Randy Singer in his book “Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales book coverDead Lawyers Tell No Tales” published by Tyndale House Publishers gives us a contemporary legal thriller.

From the Back Cover:  Landon Reed is an ex-quarterback convicted of organizing a points-shaving scheme. During his time in prison, he found forgiveness and faith and earned his law degree. Now he longs for an opportunity to prove his loyalty and worth.

“Be careful what you ask for.”

Harry McNaughton is one of the founding partners of McNaughton & Clay–and the only lawyer willing to take a chance employing an ex-con-turned-lawyer. Though Landon initially questions Harry’s ethics and methods, it’s clear the crusty old lawyer has one of the most brilliant legal minds Landon has ever encountered. The two dive into preparing a defense for one of the highest-profile murder trials Virginia Beach has seen in decades when Harry is gunned down in what appears to be a random mugging. Then two more lawyers are killed when the firm’s private jet crashes. Authorities suspect someone has a vendetta against McNaughton & Clay, leaving Landon and the remaining partner as the final targets. As Landon struggles to keep the firm together, he can’t help but wonder, is the plot related to a shady case from McNaughton & Clay’s past, or to the murder trial he’s neck-deep in now? And will he survive long enough to find out?

When I was growing up a courtroom drama for me was watching, or reading, “Perry Mason”.  Simple, straight-forward, a murder occurs, the wrong person is accused and Perry defends justice prevails.  In “Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales” Randy Singer goes well beyond what I grew up with.  How do you say, thriller?  Just say Randy Singer.  Landon Reed’s life is in great danger practically from when he joins the firm of McNaughten and Clay.  “Dead Lawyers Tell No Tales” is entertaining and will have you flipping pages as fast as you can read but, be prepared, it is also thought-provoking as it explores unethical lawyers and their consequences.  This is a multi-faceted story with interconnected subplots that will keep you guessing until the end.  I do not recommend starting this book late at night because it will cost you sleep as you will not want to put it down.  Randy Singer is an excellent writer and knows how to twist your nerve endings as he tightens the suspense.  I recommend this book highly!
