BOOK REVIEW: Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales by Randy Singer

Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales by Randy Singer

The popularity of John Grisham has shown there is a huge audience for legal fiction. If you're in that group, you won't be disappointed reading this book.

However, in my mind, Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales is much more than a story with a courtroom angle. It's about marriage, friendship, teamwork, trust, learning from mistakes, vengeance, and finding God.

Landon Reed, a former quarterback who goes to prison for two years for point-shaving, goes to law school after serving his time even though he knows it will be hard to get his license and a job because of his past. His wife, Kerri, who waited for him while he was in prison, is an excellent helpmate, but she has a career of her own. After Landon lands a job, their marriage is strained when they are pulled in different directions because of their careers. Landon works long hours and weekends to prove his worth to Harry McNaughten, the man who took a chance hiring him. Kerri travels to D.C. to interview Sean Phoenix, a former CIA agent who now heads a private company with branches throughout the world. It doesn't help that Landon and Kerri have a young daughter and a small dog.

Harry is killed before Landon has gained much experience. However, Landon uses his quarterback experience and intelligence to make good decisions.

There are many twists and turns and you won't easily figure it out. But, you will certainly enjoy the journey.
