites or authors I know I want to read by seeing their book in hard cover, I did not know this book was out, and I'm so glad I saw it. ( I guess I better check to see if the author has a web page, so I won't miss out on another.) Anyway, it is a great story, and again, I like how the main character, a lawyer, always has more than one thing on his plate, instead of "the one big case", I mean isn't that more realistic? I dont' know, it is just interesting that way. I would like to warn any other readers though, there is a little supernatural, kind of out there part of the book, but I didn't mind it, I loved it actually, but I just thought you should be warned. Some people may be turned off by that.
Why aren't his books in hardback?

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A little too much "woo woo" in the plot for me 19 juillet 2009
Par Sandy Kay - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
3.5 stars

This is the second book in the Joe Dillard series (An Innocent Client (Joe Dillard) is the first). This one arrived before the first one and I didn't want to wait so I read them out of order. I think it would have been better to wait because this book seems to give spoilers as to what happened in the first book.

At the beginning of this book, Joe Dillard has been out of the practice of law for a year. He is watching the trial of one of his former clients (who admitted his guilt to Dillard after his acquittal) and the guy is acquitted again after a poor performance by the assistant district attorney. Dillard's wife suggests he apply to work for this district attorney and he is hired to prosecute violent felonies. His first case starts before his official first day at work: the gruesome murder of a couple and their two young children. In addition to the murder case, Joe tries a statutory rape case and deals with some family crises.

The book had the promise of being pretty good, but a few things bothered me enough to lower my opinion of it. Most importantly, the author threw in some "woo woo" paranormal stuff into what could have been a good straightforward legal thriller plot without it. I thought that aspect detracted from, rather than added to, the plot and the book would have been much stronger without it. Second, too many of the characters were dirty or unscrupulous in one way or the other. It is possible this relates to something in the acknowledgements section of the book or it may be foreshadowing of future books in the series, but it bothered me. Finally, the courtroom scenes are not as well-crafted as in other legal thrillers I've read. I hope this will improve in any future books in the series as well because that is what separates a good legal thriller from a regular crime thriller.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Utterly spoiled with parapsychology silliness 28 décembre 2013
Par vuurklip - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Good story but the belief in telepathy, telekinesis and clairvoyance spoils it. Joe and his family are just too good to be true and the Satanists are just too terrible. The ending with its last minute rescue is a bit of a cliché. That identical twins can be so different is hard to believe and contrary to twin studies.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Fatally flawed 23 mai 2013

An earlier review decried the "woo-woo" element in this novel. I cringed when I read the review, having just finished An Innocent Client and found it passably engaging.

Joe Dillard is a fatally flawed character. In the first two novels that feature him, we see him commit two legally indefensible felonies. We understand why he did it. We sympathize with him as far as motive is concerned. But he has not paid the piper, and that's troubling to me as a reader. Is this man above the law? Perhaps we get to see him pay for his crimes (I'm sorry, they were crimes, no matter how righteous he felt carrying them out) in future novels. There are three that I have not read.

For no discernible reason, "In Good Faith" includes plot points that are supernatural. No other explanation is offered for what happens in several key moments. It's not enough to make this a "supernatural thriller," but it is enough to remove it from being a compelling legal thriller. Legal thrillers strive to explain their mysteries, not chalk them up to ... can it be... Satan!?

Every book has a typo or two, but for some reason they stood out here. "Accept" is used in one sentence instead of "except." The word "people" is missing the first "e" in another section. I don't know why the typos bothered me in this book when such things are natural (bet you find at least one in this review!)

I do think the author needs to make up his mind and decide whether to tell his stories in the first person or the third person. The constant back-and-forth is distracting, and as a reader, I gain nothing from it. An all-knowing narrator can tell me what Joe Dillard is thinking as well as Joe can. I don't need his "I" to see what he sees.

One more thing: on the subject of authenticity, the author errs by referring to Jehovah's Witness gathering places as "church." Jehovah's Witnesses would never talk about going to church. Their meeting places are Kingdom Halls, and it was distracting to me to see Pratt consistently get this wrong.

I'll be reading the next book in the series, but I'm really hoping to see some consequences for his legally unacceptable decisions, and I do hope I've seen the last of the supernatural nonsense (which was enough to ruin this book for me to the point that I cannot recommend it).
