Deadly Proof by Rachel Dylan
In the biggest case of her career, attorney Kate Sullivan is tapped as lead counsel to take on Mason Pharmaceutical because of a corporate cover-up related to its newest drug. After a whistleblower dies, Kate knows the stakes are much higher than her other lawsuits.
Former Army Ranger turned private investigator Landon James is still haunted by mistakes made while serving overseas. Trying to forget the past, he is hired by Kate to look into the whistleblower's allegation and soon suspects that the company may be engaging in a dangerous game for profit. He also soon finds himself falling for this passionate and earnest young lawyer.
Determined not to make the same mistakes, he's intent on keeping Kate safe, but as the case deepens, it appears someone is willing to risk everything--even murder--to keep the case from going to trial.
My take: This is the first book in a new series. I really liked this because it not only focuses on the case but it also delves into the characters lives as well and not just the main character but into the other characters that would be considered as secondary. This reminded me a bit like the Women's Murder Club series which I also really like. This legal type thriller isn't covered much in the Christian Genre. There is murder but it isn't described in detailed. Also there is some violence but not in detail. Just enough detail to make it suspenseful. If you like legal thrillers and courtroom drama then you might like this book.
I received a review copy from Litfuse in exchange for my honest opinion.
