ReviewAn Innocent Client by Scott Pratt audiobook
is a legal thriller which is the first one in the Joe Dillard’s series and that has all the ingredients that will leave you wanting to read more.
Everything starts with the death of a well-known preacher that was found murdered in a motel room. Apparently, the preacher had visited a “gentlemen’s club” the night before, and a young girl that works there is accused of the crime. Here is where Joe Dillard meets the owner of the “club”, who asks him to defend the girl who is being accused.
Joe Dillard is a criminal defense lawyer that is tired of defending criminals and it is planning his retirement along with his wife so he can find a balance in his life and some moral peace. Also, he has to deal with his family, because his sister is addicted to drugs and was just released from prison and his mother is suffering from Alzheimer’s. However, he postpones his plans of retiring so he can finally defend a person that seems to be innocent.
The novel has a good rhythm and feels real. We get an up-close view of how corrupted and hypocritical the judicial system is and how lawyers and judges manipulate the circumstances in their favor.
The characters are well-written and they have a good development. The relationships between them are credible and Dillard is a nice guy that anyone could like. He is very good at what he does and that is evident throughout the novel. The accuracy of the law aspects of the novel are definitely because of the degrees Scort Pratt
holds in both English and law.
The story has a good number of plotwists and it is a good option if we want to read something captivating that is easy to read and that we will be able to finish in a short period of time. We recommended it to all of the fans of thriller novels.
