Summary

Joe Dillard is a two-million-copy best-selling series.  

A beautiful, young, rising star in the country music world is found dead in a Nashville hotel room. 

The owner of her record company is charged with murder. 

In the seventh installment of Scott Pratt's best-selling Joe Dillard series, Dillard is hired to travel to Tennessee's capital city to defend Paul Milius, a record company baron accused of strangling Kasey Cartwright, his label's young star. Dillard navigates Nashville's unfamiliar legal system and the world of country music in search of the truth, but he soon finds himself confronted with a web of lies so masterfully woven that he fears he may never find any answers. As the trial begins and the tension mounts, Dillard fears that not only will his client be wrongfully convicted but that Dillard himself may not survive.

Critic reviews

"Pratt's richly developed characters are vivid and believable, especially the strong Southern women who fight their male-dominated culture from behind a facade of vulnerability." (Publisher's Weekly

Excellent

After the last episode this one is back to the courtroom and the legal genre that Scott Pratt writes so well OK the ending is perhaps a little far fetched but overall a good story, the only downside is that these stories are so short and seemingly getting shorter.

Good solid story, fine narration

Kept my attention and I stayed in the driveway more than once to finish a chapter. That's all I ask

I hope there will be more of this series.

A Crime of Passion is Book 7 in Scott Pratt's extraordinary Joe Dillard series (yes, I know that Audible lists it as Book 6, but that is not correct). I hope it is not the final Joe Dillard novel. Scott Pratt is now on my short list of favorite mystery/thriller authors and is #1 in the legal thriller category. Tim Campbell flawlessly narrates all of the novels in the series.

Highly recommended, but read the series in order.

Another Home Run By Scott Pratt

What an excellent job Scott Pratt did in writing this series. Every book has had a riveting plot and the characters blend seamlessly from novel to novel. I have a hard time finding a stopping place in all the books because they never cease to hold my attention.

An enjoyable read,

The author wove together an interesting story, I loved the interpretation by the reader. I knew exactly whom was speaking.

Riveting

The storyline continues without any mediocre details. The narrator flows into each character in a way that allows my imagination to picture the character. This story was not predictable.

A Crime of Passion

Very good. Everyone loses. So true in real life when hatred rules ones heart and ambition. Thank-you for another thought provoking story.

Such a dissappointment

I loved the first book in this series and thought perhaps I was on to the next Phillip Margolin. I had planned to go through the entire series. But with each book, the presentation became weaker and the characters failed to develop into their potential. The stories have become more and more simple. None have the creative ending of the first. The effort in the stories appear to be less and less. Finally there was an editorial comment directed at the reader like a footnote that yanked me out of the story and I realized the frustration I was feeling. I am so disappointed in the series and plan to return it.
