Review + #Giveaway: Dead Lawyers Don't Lie by Mark Nolan @marknolan @GoddessFish

Dead Lawyers Don't Lie
by Mark Nolan
GENRE:  Thriller


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.


On the morning before attorney Richard Caxton was shot, he spent an hour in court doing what he did best—lying to the jury.

Caxton’s client was the wealthy son of a mortgage banker. Brice Riabraun had “allegedly” been driving under the influence of alcohol when he’d crashed his luxury SUV into the Tate family’s economy car. In court, Caxton claimed that the police had mishandled the case.

In Caxton’s successful cases he often found a loophole in the law, or a small procedural error by the police, or a semi-believable alibi that would hold up just long enough to bamboozle a jury. Caxton exploited these opportunities with the smooth talking technique of a used car salesman. Other attorneys in the city marveled at the creatively dishonest con man. He was a natural born liar. They were envious of him.

After arguing relentlessly for his version of the truth, Caxton now listened to the Honorable Judge Emerson pronounce his client not guilty.

Judge Emerson frowned after he read the verdict. Caxton had to make an effort not to laugh.

Brian Tate stood up and raised his voice as he spoke to the jury. “How could you find that criminal innocent when the police report said he was driving with a .15 blood alcohol concentration? Witnesses said that he drank seven beers before he crashed into our car and almost killed my wife and kids!”

Tate’s wife Judy sat next to him with her arm in a plaster cast. The twelve jurors seated in the jury box didn’t reply to Tate, or meet his eyes. Tate turned and stared at Caxton and his client with the fury of someone who has been cheated out of justice.

My Review:

Jake Wolfe is an ex-marine with a few secrets in his past that he would like to keep there. Yeah Jake has a few secrets that he would like to keep from everyone as well as himself if that is even possible. Now Jake is living the life of a photo journalist. Dead Lawyers Don’t Lie opens with Jake photographing the murder scene of a lawyer. While Jake is taking his photos he looks through the lens of his camera and what does he see but the killer himself staring back at him. Now this killer that is known as “The Artist” has more than a few lawyers on his hit list; now a photo journalist has just made it on to that list as well.

Jake may be a big, strong, and tough ex-marine but underneath this entire tough guy exterior is a big, strong and soft heart; who will do whatever it takes to save the people he loves and cares about. And the love he shows for his dog Cody just makes my heart swell. With Cody’s help Jake is trying to find out who this killer is and stop him. While Jake and a few other people are chasing after this killer; the killer is chasing after Jake but with Cody on his side there is no way Jake can lose. With two ex-marines on his tail there is no way The Artist can win. Oh did I mention Jake’s other marine buddy, Terrell who just happens to work for the police department is also on his side?

Dead Lawyers Don’t Lie took me on a very thrilling ride it was fast and furious. It is filled with so much action, suspense, love and laughter that will take you in from the first word written and will not let go until the last word. It kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was around the next corner. The suspense just builds up and up until you think you are going to burst and then bam it slams you right in the face and you are like didn’t see that one coming.

The whole time I was reading it I felt as if I was watching a movie and I thought to myself this is going to be a movie one day and I can’t wait to see it. I also can’t wait to read more about Jake, Cody, Terrell and so many other characters as well. What adventures will Jake, Cody and Terrell take us on next?
