“I received this book as an ARC and I’m giving an honest review.”
A mysterious killer who goes by the name of The Artist is running around and killing hot-shot and wealthy Lawyers. When he makes Jake Wolfe his latest target, Jake has to defy all odds and use his wits to track and capture this gun-for-hire. With his life on the line, the clock is ticking and the killer is getting closer with every passing second.
Dead Lawyers Don’t Lie is a Mystery/Thriller book. It is 630 pages of pure thrill. As soon as I started reading the book, I was sucked into the depths of the story. The suspense of the book starts building up from the very first page and it goes on till the very end.
Starting with the cover of the book, it’s good. It justifies the plot of the book and it’s the type of cover which attracts you, especially when you are looking for something mysterious. The title was what stole my attention. It was like this book was tailor made for me and was almost screaming at me to read it.
The book maintained a steady pace throughout. The plot was riveting and filled with suspense. The writing style of the author was easy to comprehend and interesting. The story line gets a definite A plus from my side. The actions sequences were also very well penned. The unpredictability of the book was what kept it interesting till the very end. Also, the introduction of numerous sub-plots kept the book from becoming mundane and bland. There was always something new and heart-stopping in every chapter.
Coming to the characters, I think I need to admit that I fell in love with every single character that the author introduced. Even our killer. The characters were crafted beautifully. They had strong will, sharp minds, and an amazing personality. During the entire course of the novel, I could literally see the characters evolving and maturing. This is what I liked the most about the book.
I personally loved the main character – Jake – and his strong will. He is not like our traditional hero. It’s his devil-may-care attitude about the laws that made the book hilariously entertaining. It’s a difficult job to add humour to a book which is supposed to be a serious one but the author does it beautifully.
Mark Nolan has the details of the investigation and forensics down to the point. The book had deep intel on forensics and was a beautifully penned detective thriller. The pages just whizzed by and, like all amazing things, the book ended.
The book was intricately woven tying up almost ever lose string and the climax satisfied me but left me yearning for more. I can’t wait to read the next instalment of the series. Long story short, I loved the book. Period.
So, while I try and get my hands on the second book in the series, you, my dear friends, purchase a copy of Dead Lawyer’s Don’t Lie! The book will keep you bouncing on the edge of your seat and will leave you craving for more.
Ps. If you love James Patterson, you’ve come to the right place.
