I was looking for a good book to read and blog about. I was given the opportunity by Tyndale House Publishers to read the new book by Randy Singer called Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales. They provided a free copy of the book in return for a blog post with a review of the book. I have read other Randy Singer books so I was excited and accepted the offer.
Once I started reading this book, I finished it in 3 days. That is pretty quick for me due to my work schedule. This is definitely one of those books you don’t want to put down! Only sleep each night forced me to put it down. This book is the story of a former college football player named Landon Reed. He was a star QB in the Southeastern Conference who was convicted in a point-shaving scheme. He spent 2 years in prsion due to a pleading quilty. While in prison he found forgiveness and faith in God. After leaving prison, he married his long time girlfriend who remained faithful to him while he was incarcerated. For the next three years he goes back to school and gets his law degree so he can practice law. His first challenge after earning his law degree is getting cleared by the BAR to practice law and to find a law firm hat would give him a chance. While waiting on the BAR committee’s decision, Harry McNaughten, one of the founding partners of the firm McNaughten and Clay, decides to give him a chance.
Landon is put on a murder case by Harry. Landon’s patience and will are put to the test quickly as Harry is shot in what looked like a robbery attempt. Not long after that, the jet that the firm was using exploded with 2 more of the lawyers of the law firm! Juggling the case, deaths, family responsibilities definitely try his faith in Christ. I don’t want to give away too many more details as I am hoping you will buy the book and read it. Randy Singer does a great job weaving together a great story that will keep you from putting this book down.
I give this book 5 of out 5 stars! Definitely worth the investment! For more information on the book and the author, check out the links below.
