Dead Lawyers Don't Lie by Mark Nolan **Review**




BLURB:

The killer aimed his weapon at the pregnant lawyer's rounded belly. He said "Bye-bye baby," and pulled the trigger. War veteran Jake Wolfe and his former military dog are targeted next. They must stop the assassin, or die trying. An action-packed thriller from beginning to end. Dead Lawyers Don’t Lie has been a #1 bestseller in Pulp Thrillers, and among the most popular books in Kindle Unlimited All-Stars.

Review:
This was a long read, but boy was it good! The author has such talent in writing and keeping the reader intrigued and interested in the story. I picked up this book with the plan to read a few chapters at a time during the weekend but I could not put it down. The characters were well developed with a great plot and a believable story-line.  I loved that it was fast paced but didn't move so fast that I was confused or lost. With all of the twists, turns, and surprises, this book kept me turning the page and guessing until the very end. I love thrillers so this was definitely my cup of coffee!

Excerpt:


Jake was a people watcher and his observant eyes took in details about the various individuals who were walking by. He noticed an attractive, well-dressed woman who wore her gray hair in an up-do style. She reminded him of his own grandmother, so full of life and love and wisdom. As she was getting into her car, a man grabbed her purse and tore it from her hand. The purse snatcher shoved her to the ground as he took off running toward Jake’s vehicle. Jake reacted without thinking, and he opened his car door into the path of the running man. He shoved the door fast and hard, and he straight-armed it like a football player.

The door and the purse snatcher collided, and the door won. The thief’s face smacked into the window, and his knees banged against the metal. He bounced off hard and landed flat on his back on the pavement, dropping the purse as he fell. Jake got out of his vehicle, closed the door and stood there looking down at the man. A bruise was forming on the man’s forehead. He struggled to his knees, and he glanced at the purse on the ground near Jake’s feet. Jake shook his head at him.

“Leave it.”

The man looked Jake up and down, and saw his worst case scenario, a vigilante who still believed in chivalry.
