This was a great book! For the most part, it kept me company on a train ride to and from Toronto (because who wants to DRIVE to Union Station!? Not this girl!!), so I read the latter half of the book in one day. Awesome!
Kate Sullivan is a lawyer who’s just been tapped to be lead counsel in a “corporate cover-up lawsuit against Mason Pharmaceutical.” She knows this case could make or break her career, but as the case unfolds, what she didn’t expect was that it could also ruin friendships, and even put her in danger.
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.
With characters that were well developed and engaging — some set up so you’d dislike them right from the start, and others that you just don’t see coming — Rachel Dylan crafts a story that “rivals a John Grisham novel,” or so says Dani Pettrey in a quote they used on the front of the book. I’ve read Dani Pettrey’s books before and as a great suspense writer herself, if she sings high praises, I’m all in. Another award-winning author is Lynette Eason, and her endorsement was printed on the back of the book. How could I go wrong?
Well, I didn’t go wrong at all. Pettrey and Eason weren’t kidding. This book was fantastic from start to end. It reminded me of the tv show “The Practice” that was on years ago, in the way things were described. Granted, I haven’t seen it in years, but still — that’s the imagery it evoked. I’ll absolutely be keeping my eye out for Rachel Dylan in the future, and with my new Amazon Audible subscription, maybe my books-to-read list can shrink faster and I can get there!
I highly recommend you give it a try! And if you’re curious about the other authors I mentioned, check out Always Watching (Lynette Eason), book 1 in the Elite Guardian series (I haven’t read the others, though they’re on the 500-book-long list….), or Cold Shot (Dani Pettrey).
