Deadly Proof by Rachel Dylan tells a tale about the medical malpractice engaged in by a large drug company. One of their drugs seems to cause brain tumors. Attorney Kate Sullivan is lead counsel on the class action suit, but when a meeting with a possible whistle-blower ends up in the informant’s death, Rachel knows there is more to meet the eye than just the suit. When she is threatened, she hires ex-Army Ranger Landon James for security.
Landon digs into the death of the informant and tries to find another. He too feels there is much more going on in the drug company than just the existing case. As they go deeper into the research on the alleged malpractice, Kate is injured in a parking lot staircase by an unknown assailant. Landon ramps up security and brings in a friend’s company to help, so Kate is under twenty-four-hour protections. At the same time as the ramp-up in securing, there is a ramp-up in affections between the two.
I enjoyed reading Deadly Proof. Dylan writes memorable characters and her research and presentation of the legal aspects of the medical malpractice case appears impeccable. Kate and Landon became real characters to me-the dialog realistic. I so loved the action and the interaction among all the characters-good and bad. I hated to see the book end, and I was happy to see Deadly Proof is only Book One in the Atlanta Justice series. Five Stars!
Deadly Proof is but one of Rachel Dylan’s adventures into romantic and legal fiction. She has been an attorney for over a ten years and was a litigator at a national law firm. She says she enjoys combining the law with suspense and romance in her stories. She, her husband, and five “furkids” live in Michigan.
Bethany House gave me a copy of Deadly Proof, but I was in no way obligated to write a review.
