Deadly Proof by Rachel Dylan -- my REVIEW
Ooohhh! I just read a GREAT book! This book you see pictured above is a new favorite, and I cannot wait for the second in the series! Deadly Proof, by Rachel Dylan, is a great mystery story with a teeny bit of romance in it, that will keep your interest and find you reading later than you planned :)
The story centers on a legal case involving a pharmaceutical company being sued in a class action-type event. The company has produced a drug which would help with extreme migranes, but the side-effect was tumors that grew quickly and produced deaths as a result.
Kate, a lawyer, is the prosecuter assigned to lead this case. She begins her story by meeting with an employee of the drug company (a research scientist) who wants to give her some secret information against the company. Unfortunately, before she can get the whole story, the scientist is murdered.
Meanwhile, the law firm defending the drug company begins working on clearing the case. The head lawyer, who knows Kate on a social basis, is faced with some ethical dilemmas when he is instructed to do basically whatever it takes to win, including some shady or even just plain illegal activities.
Mixed in with this all, Kate is attacked on several levels and hires a security firm. She and the bodyguard discover a mutual attraction, which is just a smal part of the story.
You will have to read this story to find out how the case progresses and is resolved. It is not a very predictable story--lots of twists and surprises! It is written in a very interesting way; it held my attention through to the end (which, yes, I admit, I did just keep reading, blocking out everything around me for that last bit!!)
This book is full of excitement, intrigue, scheming, mystery, drama, and a little romance. It is very well-written, and covers different parts of the story (as seen from different characters' points). It is also published by a Christian publishing name and has definite elements of faith and its importance, as well as being a "clean" book (no profanity or morally questionable content). I would definitely recommend this as a great read!
